After more than nine years on the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management’s London region committee, Magenta’s founder Cathy Hayward has become chairman of the IWFM London region. The move follows Jason Cousins’, the previous chair and director of FM at Lazards, promotion to chairman of Members’ Council.
Cathy has volunteered for the institute since she set up Magenta in 2011, initially as an awards judge before joining the IWFM London region committee. She was instrumental in relaunching the region’s annual conference – which takes place in November this year – as well as running a host of other events. Cathy has a long-standing relationship with the IWFM having launched FM World in April 2004 and editing the title for seven years before setting up Magenta.
“After several years supporting Jason, I’m excited to step into his shoes and drive the region forward,” said Cathy. “Coming at a time when we can’t hold face-to-face events, there’s a real challenge to engage meaningfully with our members and I’m looking forward to working with the membership and the team at IWFM HQ to achieve that.”
The IWFM London region represents those working in workplace and facilities management in London, including both the City of London and the 32 boroughs that make up Greater London.
The IWFM’s Regions are a place to keep on top of the profession in your local area. They provide guidance and insight and encourage member interaction and networking through relevant events.
