Evans Easyspace, the UK’s leading provider of new and managed workspaces, has announced the appointment of Tim Frith as Business Development Manager, as part of new plans to raise awareness of the company’s expertise in handling management contracts on behalf of third parties.
With 15 years’ experience in the commercial property market, Tim is particularly well placed to drive this new initiative and will be seeking out opportunities to work with both the public and private sector on a management contract basis.
These plans are announced on the back of a record number of new business enquiries for Evans Easyspace in March 2010 and an increase in net take-up in existing centres, proving the current demand in the market for products and services offered by the company.
The new service is seen as a real departure for the company, as up until now Evans Easyspace has developed and owned all of the properties in its network. By offering to manage space for others, the company is now seeking to accelerate the growth of the brand, while further enhancing its reputation in the marketplace.
Tim says: “This is a very exciting opportunity for property owners, and in some cases occupiers, to benefit from the expertise and market profile Evans Easyspace can offer. We will take on the day to day operational management of a centre and through our solid, efficient and proven business model, will help minimise costs and maximise occupancy, income and value.”
Since its formation in February 2000, Evans Easyspace has built a network of 54 business centres throughout the UK, with more in the pipeline due to demand for affordable, flexible office and workshop space across the country. The company is also famed for outstanding customer service, with an offering tailored specifically to the needs of UK SMEs and business start ups.
“Evans Easyspace lets property the way small businesses want to occupy it i.e. on easy in, easy out terms, with either party being able to give two months’ notice at any time,” continues Tim. “Evans Easyspace uses a short, simple in-house licence agreement, which has been awarded the Crystal Mark from the Plain English Society, and can offer a range of service levels and support.”
