“I am absolutely honored to receive this award from IFMA,” Moctezuma said. “It brings me joy to see our efforts recognized and celebrated at the international level. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated partners at Goodwill for their outstanding recruitment efforts. Additionally, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the IFMA-Houston Chapter and the Professional Development Committee for their support of this important initiative. A special thank you also goes to the UST leadership for affording me the privilege to contribute to the facility management community."
