FIABCI Rendez-vous #1: Erik Ubels

FIABCI is pleased to announce the launch of a new project - FIABCI Rendez-vous – consisting of a series of interviews with real estate experts from different backgrounds on different topics concerning the industry. Each episode will be released monthly (on the last Thursday of the month) on the FIABCI YouTube channel.

FIABCI Rendez-vous #1: Smart Buildings and the case story of The Edge building in Amsterdam

Erik Ubels, the visionary behind the smartest and most sustainable building in the world, is the guest speaker of the first FIABCI Rendez-vous episode. Currently the owner and senior consultant at MetisReal/Ubels BV, Mr. Ubels began his professional life at Royal Philips Electronics as an Electronics Product Engineer. While studying computer science he moved on to KPMG and later continued his career at Deloitte, where he was part of the team responsible for the first Global Digital Audit System. Having demonstrated solid strategic vision and planning skills, Erik Ubels took on the role of Chief Information Officer for IT and Facility Management Operations at Deloitte and closely collaborated with OVG Real Estate on the development of The Edge in Amsterdam. After decades of acting as an executive driver in promoting technology utilization at Deloitte, Mr. Ubels moved on to OVG Real Estate as Chief Technology Officer in January 2016. From then until October 2020, he drove innovation and application of technology in the widest imaginable context, including the development of the cloud-based platform for EDGE Technologies.
