For Alfredo Romeo, the new IFMA Italia president, a new structural plan aimed to create an industry focused on the territory services can be considered as a new Marshall Plan, bringing along, both in an economies of scale and linked industry point of view, a fresh know-how and a different education process, as well as new cultural centers and values.
Marco Desio has left the presidence of IFMA Italia in favour of Alfredo Romeo, founder Roma Immobiliare (1979), Roma Investimenti (1985), Roma Gestioni (1989), Roma Alberghi and Romeo Partecipazioni (2001), and today chief of Romeo Group, the major european Integrated Facility Management services supplier for Real Estate.
“Taking the lead of the association, main benchmark for the italian Facility Management market,” Romeo said “it is very important to me, expecially now, in this difficult historical period. I’m sure that the italian FM market can drive the italian economic ricovery, on condition that we will be able to create new rules for public-private partnerships, in order to really change the Pubblic Amministration”.
Among the different points of the new presidency’s program we can find the promotion of the Facility Management on the territory as the key element for the urban redevelopment, the reform of the public contract competitions and and the administrative streamlining.
The new IFMA board will be composed also by Marco Decio, that will remain as vice-president, Paolo Cavallo as treasurer and the council members Alberto Cannistrà, Gianmaurizio Cazzarolli, Domenico Cipolletta e Davide Pellegatta.
