The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has today announced that Ray Perry will succeed James Sutton as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in May 2016.

The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has today announced the appointment of Ray Perry as the Institute’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The appointment comes after an extensive recruitment process following the November announcement that current CEO, James Sutton, would step down in summer 2016.

Ray is currently Chief Executive of the National Pawnbrokers Association and has held director level positions at the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and Mattel Inc. Ray brings with him a wealth of professional body, trade association and commercial experience; with achievements spanning across brand development, membership, training, qualifications and legislative influence.

Ray will take up the CEO post in late May 2016 and undertake a detailed handover to ensure a smooth transition with James.

Speaking on his appointment, Ray Perry said: “Joining the BIFM at this time is a great opportunity and I look forward to working with the Board, the team and the volunteer community to continue and build on the institute’s development and successes. I’ll be working closely with James and the Board to ensure a smooth transition over the coming months.”

BIFM Chairman Julie Kortens said: “I am delighted that we have appointed a Chief Executive of Ray Perry’s calibre to the BIFM. He brings with him a wealth of experience built up across a broad range of professional bodies and sectors. I would also like to thank James Sutton, our outgoing CEO. He has made a tremendous contribution to the BIFM.”
