Location Key to Good Business – SCMP Features Compliments on The Executive Centre by Urban Land Institute’s Managing Director

Location key to good business Companies seek offices near transit, clients SCMP, Monday, April 22, 2013 - For many business, location is a primary consideration. Location defines the corporate image presented to business partners and clients. It can also make doing business easier if the company is located closer to clients and transport gateways. The Urban Land Institute (ULI), with offices in Washington and London, has had its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong since 2007. The global research and education organisation, which promotes responsible land use and the creation of thriving, sustainable communities, has close to 30,000 members worldwide and more than 1,000 members in the Asia-Pacific, including real-estate industry leaders from the public and private sectors. Last year, the organisation decided to use serviced office to make its operations more effective. “Our original requirement was to be located in an office that is close to many of these different members. Flexibility was also one of our key considerations,” says Brandon Sedloff, managing director, ULI Asia Pacific. “We chose The Executive Centre (TEC), because everything was 'ready to go', and TEC is able to provide us with office space in other parts of the region if we need it.” The company also wanted to be in the heart of the central business district and have good access to transport, so it chose the Nexxus Building in Central. “The building is equipped with the latest technology infrastructure and cutting-edge facilities, and is located close to public transport,” Sedloff says. He says ULI regularly uses all the services offered by TEC, such as secretarial service, a pantry, conference calls, and mailing and couriering service, and the range suits the firm’s needs. It also find the meeting rooms and video-conferencing facilities particularly beneficial, as the company often needs to engage with its members around the region and participate in global discussions. The team enjoys the services offered by TEC. “The service is professional and personalised. The staff are always attentive to detail and they try to help us with our every need”, Sedloff says. Sedloff expects to hire more full-time staff. At present, the space in the office is sufficient for a few more employees, but he says with a larger team he would consider moving to a regular office again. Please click here for the article.
