London and New York were the first two JP Reis locations. As Brexit negotiations continue, both remain central to our plans.
Our new Dublin office leaves us with a presence in the EU but we remain active in London and our office there continues to show very healthy growth. As a leader in the Information Technology industry, we have fully virtualized our infrastructure and all of our staff are now fully mobile and can work from any location. Our requirements for physical space in the city have lessened and so, later in 2017 we will leave our Ibex House location for new premises in The City. We have also restructured our organization in order to provide the best service to clients and to support new team members. This is especially important as our innovative telecom migration and integrated workspace design services start to gain traction.
Matt Wake has been promoted to Global Operations Director. This role is based in our London HQ. Jo-Ann Sartorius has been promoted to Operations Director for the Americas to assist Matt. Matt and Jo-Ann are experienced consultants and project managers and are focused on assuring rigor, control and efficiency across the board on areas such as stakeholder engagement, project delivery, compliance and general administration. We congratulate Matt and Jo-Ann on their new appointments and look forward to the positive impact that we know they will make.
Meanwhile, Robin Collins is a new arrival at the London office where he will work as an Account Executive alongside our Business Development Executive, Kevin Godlieb. The UK sales team will work closely with our US-based sales team headed by Samantha Sperber, Global Commercial Manager.
In a year where London faces many evolving challenges we want to emphasize our commitment to The City. Look out for further news of our London activity later in the year.
