Options Opens New Central London Office

Infrastructure

Options, the leading managed service and IT infrastructure provider to the global capital markets industry, has today announced it has opened a new central London office. The move sees the firm consolidate its two existing London offices into one larger premises in the Victoria area of central London. The 5,000 square feet office, situated in Portland House, Victoria, will accommodate growing staff numbers within the firm and have capacity for over 100 employees.

The SW1 office boasts an impressive location with Victoria Street on its doorstep. Crucially, this location will ensure that Options’ engineering, support, account management and sales teams are within close proximity to the vast majority of the firm’s central London clients. The new location will allow for an even more personalised approach to client engagement, further bolstering the highly responsive, 24/7 support model Options is already providing to central London clients. As Options continues to scale globally, the central London office will complement existing office locations in New York, Chicago, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Options CEO and Founder, Nigel Kneafsey, commented, “Options’ support and account management model is unrivalled within managed IT services and the wider financial services sector. Underpinned by high-touch, onsite support, the move to Victoria will further strengthen this core capability. The consolidation of Options’ engineering, account management, support and sales functions to Portland House, and one central London office, will allow us to bring our extremely responsive support function to our clients’ doorstep, ensuring it is readily available, as and when required.”

Richard Hughes, Options Managing Director for Europe, added, “2015 has seen Options add a number of high profile customer acquisitions to our already sizeable portfolio of clients in central London and consequently, we felt the time was right to consolidate our two London offices into one larger office space. The new location in Victoria, which is capable of accommodating over 100 people, will facilitate Options’ hiring and expansion plans, and allow for greater collaboration between teams and across business functions. Additionally, the new location offers a perfect base for our team from a customer engagement perspective – the approach that makes Options so unique.
