Building Engines Names New Head of Research


 Building Engines, a leading provider of web and mobile property management software to the commercial real estate (CRE) industry, today introduced Phil Mobley as its new head of research. This new position will help Building Engines clients realize even greater value from the company’s software platform through enhanced benchmarking and analysis of operational and tenant sentiment data.

“Phil’s extensive background in primary research will help us serve our clients by offering them more insight into operational performance and tenant engagement at their properties,” noted Scott Sidman, senior vice president at Building Engines. “We are thrilled to have someone of Phil’s caliber on our team—as are many of our clients who already know his work.”

Prior to his appointment at Building Engines, Mobley served as vice president at Kingsley Associates, best known as a provider of tenant satisfaction surveys. While there, he led hundreds of client engagements and several industry-wide benchmarking initiatives, in the process becoming one of CRE’s leading voices on tenant satisfaction and engagement. More recently, he founded Koine Communications, a research and content strategy firm serving the industry. In this capacity he has investigated and reported on such salient topics as staffing efficiency, adaptive re-use and the rapidly changing workplace. His latest white paper, “Decoding Densification,” was released in January as the culmination of his work with a BOMA International task force studying the shrinking ratio of square footage to workers at office buildings. Mobley’s career also includes a benchmark advisory role at Deloitte Consulting and market research analysis at a Fortune 100 consumer products company.

“Building Engines is a great fit, and I’m elated to be joining their team,” said Mobley. “They have tremendous market penetration and have always had a reputation for innovation in the CRE space. Building a robust research capability demonstrates their continued commitment to thought leadership in the industry.”

In his new role, Mobley will lead Building Engines’ efforts to deliver insights that have not previously been available to CRE professionals. This will serve to further differentiate Building Engines in the property management software marketplace. Clients can look forward to hearing more in the coming weeks. “The workplace—and, by extension, the entire CRE industry—is changing fast,” Sidman said. “Building owners and managers that remain tied to the status quo risk being left behind. We believe this expansion of our service will help our clients keep pace.”
