Patrick Dyer:  My Mission

My mission as the President of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico is to make this organization a resource within the State of New Mexico for all building professionals, tradesmen, and anyone involved with facility management. I believe we can serve this community as a primary resource by providing our membership with access to the industry leading technology and knowledge which facility managers need to perform their jobs, and additionally to provide the endless networking possibilities which are critical in this environment. Our goal is to increase our membership base to include anyone who specializes as a facility manager, engineer, blue collar worker, business owner, or civic leader. 

I have extensive experience in facility management and operations. From 2001 to 2007 I worked as an operations manager directly overseeing a 15 member service staff within the downtown Albuquerque area where I was responsible for special events and primarily served as a first responder for the Business Improvement District. While holding this position I worked closely with the City of Albuquerque regarding urban development, planning projects for the downtown area. I also served as a director for a federal halfway house, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the facility for 2 years, managing a team of 11 staff members, while working at the Albuquerque Convention Center. My next assignment was Facility Maintenance Director for the Rio Rancho Public Schools; I served for over 5 years. I now serve as the General Services Director for Presbyterian Medical Services where I oversee all maintenance, renovation, and construction projects for the organization.

My lifelong involvement with sports beginning with local youth sports leagues at age six through my collegiate career at New Mexico State University where I played as a defensive lineman and later coached for NMSU football for two years   has taught me the value of teamwork and has provided me with the tools to effectively lead and enthusiastically inspire whatever organization where I choose to be involved.  Connecting with people is the key to any successful career or organization. I will bring my experience and ability to my role as the president of FMANM.

2019 Fab O&M Show Smashing Success for All

Facility professionals converged in October at the Sandia Resort and Casino for innovative information provided by highly motivated suppliers and to hear three expert speakers whose highly relevant topics underscored the credibility of the annual event. The Facility and Building Operations and Maintenance Show had free food, fifty-dollar gift cards, and a 65" Smart TV give-away (won by Vanessa Holiday, Office of Special Trustees, Department of the Interior) sponsored by National Roofing. The stage was set as facility and building operations managers, engineers, and property managers from across the state networked together and visited with their current and future suppliers.

Five heavy hitting corporate sponsors underwrote the event for 2019: National Roofing, JB Henderson Construction, The DVL Group, Kinetic Improvement, and Top Tier Service were the premier supporters. David Griego, a Facility Manager for the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute commented, "I found that folks were willing to take the time to discuss their products and services in unhurried detail."  The real estate giant CBRE deployed multiple property managers who visited each supplier booth.  Eaton Sales and Services' Project Manager Tony Grezeszak, a first-time exhibitor, commented, "Success!  New connections made and old ones reestablished!"

The spirit of friendliness and cooperation makes the FAB O&M Show event unique.  The trade show was jointly sponsored by the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico and the Associated Builders and Contractors of New Mexico.
