ShareSpace, a leading office lease platform & marketplace, has opened a new office in Berlin. The move caps an intense period of growth for ShareSpace, which expanded the German team.
ShareSpace entered the German market in 2021, securing cooperation with key partners, including Betahaus, Ahoy!, Design Offices, WeWork, and MindSpace. The objective is to have 100% market coverage in Germany and offer the clients a seamless office lease experience.
The new German office at WeWork Berlin Warschauer Platz expands ShareSpace’s presence to three European locations including Warsaw, Budapest, and Berlin. The move follows the appointment of four members to the team: Real Estate Strategy Manager, Workspace Success Manager, Relationship Manager, and Junior Relationship Manager.
Team expansion in Germany
Hugo Wheatman, who joined ShareSpace as Real Estate Strategy Manager, looks after client acquisition and relationship building. His background is in commercial real estate and his career includes working for JLL across Asia and Australia.
“I am very excited to introduce ShareSpace’s unique product to this new market. Berlin is an extremely vibrant office and coworking scene, with many startups and SMEs looking for their first headquarters,” says Hugo Wheatman.
Martin Kohn has taken on the duties of Workspace Success Manager. Martin studied Business Administration in Cologne and is particularly enthusiastic about the concept of the sharing economy. Martin’s background is mainly in sales.
“It’s great to be a part of such a dynamic company as ShareSpace and to build a position in the German market,” says Martin Kohn. “I believe ShareSpace offers a revolutionary product – a platform to search for an office, sign the contract via a digital signature, and manage the rent,” he adds.
