Simon Eastlake - Development Director

After my degree at Loughborough and a brief foray into the recruitment industry, I joined City Executive Centres run by Niki and Giles Fuchs in 2001. At City Executive Centres I was involved in sales and centre management of a new centre in Brighton. City Executive Centres was a pioneering company in the serviced office industry within the UK. When this business was sold to MWB, I moved with them and had roles as an Area Manager and Senior Sales Manager in London.

After leaving MWB, I set up a new serviced office business called the Serviced Office Company for an investor and opened two buildings in London and Manchester, although opening at a challenging economic period was very successful.

In 2012, I was approached by Giles and Niki Fuchs to join them again in their new venture, Office Space in Town, which they had started in 2009. They had 2 centres at this point and were actively looking to expand.

My role was originally to open the new buildings. I got involved after Giles has acquired the buildings. I am partly responsible for the design and build process, following on with the initial set up of the new centre, recruitment and most importantly, the pre- and post-opening sales. So far, I have opened 3 buildings and am hoping to open another 2/3 buildings a year within the capital. Office Space in Town is growing month on month and now has 6 successful London-based centres. I am now responsible for sourcing new location in my role as Developments Director.

With 14 years experience in the industry at all levels from sales to Director, I am well placed to deliver the level of service that we strive for at Office Space in Town.

I am a Cornishman who after living in Brighton for 15 years, recently moved to London. The commute is now a lot quicker, although I do get back to Cornwall as often as I can. I am a keen rugby player and also enjoy bodyboarding, whenever I can get back to Cornwall!
