Looking for a Facility Management Senior-Level Mentor?


Marc Bernath Burke, VA

My target objective when I “retire” (transition) is to get a VP/Director of Facilities Management/Public Works position at a higher educational institution, municipality, or large business. I spent over 20 years doing this in the military and am currently a Public Works Director for a major Navy Installation. I am posting this in hopes to find a potential mentor for the next year as I was told there is no one with this background currently available in the mentor pool. My ideal mentor is already at this level working outside of the military. Thanks, Marc

Jennifer, Thanks for the response. I already attempted this. The problem is there is no category for Facilities Managment/Public Works. My ACP advisor has not been able to find me a match. This post was a open call/attempt to possibly find someone that has this skillset, but perhaps is listed under another category. Marc

Hello Marc,
I would suggest using the community tab, then clicking on the advisor button. Once there, you can narrow down the search by using the refine button. You can put in your career interest and level of experience you want your mentor to have. After reading through the advisor's information, you can message them and see if they would be open to answering your questions. I hope this helps you out and good luck with your retirement!
