Noelle Faille, CRFP
Facilities Manager, Texas Division
What year did you join RFMA? 2011, I was new to the field and the RFMA Conference was a way to increase my knowledge and develop contacts.
What groups are you involved in with RFMA? Board of Directors, Member Engagement
What do you like most about RFMA? The comradery of the Facilities professionals and the chance to source talented vendor partners for new opportunities.
Which RFMA Resource do you utilize the most? Picking up the phone and calling the staff. I’ve collaborated with Jeff Dover, found vendors in new areas where we were opening new locations, and most impactful to me was when I called and asked if they had heard of any job openings. I got three leads right off the bat, and quickly found my home with Olive Garden.
What’s your hometown? I’m from Charlotte, NC, but moved all over the southeast states until I moved to Texas almost 10 years ago.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Signing up for a half-marathon and finishing it. It was my 30th birthday and I made a lifestyle change then and there. I’ve done 7 more since.
If you weren’t in the Facilities Industry, what would you be doing? I would be a college business professor and a paid speaker.
Who is your favorite sports team? Carolina Panthers – Keep Pounding!
What is your favorite place in the world? The US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. They are the home to the world’s largest man-made recirculating whitewater river, with rock climbing, mountain bike trails and zip lines. And a deck where you can have a cold beer afterward.
What’s your favorite type of food? Tapas and wine.
What is your favorite book? Pillars of the Earth – Ken Follett
What is your favorite song? “This Girl is on Fire” by Alicia Keys
Do you have a secret talent and if so, what is it? Give me some toothpicks, limes, a lighter, and I’ll do all kinds of bar tricks from my college days working behind the bar at Outback Steakhouse.
Who knows you the best? My wife Addie. She has to remind me who I am sometimes, and I love her for that.
