GLG expands Singapore office

GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group), a platform for professional learning, has relocated and expanded its Singapore office. GLG connects thousands of clients to its membership of 500,000 subject-matter experts around the world and across fields for short- and long-term learning engagements.

"Our mission is to transform how the world's top professionals learn and share expertise by creating a variety of one-to-one learning opportunities," said GLG CEO Alexander Saint-Amand. "We are experiencing a rapid rate of expansion of our business in Singapore, among the fastest anywhere in the region. This new office facilitates that growth and helps us accomplish our mission here."

GLG will occupy 6,000 sq ft on the 19th floor of Samsung Hub in Singapore's central business district. The office can accommodate 64 employees.

"Singapore is a crucial hub for us because of its strategic location and its high concentration of industry-leading companies and professionals," said GLG Head of Asia-Pacific and Managing Director Evan Auyang.

"Singapore is an important market for us," added David Anderson, Head of GLG Southeast Asia. "With this new, larger office, we will continue to increase our capacity and focus on providing excellent service to our customers in Singapore, Southeast Asia, and across the Asia-Pacific region."

GLG's new Singapore office features activity-based working, which enhances flexibility by providing different types of private meeting and collaboration spaces, a café, standing tables, and phone booths. The company pioneered this approach with its New York, US office in 2014, and activity-based working is also featured in its Hong Kong hub.

US-headquartered GLG has 1,400 employees in 12 countries. Its Asia Pacific headquarters is in Hong Kong.
