This month’s speakers

Richard Ham - Founder and Chief Executive Officer, FM Clarity

FMClarity has a single mission: to create simple, yet powerful, intuitive software that makes the job of managing facilities and compliance dramatically easier than anything else in the market. Basically to make it easier for FMs!

Richard has an extensive background in property, both academically with a Masters in Property as well as ~20 years in commercial property management, including tier 1 organisations such as JLL and PwC. His core focus now is on creating simple and intuitive solutions to the problems he personally faced when managing commercial property. This acute awareness of the inefficiency, lack of transparency and risks accepted by property professionals was a big driver for Richard in leaving the secure fold of corporate property. He clearly relishes a challenge (evidenced by his pastime of climbing up cliffs), and has applied his in-depth knowledge of technology, accounting and the property management sector, to bring to fruition FMClarity, which has already begun to revolutionise the way the property and facility management sector does business.
