Serviced Offices Advice Ltd: Executive Management Team

Professional services from the flexible workspace specialists

The executive team at SO Advice offer over 35 years of combined serviced office sector experience and are passionate about fulfilling the needs of both clients and operators alike.

Founding Partners

Serviced Offices Advice was founded in 2012 by industry expert Martin Halling, and James Tatham.

Having both previously worked for Regus, the global market industry leader at this time, they bring their expert knowledge and best practice of the industry and apply this on a consultative and impartial basis to new and existing clients.

They work very closely with a multitude of businesses, corporate clients, and serviced office operators – managing their local and global serviced office needs and applying their combined industry experience and extensive knowledge to the flexible workspace market.

To date there are very few people offering this specialised advice or those who have the necessary experience and expertise to do so on a truly impartial basis. Our bespoke hands-on approach and range of services tailored to our clients’ unique needs aims to capitalise on this shortfall in the serviced office market place.
