Peter Browne to pilot rapid growth of leading distributed work provider
TORONTO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - SuiteWorks Inc., Canada's pioneer in flexible
workplace solutions and professional satellite offices close to metropolitan
centres, is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Browne as its new
President and Chief Executive Officer.
A seasoned business executive, Mr. Browne spent 24 years in key business
and financial leadership positions. As Vice-President of Nortel's Global
Corporate Real Estate and Business Continuity Planning units, he was a pioneer
in the field of distributed work, spearheading Nortel's ground-breaking
distributed work program. Over his four-year tenure as real estate head,
Mr. Browne reduced Nortel's annual real estate costs by $800 million.
"Peter is the kind of leader we need to take our business to the next
level," said John Cameron, co-founder of SuiteWorks. "By bringing in a CEO
with his expertise, we are prepared for the rapid growth of our business and
the expansion of our network of satellite business centres in the GTA and
George Horhota, SuiteWorks' other co-founder added, "Peter has everything
we need in a single package - strategic vision and operational excellence,
senior leadership experience and deep expertise in corporate real estate,
acquisitions, alternative workplace strategies and business continuity
SuiteWorks operates satellite offices that provide turnkey workspaces and
supporting business services that enable employees to connect to corporate
offices without commuting every day. This offers employers significant real
estate savings by reducing the space required in high-rent downtown offices.
In addition, studies prove that flexible distributed work solutions produce
15-20 percent productivity gains for employers and reduced greenhouse gas
emissions into the environment.
"I believe in distributed work," says Mr. Browne. "Work is no longer a
designated building we travel to but an activity we do daily from any number
of locations. Harnessing this rising wave is my personal challenge. Like
anything new entering mainstream thinking, the adoption of distributed work by
corporate Canada will take time, but I have no doubt it will take hold because
of the broad strategic and operational advantages it offers."
SuiteWorks Inc. is Canada's pioneer in distributed work solutions and
consulting services. Since 2003, SuiteWorks has been helping companies
maximize their financial, operational and environmentally "green" objectives
while increasing employee productivity, satisfaction and retention. SuiteWorks
operates professional satellite offices, providing office space, meeting rooms
and a full portfolio of business and support services on an as-needed basis.
