Facility Management

After high school, Iris decided to study the bachelor in Facilities Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Nijmegen. After she graduated in 2015, Iris started working as a facility consultant for Ifmec. Over the last 5 years, she worked on facility and workplace projects for international companies as Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Amgen and Rabobank, and national government organizations. While working for Ifmec, Iris had the opportunity to follow the post-bachelor and MSc in Facilities Management. In 2019 Iris graduated with distinction for the MSc Applied Facilities Management of Liverpool John Moores University and received an IFMA Foundation scholarship, sponsored by the IFMA Houston chapter, for her great achievements. The IFMA Houston chapter handed out the scholarship to Iris during World Workplace in Phoenix. Attending to World Workplace was a perfect opportunity for Iris to meet her sponsors as well to start building up an international network with facility management professionals since Iris has the ambition to work abroad to develop facility management worldwide.
