Senior hire for The Instant Group

The Instant Group has appointed Gary Allin as Head of Project Delivery for the UK & EMEA, to lead the execution of the firms’ workspace projects for its growing international client base.

Gary joins from ISG in Asia where he held the role of Group Managing Director. During his time there he drove the development and growth of the business from a 35-person team in Malaysia to over 600 employees across Asia and the Middle East.

Gary established and maintained a number of long-term strategic accounts with blue chip companies from various sectors including oil and gas, finance and banking, professional services, technology, and retail.

Lyndsay Hardwick, COO, UK & EMEA said: “The Instant Group continues to grow at a considerable pace, with a number of new locations set to open in 2019. Gary will lead Instant’s fit out and project delivery team across the UK & EMEA, ensuring that we continue to deliver exceptional workspaces for our clients.

“Our clients want innovative, tailored solutions that help them attract and engage their employees and drive agility and productivity. Gary’s appointment will strengthen and enhance Instant’s ability to do this.”

Instant has grown by 30% year on year for the past three years, with its portfolio of Managed Offices increasing to locations in Germany, Israel, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, The Netherlands, Malaysia, the US, and Turkey during this time. The Managed Office solution offers clients an agile, low-risk route to market with procurement of the space, design and operations all outsourced to Instant.

Gary Allin will be based in London and commented: “Having grown one successful business in Asia, Instant offered an enticing challenge to offer my experience to another fast-growth company that is challenging the industry status quo. I am looking forward to working on a top-class client list and developing Instant’s proposition to the global market.”
