Instant, a global property outsourcing business specialising in the procurement and management of offices on behalf of its clients, has appointed Tim Rodber as CEO. This appointment follows Instant’s success in securing a multi-million pound growth investment from MML Capital Partners in December 2012.
Prior to joining Instant, Tim spent 10 years at global outsourcing firm Williams Lea. He held a variety of senior positions within the business and was most recently CEO of the Americas, based in New York.
Instant’s Chairman Clive Williams said: “We are excited Tim has joined Instant and confident that his local and global expertise within the outsourcing space makes him the right person to lead and continue to grow our highly successful business.’’
“As companies increasingly recognise the efficiencies of outsourcing non-core services, we expect that Instant, and particularly our Managed Office solution, will increasingly be viewed as an attractive route to procuring office space,” he said.
Instant currently manages over 300,000 sq ft for clients across more than 25 Managed Offices in the UK and Europe, as well as continuing to place over 500 companies each month in serviced office space across 102 countries. The company has more than 100 staff in its offices across London, Miami and Sydney and has achieved a 23% compound annual growth rate for the past four years.
Tim Rodber said, “Instant’s management team has achieved huge success to date, building a strong brand and culture. I look forward to leading Instant through its next phase of growth and am hugely optimistic of the opportunities that lie ahead.”
