President’s Welcome

Hello, I am Konstantinos Patsiouras, the President and Chairman of the Board of the Greek Chapter of the International Facility Management Association.

2024 marks as a notable year in our calendars, since it is the birth year of IFMA’s Greek Chapter. IFMA helps facilities management professionals advance personally and professionally through career development, learning, networking opportunities, and leadership skills.

The Facilities Management Industry in the Greek territory is booming over the last decade, with hundreds of new professionals joining the sector. Our goal as an organization, is to bring all of those professionals together, to discuss past experiences, lessons to be learned and other matters related to the industry.

Furthermore, we bring to the table three prestigious credentials (CFM, FMP and SFP), which will assist all FM professionals as they expand their knowledge and demonstrate effective facilities management.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, we invite you to explore our redesigned website and reach out to any of us for more information.

We look forward to an exciting year for the Greek Chapter of IFMA, as we live, work and serve one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
