LAUNCHING FACILITIES MANAGEMENT INTO A NEW ERA
Innate curiosity and an irrepressible drive to tinker and test led technologist Richard Ham to turn the world of facilities & asset management on its head when he founded FMClarity in 2015.
Fed up with the antiquated, clunky legacy systems that were keeping facilities & asset management stuck in the past, Richard tackled the problems of FM from a completely new angle.
Throwing out the old, siloed way of working that was weighed down with inefficiencies such as duplication, double-handing and a lack of transparency, Richard drew on his extensive facilities and property management experience to design and build a modern, intuitive solution from the inside out – one that would transform facilities & asset management, bringing all stakeholders together into a single source of truth.
Even from childhood, Richard was compelled to invent, elbow deep in odds-and-ends in his Dad’s shed, building backyard spaceships with his eyes set far beyond the horizon. This entrepreneurial vision was the catalyst behind FMClarity.
During his 15-year career in commercial property management and real estate, including roles at JLL and PwC in Melbourne, Australia, Richard gained hands-on experience and an insider’s perspective on the unique complexities of facilities & asset management.
Just as he’d once imagined steering those homebuilt spaceships out into the universe, Richard now leads FMClarity into a revolutionary new era of innovative, hi-tech facilities management.
