incspaces, which provides serviced office space in Manchester, Leeds and London, has appointed Laura Shields as sales director and member of the firm’s executive leadership team.
With the launch last month of an 11,500 sq ft flexspace development on Princess Street in Manchester, the business has plans to grow its eight-site portfolio to 24 flexible serviced office space schemes by 2022.
incspaces commercial director Andrew Butler said: “Flexible office space is in demand like never before as the seismic changes to the UK and global economies inevitably take effect on the way that people now need, and want, to work.
“We’re striving to ensure we can be part of the solution by providing increased amounts of flexible, modern, serviced workspace that meets the needs of both organisations and individuals, and we’re really pleased to welcome Laura on board as part of our growth plans.”
Ms Shields, who has a decade of experience in the serviced office industry, said: “My career so far in office space has been all about meeting clients’ needs rather than selling off-the-shelf solutions, which chimes with incspaces’ own ethos.
“The need for high quality flexible space is urgent right now and I’m excited to join a team that has the enthusiasm and ambition to make a real difference.”
incspaces is making free-of-charge desk space available at its new Manchester development on Princess Street to people who have been furloughed or made redundant, as well as to start-up businesses.
