We are proud to announce that our CEO, Stan Mitchell, has received a prestigious BSI Leadership Award from the British Standards Institution (BSI). The accolade was for “strong and visionary” leadership, and Stan’s outstanding contribution to raising the status and standards of the global facilities management (FM) discipline.
The BSI cited Stan’s “enthusiasm, superb industry reputation and support for new members”. This was seen as important in maintaining membership and momentum Chair of the FM Technical Committee. He has held this position for the 13 years since its inauguration.
Of his achievements, the BSI drew special attention to how Stan personally galvanised international support for a new ISO FM committee. He subsequently also led its creation and the initiation of the new ISO FM Management System Standard, ISO 41001.
Also commended was Stan’s leadership as acting chair of a UK panel which supports ISO experts. In this role, he was said to have demonstrated “diplomacy and excellent communication skills which have helped resolve a number of fundamental disagreements through consensus”.
Congratulations Stan! Below is a photo of the BSI award taking pride of place on the wall at our Head Office.
