Susie Algard appoints Mark Ashida as new CEO of OfficeSpace.com

[SEATTLE, WA – Feb, 27th 2018 ] – OfficeSpace.com, the leading commercial real estate listing service that connects tenants and brokers, has announced that technology industry veteran Mark Ashida has joined the company as its new Chief Executive Officer, replacing founder Susie Algard. As CEO, Ashida will lead strategy, revenue and growth for the company. Algard will continue as Chair of the Board of Directors of OfficeSpace.com.

“I am excited to announce that Mark Ashida will be taking over the role of CEO at OfficeSpace.com. Mark brings with him a wealth of experience ranging from starting companies from the ground up to stepping in to accelerate growth,” said Algard. “His deep roots in technology and thoughtful leadership style will be a huge asset for both OfficeSpace.com and the commercial real estate industry-at-large. I look forward to working closely with him in the future.”

Ashida is a 25-year technology veteran who has held CEO and COO roles at several prominent startups and serves on the board of numerous Pacific Northwest companies. He has proven experience scaling startups to fast-growing and successful businesses, serving as CEO and COO at InterTrust Corporation (sold to Sony and Philips for $450 million) and as a General Manager at Microsoft.  He has also served as CEO for numerous startups in Silicon Valley. Prior to joining OfficeSpace.com, Ashida served as CEO at Digital Fortress, where he recently led the company through a successful sales process. He earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and holds a Bachelor of Arts from Pomona College.

“Under Susie Algard’s leadership, the OfficeSpace.com team has built a revolutionary platform that better facilitates the necessary relationship between brokers and tenants,” said Ashida. “I believe that there are many future prospects for the commercial real estate market that remain untapped, especially as brokers and tenants continue to move towards internet platforms as their operating dashboard to list and find office space. I am very excited about the opportunity to lead OfficeSpace.com into its next phase of growth.”

Founder Susie Algard purchased the OfficeSpace.com domain in 2010 and re-launched the website in 2012, focusing on the commercial real estate needs of tenants. Since then, OfficeSpace.com has become one of the fastest growing commercial real estate listing services of its kind. In a traditionally opaque industry, OfficeSpace.com’s open search platform and the success the company has had with establishing syndication partnerships with top brokerage firms has helped lead the charge in providing greater accessibility to commercial real estate data for tenants.

OfficeSpace.com knows a change in commercial real estate technology is coming— in fact, they’ve known and are readying to launch their free broker and landlord-to-tenant service in its second market.

After its successful beta launch reaching 24,000 tenants, connecting 350 tenants to brokers and landlords and covering 186 million square feet of space in Portland, Ore. OfficeSpace.com officially launches its new service, starting with Denver, Colo. on June 13.

“As an entrepreneur, finding the right space was always more difficult that I anticipated,” CEO and Founder Susie Algard said.  “The system of waiting for someone to call you back just to give you the space details or rate information is highly inefficient.  All of the tools were focused on people who were familiar with commercial real estate, not for people who only need to find space once every few years.”

In Denver, OfficeSpace.com currently covers over 172 million square feet of space and over 3,000 buildings available for tenants to search.

The days of expensive broker-to-broker subscription services are behind.

“By providing open access to details on an office space, we are helping all business owners during their research phase,” Algard said. “In particular, we are serving an audience whose needs are currently not sufficiently met – small business owners.  It’s difficult for brokers to make small requirements profitable, but we have created tools to help them directly with that.  We connect qualified tenants to brokers for free.”

OfficeSpace.com’s website offers free viewings and listings and social media tools for sharing. The company most recently launched a free Broker Tools suite for brokers to create flyers, surveys and communicate with tenants.  It also features photo-friendly interface and information on the confusing aspects of a lease for tenants.

About OfficeSpace.com

OfficeSpace.com is a start up with the goal of creating an efficient marketplace connecting tenants with landlords and brokers.  The company, purchased by Internet entrepreneurs Susie and Alex Algard, launched it’s new beta service launched in Portland in January 2012 and to date, has serviced over 350 tenants looking for space.  OfficeSpace.com also operates one of the leading commercial real estate marketing and analytics services in Seattle, Spokane, Denver, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus and can be found at www.officespace.com.
