About Leo Laanen
As someone from Brabant, Leo Laanen started studying Business Administration at the Technical University in Eindhoven and continued this study at the University of Groningen. In his first job as an employee of the Institute of Organizational Psychology, he developed higher management courses for the North and simultaneously taught at the Institute for Facility Management (THW) at Hanze University Groningen. Based on his entrepreneurial drive, Leo started in 1986 with the establishment of a facility knowledge center: the later Ifmec. At a strategic level, Leo fulfills the role of director. He is responsible for the ins and outs of the company. By regularly visiting his employees and relations on location and giving guest lectures or presentations, he transfers knowledge but also gains new knowledge. In addition, Leo is continuously expanding Ifmec’s international network based on his conviction that Facility Management from the Netherlands matters internationally.
The motto of Ifmec is: “Facilitating Excellence”. This is done in the various sectors, including the healthcare sector, government and business. Through the research conducted by Ifmec within Research & Innovation, the latest developments on themes within Facility Management are constantly analyzed and applied. In this way, Ifmec not only develops but also contributes to the development of the field. The Ifmec professionals are actively involved in these studies and bring information from them to their various projects, thereby supporting clients in their pursuit of excellence.
