Member Jeff Watson in the Spotlight

How long have you been a member of IFMA Charlotte?
Since June, 2020.

Why did you join IFMA Charlotte?
I joined because I wanted to meet and network with people in the Facilities Management Industry.

What do you enjoy most about the FM industry?
?  The people that make up the industry.  All of the people that work behind the scenes to make sure businesses have a place to operate safely and reliably.

What is your favorite tip for someone new in this industry?
Find a mentor, many times you feel like you are putting together a puzzle and a relationship with someone who has been in the industry can help you avoid common mistakes.

What do you like to do in your free-time?
? I like to spend time outdoors in the woods, whether it is walking the pines at my farm or hiking a trail in the mountains.

If you could adopt an animal from the zoo, what would it be and why?
We recently drove through the Lazy 5 Ranch in the Mooresville area and I fell in love with the Scottish Highland cows.  They are so gentle and look so funny with their long, shaggy coats.

What was your first concert, when and where??
Now you are dating me, my first concert was The Eagles in the Charlotte Coliseum (now Bojangle's Arena).  I was a kid and, wow; what a different world I was exposed to.
