A career-long disruptor of the status quo in the Corporate Real Estate and Facilities Management (CRE/FM) industry, Vik often takes conventional wisdom to task in his books, articles, and speaking engagements.
His criticism of the traditional CRE/FM outsourcing process is often delivered with humor, but his underlying message is on point: “Far too many Corporate Real Estate and Facilities Management leaders enter into 5-year (or longer) relationships with their service provider without really knowing their partner. If you wouldn’t do this in your personal life, why on earth would you do it in business?”
Vik started Verum Consulting in 2008 to bring fresh new ideas to CRE/FM outsourcing and Verum’s OutsourceUSA Network (http://www.OutsourceUSA.com) offers specialized corporate real estate, facilities management, workplace strategy and proptech services via 12 independent firms.
Vik’s book, Quaere Verum (Seek the Truth) is a collection of his CRE/FM articles and random observations of life. The book is available for FREE. Simply click on the book image or the following link to view or save a .pdf version: Quaere Verum
