Overview

"Can Do!" is a motto of the U.S. Navy Seabees that Randall Niznick has continued to live out after transitioning to his civilian career in facility management. Mike Petrusky discovers how Randy's military background and service to others approach have helped him thrive and grow in his career as an FM professional. His role includes creating productive work environments and Randy talks about how he connects with the FM community through involvement at the USGBC, NFMT, and IFMA. Randy offers some online resources to help advance FM careers and he shares his views about the future of the built environment, the growth of data centers and the need for FMs to manage these critical facilities. Finally, Randy shares his passion for helping to build the next generation of facility managers and his belief that military veterans are a great fit for filling the FM knowledge and talent gaps. Mike and Randy also discuss music, playing drums, and they face the question of whether or not "smooth jazz" should be considered "old man music" or not.
