Australian-owned business, Christie Spaces, has signed Magnum & Co to help launch its premium interpretation of the co-working concept in Australia.
The boutique-gallery workspaces create an environment of unparalleled engagement, productivity and community, with the brand set to challenge US-based WeWork in Australia’s growing co-working market. The segment is currently at 36% year-on-year growth in Australia, outpacing London and New York.
Magnum & Co will manage Christie Spaces’ strategic communications as it expands its domestic footprint. Next month, the brand will unveil its sixth world-class co-working ecosystem. Located at 240 Queen Street in Brisbane, the new space will extend the Christie community across the eastern seaboard.
Owner of Christie Spaces, Robert Christie, said: “We exist to service progressive businesses that understand the value of the diversity flourishing in co-working environments. Magnum & Co is the perfect partner for us given they’re renowned for their industry-leading collaborative work. We’ve got some great stories to tell and these are the guys to tell them”.
Magnum & Co Managing Director, Aaron Crowther, said: “Christie Spaces is dedicated to creating authentic business connections as we are at Magnum & Co, so we see real alignment between our brands. We’re thrilled to be working with such a dynamic disruptor in the Australian business community”.
“Magnum & Co is also proud to partner with a brand set on giving back to the community – as is Christie Spaces’ philosophy to support local and international small businesses through a partnership with Opportunity International.”
Christie Spaces’ unique co-working model backs some of the most unfortunate communities around the world as they establish self-sustaining businesses of their own via micro-financing. The business’s belief in social enterprise as a core part of their member culture is a distinctive aspect of their offering.
“We want our co-working members to be forward thinkers, and that means realising how being a part of the Christie Spaces family means they can give back philanthropically as a natural extension of their business and the relationships forged in our spaces,” said Christie.
