Our highlights in 2019
Looking back on 2019, we explore some of the year’s highlights and achievements from across the global business.
Expanding our global reach
On the firm’s successful entry into new markets, Group Managing Director, John Sellery commented, “Global clients have continued to drive our growth around the world with the opening of offices in Vancouver, Manila, Sydney, Melbourne, Amsterdam and Hyderabad this year.”
Nabil Sabet: We’re thrilled to complement our San Francisco and New York teams as we expand our presence in North America and bring our mission of workplace evolution to Vancouver - one of the most exciting business frontiers in the world. Vancouver is a hub of innovation, aspiration and creativity just waiting to be unlocked.
