Dedicated to enhancing recognition of FM in Asia, Kenneth FOO has worked with business leaders and local authorities to help them understand the value of FM in an ever-changing business climate; nurturing and mentoring FMs to be leaders in their own rights; and promoting FM as a way to bring business, engineering and people of different backgrounds and experiences together to meet management goals. His efforts as founding member and president of the IFMA Singapore chapter led to acceptance of IFMA courses into Singapore’s universities and polytechnics.
