Today we celebrated the official opening of our brand new EMEA headquarters in Southampton, as well as new offices across London, Nice (France) and the anniversary of our Portsmouth data center.
The day kicked off with the Mayor of Southampton cutting a ribbon and setting sail to our new office by smashing a bottle of champagne on the outside wall – synchronized with the London, Portsmouth and Nice offices, who were also celebrating in style.
Our new office sails on the pier in Southampton, etching a link between our global networks and providing a sophisticated, stimulating and fun workplace for peers and local businesses alike.
While ribbons were being cut, cupcakes being decorated, competitions, pool, indoor golf and video blogs being filmed…I got the change to share my views on the new headquarters and EMEA offices, what this means for PEER 1 Hosting and a little insight into the future of this great company.
We also welcomed global CEO Fabio Banducci to the office, who shared his insight into how companies like PEER 1 Hosting are harnessing the power of its staff to create a human experience on the web.
Our new HQ office features an indoor golf course, BBQ deck, indoor slide, hot-desk start-up incubating spaces, boardrooms, offices, entertainment facilities all named after different ships. The other EMEA offices haven’t been left out however – as these all have their own mini golf courses and fully-stocked bars to keep the teams happy.
