hris Stoddart MCIOB, FBIFM was as comfortable in a hard hat on site as addressing the board. His career spanned construction, corporate real estate and facilities management, working for globally renowned brands. It was no surprise that Chris had won Facilities Manager of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award with BIFM and that he was held in high regard by his clients and employers.

His ability to give high-impact, unbiased, data-driven advice to senior business leaders stood out. This ability was not just the essence of the man, but became the genesis of an idea for continuing his work after his sudden, tragic loss in 2014.
