My company is now currently looking for a BIM Manager.  What quality should I be looking for such as what code programing should this person have, such as C++ ..., should he know or understand most of the BIM and CAD software on the street?  Thoughts about standards (company, NCS ... etc.), or creation of families for Arch, Struct and MEP packages.  Hardware and network requirements for running BIM?  Personally I have been in the field for 20+/- years, so I have some idea.  What I am looking for is your experiences, things that are off the beaten track that is a must to have to be a good BIM Leader / Manager

How big is your company?

What Revit products will you be using?

Do you have a current CAD manager?

What kind of IT support will this person have?

This company is over 200 persons with satilite offices in several other states.  We are a multi-discipline firm with Arch, Struct, MEP, Civil and Survey.

As for what Revit programs we have, they are Arch, Struct and MEP.  The Arch and Struct groups are way ahead in knowledge of Revit in comparision to MEP, they just started and the owners are hesitant on training them, where both the Arch and Struct went through formal training. 

Currently we do not have a CAD Manager, though many will say I act the position, helping to solve issues with AutoCAD or writing some LISP.

The IT group here is going through a transition but are a strong IT based group.  Currently my company is looking for a new IT leader, the last one was let go.

I have been charged with interviewing people for the position, and I am attempting to do some homework on the position.  I have researched the position on the web, and am looking for some practical advice and experiences to watch out for.  Any advice would be much apprieciated.

Do you already have a BIM software in use at your firm, or are you going to be acquiring one based on the experiences of your new BIM manager ?

If you have one already I suggest letting the IT group deal with the network requirements and running of the software and focus on finding someone with depth of experience in utilising the software and the intercration of 3D models into said software. If they are a strong IT group as you said it won't be difficult for them to pick it up and your new BIM Manager worry about the operational use, your new IT leader could also be looked for focused on the back end of the BIM under his experiences

I would strongly suggest finding a package suitable for your firm and then finding a manager that bests fits it, this would eliminate finding a 'jack of all trades' to cover your bases or bringing someone in who is very experienced on a package that doesn't quite conform to your specifications.
