10 QUESTIONS


In each issue we ask an FM professional the Tomorrow’s FM 10 questions. This month we spoke to Gregory Blondeau, Founder of Proxyclick.


10 QUESTIONS WITH... Q3


Q4 Q5


WHO, IN ANY OTHER INDUSTRY, DO YOU MOST ADMIRE?


Probably Elon Musk, even if it sounds a bit cliché.


IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT, WHAT CAR WOULD YOU BUY?


I don't think I'd buy a car, owning a car is kind of outdated, I prefer to call one with my smartphone.


HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THE FACILITIES MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY?


I would like to stop hearing that FM people are not listened to. If you are good at your job you have an impact, if you have an impact you are listened to, many great FMs are.

Q1 Q2


in Munich


HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE FACILITIES MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY?


I visited many company lobbies, I saw stressed and overworked receptionists mishandling visitors, I saw frustrated visitors looking for the right street address. I was even named Mr. Bin London once, when a receptionist misspelled my name badge...I was convinced that technology could solve this, started Proxyclick and entered the FM industry.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE GROWING UP?


Become an entrepreneur and make a change.


IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER FOR A DAY, WHAT WOULD


IT BE AND WHY?


Time travel, so I could discover other cultures and places in a different period.


IF YOU COULD HOST A DINNER PARTY WITH ANY THREE GUESTS,
