Geraint was part of a team that started a serviced office company in 1999 which went on to merge with MWB, before he again was part of a team who set up Avanta (Mark II) in 2004. Avanta went on to achieve a turnover in excess of £75m before eventually being bought by Regus in 2015. Prior to being involved in the serviced office sector, Geraint spent a number of years working for Bupa, British Airways and Marks and Spencer.
Michael sits on the board of Flexioffices and is involved in strategic decisions driving the growth and development of the company. He has been with Flexioffices since 2004 and held a number of positions in sales and management during his tenure, improving internal processes and mentoring personnel towards excellence. Whilst it could be said he is now part of the furniture, his belief in the key philosophy of the company does not waver: “We are here to help the client find the right office solution – not through a tough sales pitch, but active consultancy”.
Emma has been with Flexioffices since March 2008 bringing with her a wealth of experience in database maintenance and customer care from her previous employment. She enjoys a varied role within the company, maintaining the client database, updating the website and assisting the accounts department. Outside of work Emma enjoys listening to music and attending festivals, eating out and socialising with her friends.
Andrew has worked in the serviced office industry for the past 25 years; as a client, with operators and as a broker. He brings with him international senior level experience with a hands-on mentality in the areas of management, sales, organization and development. At Regus Andrew helped develop various countries in Europe. At MWB as General Manager for the European continent built the organisation from scratch to a 70 person team, was Corporate Account Manager for a global client of KPN Telecom, orchestrated a merger with a Tier 1 pharmaceutical company, and for the last 3 years has developed Asia-Pac for a Dutch broker. Coffee, surfing, golf and kiting are some of his passions, but most important of all are his wife and three children.
Jan was part of the team that brought a European serviced office broker to Asia Pacific and launched their services in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and China. After four years of growth, the company merged with a bigger broker and Jan was up for a new pioneering challenge, which led him to join Flexioffices, which was about to enter the Asia Pacific market themselves.
Jan brings corporate and start up experience in the areas of management, sales, business development and marketing and has a thorough understanding of and experience in developing business in the Asia Pacific region. Prior to his role in the serviced office industry he worked as a business coach and accelerator for several start ups in Australia. Before that, he founded and ran an IT consultancy firm in Europe which was acquired by a global IT company. Jan started his career at Hewlett-Packard Europe as business manager.
He enjoys spending time with his family (his wife and two daughters), reads avidly, enjoys playing music (guitar) and tennis (but never at the same time) and enjoys life in general.
