Tom Richter, Executive Director of Swiftel Center/Venuworks among 14 to earn designations as Certified Facilities Executive from the International Association of Venue Managers.
Fourteen venue industry professionals received their Certified Facilities Executive (CFE) designation from the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) during VenueConnect, the Association’s annual conference and trade show, held in New Orleans, La. CFE applicants are rated on their experience and accomplishments in public venue management and must successfully complete a comprehensive written essay, written examination and oral interview that tests general knowledge of the public venue management profession. The CFE designation demonstrates that a facility executive: is a skilled manager, is committed to the industry, and is pledged to continued professional growth and development. Managers who earn the CFE designation are recognized, by those inside and outside the industry, as experts in their profession.
IAVM newly inducted Board Chairman, John Bolton, CFE, said, “Since 1976 this prestigious program has served as a distinction for those in facility management. I would like to offer my congratulations to each of these individuals. There is no doubt that their hard work and leadership are to be admired within the industry.”
Tom Richter who has been with the Swiftel Center since 1998 is among the 14 venue management professionals to be awarded a CFE this year. “With over 15 years in the industry, our organization is extremely lucky to have such a dedicated, highly trained and well regarded individual as Tom in a leadership role,” says Steve Peters, President/CEO of VenuWorks. “Our company believes professional development for our management team benefits our clients.”
The CFE designation is an indication of demonstrated skill in leadership, activity in community affairs and expertise in management of public venues. The elite group of 285 now includes the following newly awarded CFEs to its honor roll:
