Workthere will service the entire flexible workspace market in Singapore, including well-known brands such as Servcorp, The Executive Centre, The Work Project, District6, Centennial BusinessSuites, GreenHub Suited Offices, WeWork, Collective Works, The Great Room, JustCo & Just Office, as well as a variety of independent providers.
The new venture by Savills was launched in the UK in February 2017 and, following this success, the firm is now expanding across Europe with Ireland Germany and most recently, in the Netherlands this January, representing Workthere’s first continental European presence.
“Singapore has witnessed considerable growth in the flexible workspace sector, with many new entrants coming to the market. At the same time, demand for flexible workspace continues to grow as more businesses, including startups, SMEs, and even larger corporate companies, are seeing the benefits of flexible workspace over a more traditional lease,” said Cal Lee, founder and global head of Workthere.
The Workthere service in Singapore will be managed by Yann Deschamps, Head of Workthere Asia Pacific, working closely with the local occupier services offerings.
Yann, a 20-year veteran in the commercial sector and formally from Savills Shanghai has moved to Singapore to take on the role and will be managing the development and roll-out of Workthere in the region.
Workthere is an entirely new brokerage service and website listing platform – workthere.com.sg – combining technological experience with personal advice.
