Following on from OfficingToday’s report on Search Office Space’s global expansion plans, the UK’s first office consultancy now targets Asia’s office market with a new headquarters in Hong Kong.
As part of its continued global expansion and to meet sustained demand for serviced office space on an international scale, Search Office Space has launched its inaugural Asia Pacific headquarters, aimed at representing its free consultancy service within the region.
Based in Central, Hong Kong, the world leading financial district home to some of the most expensive office destinations in the world, its Asia Pacific headquarters aims to position the company within the heart of the market, which has been exhibiting strong consecutive growth on a year-on-year basis.
The move heralds a new chapter for the UK’s first serviced office consultancy, facilitating global office representation of the brand, which now has company residencies within three continents of the world: America, Europe and Asia.
The company, which has worked closely with hundreds of corporates including Standard Life, AIG, Motorola and Groupon, has seen encouraging demand for its services within Asia’s office market, from prospecting international corporates and SMEs looking to expand into its emerging markets.
Headed by Sean Morgan – the newly appointed CEO of Search Office Space Asia – their Hong Kong office neighbours two of the island’s iconic and tallest skyscrapers – Two International Finance Centre and Central Plaza – with Victoria Harbour, the heart and soul of Hong Kong adjacent to the office finder’s new residence.
With over 25 years of commercial property experience under his belt, the new SOS CEO for Asia Pacific has managed an impressive list of large corporate portfolios across the globe, and previously ran operations for 80 locations in Asia Pacific while based in Hong Kong. Speaking in a recent interview, Mr Morgan described returning to Hong Kong to head up the division as an “exciting new challenge,” saying that now is the right time to invest in the Asia Pacific office sector and to push forward with the consultancy’s exposure in the market.
Richard Smith, CEO of Search Office Space, said:
“Asia is one of the strongest and most competitive flexible office markets globally. There are new centres opening there on a weekly basis and we can see the serviced office market continuing to expand.
“While we have always had a presence in Asia and have found office space for many clients throughout APAC, we now feel it is the right time for us to open our own office in Hong Kong, to ensure that we can provide our clients with the perfect local service, without any geographical and time zone constraints.
“With Sean as the CEO of SOS Asia, we feel we have found someone with significant experience in the area, in the market and also as a high level businessman. Sean will be a great asset to SOS and we are confident he will establish SOS Asia as the leading flexible office specialist in the region.”
