05-07-18 13:35 BIFM

During today’s BIFM Annual General Meeting in Manchester, Marilyn Standley was announced as a Non-Executive Director, having received the largest number of member votes. Marilyn assumes the position with immediate effect.

Marilyn brings extensive Board level experience in Executive and Non-Executive roles, and an understanding of the contribution an independent, committed and knowledgeable non-executive can make, especially at a time of change.

Her FM experience encompasses a variety of workplaces and public spaces, and spans commercial, client and consultant roles, and as a Director, Marilyn has worked in the commercial property and FM sector, and managed her own business for over 15 years. Her FM experience has included major capital projects and wide-ranging responsibilities for facilities and related services in hospitals, prisons and other public buildings as well as major office and production environments.

Having worked as a Non-Executive Director in the NHS, and as Chair of an international language charity, Marilyn has a strong understanding of the important role an effective Non-Executive Director can play in bringing independent judgement, external experience and careful examination to the operational experience of the Executive Board.

Commenting in the lead up to the announcement, Marilyn said: “My membership of the BIFM predates its inception, as I was Chair of the AFM at the time of its merger with the IFM. These two organisations subsequently became BIFM and as Chair of the merged organisation I oversaw those early days of its formation.

“I have remained active in the BIFM, to varying degrees depending upon workload and now retired, I chair the recently reformed Fellows Committee. I believe the BIFM has an exciting future, and that my experience will be especially useful to the organisation at a time of change. I am passionate about the sector, and about its ongoing development. I am excited to be part of the next part of its evolution, and to contribute to that process.”
