Speaker: Adrian Jarvis, Director, FSI Middle East
British national, Adrian Jarvis, has over 20 years’ experience and knowledge of facilities management service provision, processes and practices. With foundations in engineering management, Jarvis has been working for FSI since 1998 when the company was named Facilities Software International.
Prior to joining FSI, he spent 5 years managing a UK-based maintenance contracting business which provided MEP services to a number of blue chip companies, including organisations with nationwide property portfolios.
During his time at FSI, Jarvis has been at the forefront of the adoption of FM software technology by in-house facilities managers, maintenance contractors, and FM service providers. He has been responsible for managing major client relationships in all industry sectors, and has been involved with major projects in the UK, across Europe, the Middle East, Canada and Australia.
Prior to moving to his current role in the Middle East, Jarvis was actively involved in the UK’s Facilities Management Association (FMA) and is a member of the British Institute of Facilities Management. He continues to maintain MBIFM status and is an active supporter of MEFMA.
In November 2009, Jarvis moved to Dubai within the FSI group as General Manager and has since restructured and strengthened the position of the company in the GCC. Under his guidance, FSI Middle East continues to secure high profile projects across the MENA region, and he has since been promoted to Director of FSI Middle East.
