Workthere appoints head of French business
Flexible office specialist Workthere has appointed Fabrice Le Roux as Head of Workthere, France, based in its Paris headquarters on Boulevard Haussmann in the centre of the city.
With 20 years of experience in the flexible office sector, Le Roux will be in charge of developing Workthere’s activity in order to meet the growing market needs in terms of flexible and creative workspaces. In his role, he will be working across all Savills France departments, including the regional teams as well as developing close links to other Workthere teams across the globe.
Before joining Savills France, Le Roux was a founding partner at REALERS, a digital office rental platform for companies. He also held the position of Sales Director at WOJO for two years after having worked for almost 16 years as International Key Account Director at REGUS.
The French Workthere offer was launched in 2017 and is closely aligned with the tenant representation team, which is led by Serge Vayer. Both teams will continue to work closely together in order to provide a strengthened and comprehensive offer that meets the new and growing expectations of occupier clients.
"I am looking forward to working with such an experienced professional as Fabrice, who will be able to continue the development of Workthere. His dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit are valuable assets to make it the reference platform, dedicated to coworking, in France," says Serge Vayer, Head of Tenant Representation Savills France.
Ed Bouterse, Head of Workthere Europe, adds: “This is a significant hire for our team in France as we continue to grow our presence across the continent. While the start of this year is likely to be challenging on a global level, we anticipate an increase in activity as we progress through the year.”
