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 management on its head when he founded FMClarity in 2015.
Fed up with the antiquated, clunky legacy systems that were keeping facilities 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 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 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.
