“We are honored to host Mayor Nutter at this year’s World Workplace Conference and Expo,” said Jon Seller, IFMA chair. “It’s growing more evident every day that facility management has a key role to play in everything from improving business profitability to making a city like Philadelphia operate efficiently and sustainably. The mayor’s participation is a testament to his vision and to the role facility management will play in helping him attain that vision.”

Sworn in for a second term in January 2012, Michael A. Nutter has set an aggressive agenda for America’s fifth-largest city — improving high school graduation and college attainment rates, vowing to strengthen community policing through Philly Rising, a unique partnership between vulnerable neighborhoods and the city, and continuing to implement the nationally recognized GreenWorks Philadelphia initiative that is helping to make the City of Philadelphia become the greenest city in America. Born in Philadelphia and educated at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Michael Nutter has been committed to public service since his youth in West Philadelphia. He served almost 15 years on the Philadelphia City Council, earning the reputation of a reformer, before his election as mayor of Philadelphia. In June 2013, Mayor Nutter concluded his yearlong tenure as president of the United States Conference of Mayors.
