The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has announced the appointment of Jacqueline Balian as commercial director.

 

Balian joins BIFM to strengthen the senior management team at the institute led by chief executive Linda Hausmanis and both aim to “address new opportunities and challenges facing the sector, including meeting shifting customer expectations, attracting and nurturing talent, and adopting new practices and tools that support greater productivity and organisational performance”.

 

Balian brings experience in the property and construction sectors, most recently as commercial director at the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), where she was responsible for improving and growing the institute’s member services.

 

Before this she was head of renewable heat incentive operations at Ofgem and was managing director at the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers’ commercial arm CIBSE Services, where she devised and led the roll-out of key initiatives including the Low Carbon Assessor Scheme.

 

Hausmanis said: “Jacqueline will play a major role in shaping our future products and services, but she’ll also help us develop our strategy to provide the leadership our industry needs to adopt new methods and technologies that, ultimately, support greater workplace productivity.”
