Ram Devagiri has joined Knight Frank as Executive Director and Head of Facility Management Services (FMS) replacing Nellie Samuel, who headed FM for the past 17 years.
Ram comes with more than 20 years of experience in senior management roles in the property and professional services sector across three continents. Ram was Director Operations Australia for Sodexo, where he was responsible for the strategic management and operational delivery of an IFM portfolio. Prior to Sodexo, Ram worked in Compass Group, Australia where he devised and implemented client relationship programmes for key accounts.
“This is a great opportunity for me to be part of the competitive business environment in India. The swiftly growing services sector is creating huge potential for facility management. The market is gradually maturing to be at par with global standards. It is perhaps the most conducive time to strengthen the FM business in the country,” says Ram.
