MakeOffices Taps Industry Leader Jeffrey V. Langdon as their New Chief Executive Officer
With a plan to focus on satisfying emerging demand from asset owners and enterprise customers
Washington D.C. – April 29, 2019 – Current CEO of MakeOffices, Zach Wade, steps aside to bring in Jeffrey V. Langdon as their new Chief Executive Officer to lead their 500,000 square-foot coworking operation into the future. Josh White, who joined MakeOffices a year ago, will also be promoted to Chief Operating Officer.
Langdon will continue the evolution of MakeOffices 15-location portfolio located in Chicago, Philadelphia, and the greater Washington D.C. markets. In addition to developing new services for existing customers, the company roadmap will include the development of occupancy products and services for the enterprise user and contemporary asset owner.
“We are thrilled to bring Jeffrey Langdon on to take MakeOffices to the next level,” stated former CEO, Zach Wade. “Having come from an asset investment, leasing, and operational background, I understand the shifting needs of businesses and the limitations of ownership to solve for these challenges. Flexible office solutions are even more important due to recent events, and Jeffrey’s leadership in these areas is well-proven.”
Langdon has advised some of the largest public and private institutional owners, as well as coworking and workplace-as-a-service companies, to facilitate their continued success in changing marketplaces.
Langdon’s executive experience spans launching start-ups through leading successful operational turnarounds. Prior to joining the company, he founded Adaptive Office Resources (AOR) in 2013, a management consulting firm. Langdon has most recently worked with San Diego-based CommonGrounds Workplace in leading its platform expansion, TechSpace on its divestiture, MindSpace on its entry to the U.S. market, and CBRE/Hana on its go-to-market strategy. He has also personally worked with Equiem(Aus.), Onex(U.K), GPT (AUS), LiquidSpace, Parkway Properties, Cousins Properties, EQ/Blackstone, Gemini Rosemont, and CBRE.
“MakeOffices is positioned well with an established footprint in three strong U.S. markets,” said Jeffrey V. Langdon, the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. “By working more collaboratively with asset owners, we can activate and “productize” an entire building or portfolio, making it more occupier friendly while improving investment yields even in the face of the shifting office demands.”
