Cameron Christensen, CEFP, FMP is Associate Vice President of Facilities Management at The Juilliard School in New York City and the author of the book, “Building T.E.A.M.S.: A Guide to Capital Needs Analysis” which he wrote with his late father. Mike Petrusky revisits his trip last year to the Big Apple when he met with Cam in person and they discussed asset management and facilities maintenance in the “age of acceleration” where the impact of technology is significant. Mike asks Cam to tell the story of how he picked up the mantle of his father's work and finished the book he began about recapitalization planning and total cost of ownership modeling while also addressing the value of data and other elements that impact the built environment. With his new asset management focused perspective, Mike now understands more about the technical side of Cameron’s expertise, but they still both agree that “facilities management is people management” and they celebrate with a Maynard Ferguson inspired trumpet edition of “podcast karaoke”!
