RALEIGH, N.C – FMI Corp. has announced it will integrate Advanced Management Institute, a Napa, Calif.-based firm offering leadership development, training and consulting services to architecture and engineering, into its organization. This new capability will allow FMI and AMI to offer more comprehensive products and services to the A/E/C industry.
Serving the design industry for 19 years, AMI has offered research and informational products and helped firms and individuals develop their leadership, management and business skills that are consistent with what FMI has been providing to the broader construction industry since 1953. AMI has a network of faculty and consultants that provide executive and management development, transition and succession consulting, and project leader training and development.
“The combined forces of AMI and FMI will allow an expansion in depth and capacity of consulting services to our architectural and engineering clients. The construction industry is broad in scope and while we have always considered architects and engineers as part of our core target, they have become even more so with the growth of design/build,” said Hank Harris, president and CEO of FMI.
“We’re pleased to be joining forces with FMI. Together we will powerfully accelerate the quest of design professionals and their firms to serve society with the full and valuable potential of their skills and leadership, thereby creating a built environment that makes America an even better place to live, work and prosper,” said Lou Marines, president of AMI.Additional information is available at 919/785.9236.
