One Minute With Kevin Hermann

One Minute With Kevin Hermann

RFMP, Senior Manager, Facilities Maintenance, The Fresh Market

16 years Facilities Experience

“I plan to stay in the FM field for the foreseeable future. I enjoy developing people and processes to support our operations partners. Every day is fun and exciting as the team solves issues and continues to increase their knowledge.”

Thoughts on the restaurant retail trend?

“Today’s guests want more experiences and to be able to do more tasks in one place. Our mission at The Fresh Market is to inspire our guests to make everyday eating extraordinary.”

Benefits of being a Connex member?

“Connex is a great resource for learning information about the facilities industry and about specific discipline areas. The best tool is the Connex Community. You type in a question, and experts from around the Connex world respond with information and advice to help.”

Advice for someone starting out?

“Learn as much as you can as quickly as you can. Take advantage of peers and suppliers to increase your knowledge base. If you do not know what you are looking at or how to make a repair decision, it can be very stressful. Lean on others to help you as you learn and grow.”

A Typical Day

“I base my priorities on our work order system based upon what is critical for our operations partners. Helping [them] solve their maintenance needs so that our guests receive the best shopping experience possible is our goal every day.” print
