What’s going on:
Ben Wright, a flexible workspace industry veteran and former founder of Denver-based Upsuite, has been appointed Executive Director of Partnerships for The Instant Group, a global marketplace for flexible workspace solutions.
Why it matters:
As part of this newly formed role, Wright is responsible for leading the Partnerships team across the Americas. Before joining The Instant Group, he served as Cofounder of SquareFoot’s Flex Location Services Practice and Head of Flexible Office Solutions.
“Flexible work solutions have positively impacted in-person collaboration and culture, minimized commute times, and saved money compared to fixed offices, all while minimizing the complexity of managing real estate,” Wright said.
How it’ll impact the future:
In 2022, Instant’s Partnerships division launched to provide landlords and operators with the tools to access the vast global market for flexible workspace.
As Americas lead, Wright brings to Instant many years of experience in leading sales, customer-facing teams in start-up/growth companies in real estate, SaaS, and digital marketing.
His expertise will help to create solutions for landlords and operators so that they can keep up with the ever-growing demand.
