Plans to Transition to the Forum to FMI are Underway
RALEIGH, N.C. (November 21, 2011) – FMI, the largest provider of management consulting and investment banking to the engineering and construction industry, announces today that the firm has entered into agreement with Alan Farkas to produce the Farkas Berkowitz Forum. The 18th annual CEO Forum, to be held in Washington, D.C. in May of 2012, will be presented jointly by Farkas Berkowitz & Company (www.farkasberkowitz.com) and FMI.
“I’ve spoken to many engineering and construction firm CEOs over the last two weeks, and I must say FMI enjoys an enviable reputation for quality and integrity,” says Farkas, principle with Farkas Berkowitz & Company. “We are proud to partner with them.”
Annually, one hundred CEOs from leading architectural, engineering, construction and operational services firms convene with the consulting team of Farkas Berkowitz to assess the outlook for the U.S. economy, as well as the infrastructure, environmental and facilities markets. This one-day event incorporates CEO roundtables, open discussions and guest speakers. Past speakers have included Jim VandeHei, co-founder and executive editor of Politico.
“Not only should the partnership be more effective in attracting construction industry CEOs, but FMI’s many international clients should enable us to add a global dimension to the conference,” adds Farkas.
The two firms have agreed to continue limiting attendance to 100 CEOs.
“We are proud to be associated with Alan and delighted to continue this prestigious industry event,” says Lee Smither, FMI managing director.
