Pareto FM Partners with Women's Coworking Network
The Wing has selected Pareto FM to provide total facilities management (TFM) services at its new UK headquarters building in Great Portland Street, London.
The network of coworking and community spaces for women which was founded in 2016 opened its ninth location - and first outside the Americas (where current locations include New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and Toronto), in a five-storey townhouse at 14-16 Great Portland Street in London's fashionable Fitzrovia neighbourhood.
The Wing's membership of over 10,000 spans almost every age, profession and background, and is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most potent and influential women’s networks by creating spaces where members can meet, work, create, learn and join forces. The Wing believes the most powerful way to advance women is to gather them together. The London opening was featured by Vogue Magazine, Time Magazine and Elle.
Discussing the contract award, Nora Cady, New Space Openings Coordinator for the global network, said:
"Opening our first UK location is a significant step for The Wing in rolling out our brand on a truly global scale. We’re delighted to have secured a central London location and are excited to build The Wing community in the heart of London focused on creating a community that progresses the advancement of women.
"We needed to find a partner that could deliver to our unique requirements and match our ethos. In Pareto we found an awesome culture and leadership team that helped us to bring our vision to life. Pareto offered a model that totally was in tune with our vision for service excellence."
Andrew Hulbert, Pareto FM managing director, added:
"When we heard The Wing was coming to the UK we knew we wanted to be a part of their service delivery team. We’ve admired their business and vision from afar and are so excited, thrilled and privileged to be working with them to set up their new London home. We’ve always put great emphasis on positively promoting diversity and inclusion within our teams, especially in relation to women in FM, therefore the chance to build an entirely female workforce across security, engineering, cleaning and account management is a truly exciting challenge."
