Erik Jaspers Elevated to IFMA Fellow
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has recognised the contribution of Erik Jaspers, Global Strategy & Innovation Director at Planon, to its international development by naming him as a Fellow.
Jaspers, a consummate FM Technology expert who has helped define the agenda for information technology in the field of FM and Corporate Real Estate, is a founding member of the IFMA Workplace Evolutionaries (WE) Community and an active member of the IFMA Research and Benchmarking Institute, where he is involved in developing internal and joint research initiatives.
As a Trustee of the IFMA Foundation, Jaspers was instrumental in improving the European university accreditation process which led to eight more institutions applying for and attaining accreditation. A member of the IFMA EMEA Advisory Board (now the IFMA EMEA Board of Directors), Erik also contributed to the establishment and continuous development of the collaboration with the European Commission on topics like technology in the built environment, the EU Green Deal and the EU Energy Directive.
IFMA also commended the way Jaspers has shared the benefits of the large, global network he has built during his international roles at Planon, and through the association’s engagements with multiple organisations including FM Netherlands (FMN) and The German Facility Management Association (GEFMA).
The IFMA Fellows Program was established in 1992 to recognise association members who have distinguished themselves within the organisation and across the field of facilities management. IFMA Fellows form an elite core of respected leaders who advise and represent the association.
