As State Manager for Western Australia, Tammy Vladich has an expansive role providing our expert facilities services for the health and aged care, education and commercial sectors plus state and local government.
“I oversee our operational team, financial management for the state, client relationships and new business development for our facilities management, maintenance and commercial cleaning services… anything and everything,” she adds with a laugh.
Tammy came to us about ten years ago after Facilities First acquired the business she was managing, and after an interesting career path.
“My background and qualifications are in organisational psychology. I worked across injury management and program management for disability employment. I then started in a business improvement role, where I ultimately worked my way up to the role of General Manager.”
“One aspect I really enjoy is that I’m working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. I really love having the chance to help people who have come to Australia and are starting out here by giving them the opportunity to build a career.”
“I’ve worked with my team for a long time, some of them ten years,” she adds. “There’s a great sense of teamwork and a lot of support for each other. We’re all working towards the same thing, which is to be successful in everything we do together – for the company, and our customers.”
While Tammy’s childhood ambition to become an actress hasn’t eventuated, she still loves the theatre, reading, dancing… and having fun with her two young sons. Having a laugh is important at work too she believes, and part of building great relationships with her team, and her clients.
“I do love the diversity at work. I could be working with a facility services management customer in the Perth CBD in the morning and be in a recreation centre outside the city in the early afternoon, then at a school.”
“I love building relationships with our clients and there are several I’ve worked with for eight or ten years. Being able to understand our customers on a personal level and build such longevity of partnerships is fantastic.”
