Global CEO Gareth Hales is delighted to welcome Albert De Plazaola, Global Principal, Strategy, to the Unispace Global Executive Team.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to bring Albert’s strategic experience and visionary perspective to our future-focused business outlook,” says Gareth. “With design represented by Simon Pole, and delivery led by Amro Salem and Ryan Caffyn-Parsons, the addition of strategy will bring Unispace’s Think Create Make methodology to the very heart of our global business.”
Specialising in design strategy, workplace strategy and change management, Albert brings unique perspectives to this global role, having worked with C-Suite leaders across the globe and from a myriad of industries. A Boston College graduate with a master's degree from Georgetown, Albert joined Unispace in late 2015 and is based in our San Francisco studio.
“I’m honoured and very excited to be joining the Global Executive Team” says Albert. “It’s a team of innovative and like-minded leaders who share the same bold vision to change our industry and redefine how we deliver services to our clients. I’m excited by the opportunity to harness our creativity and our collective thinking to imagine something really great for our clients and employees.”
“I am less interested in workplace fashion and trends and more focused on unique approaches that support business needs and enable employees to enjoy their time at work.” he says. “The traditional method of design and delivery is anachronistic. Collaborative technologies, mobile platforms and new organizational structures have transformed entire industries, yet the way the design industry delivers workplace services remained unchanged for years. Unispace set about to change that. I am happy to be a part of the revolution.”
Unispace welcomes Albert’s depth of talent to the Global Executive Team and congratulates him on this exciting new chapter.
