Zurich, Switzerland, New York, USA, 15 July 2022 – Locatee is announcing a number of key changes to its leadership team to fully seize the current opportunity in the accelerating workplace analytics market. With companies across the globe having started to work more flexibly and to roll-out their “return-to-office” strategies, the demand for workplace occupancy data is higher and more strategically important than ever.
Locatee has been pioneering and playing a key role in the workplace transformation the last few years by establishing new, data-driven norms in the management and development of workplace performance. Its workplace analytics platform unifies various technologies and data sources to provide visibility on office usage and occupancy to workplace leaders worldwide. The scale, the depth, the richness of the data generated by Locatee’s solution, allows workplace leaders to better manage their built environment, allocate space judiciously, improve the employee experience and develop a sustainable workplace strategy.
Thomas Kessler has stepped down from his CEO position to focus on his role as a member of the Locatee board of directors providing market insight, expertise and thought leadership in the workplace technology market. Kessler led the creation of Locatee together with Benedikt Köppel, and has guided the company with a sound vision during the last seven years throughout the early stages towards growth.
Benedikt Köppel, co-founder and CTO, and Myriam Locher, who joined Locatee as Chief Revenue Officer earlier this year, step up as co-CEOs of the company. Köppel incorporated Locatee together with Kessler in 2015, and has strongly contributed to leading Locatee to its current leading position in the market. Locher joined after several successful entrepreneurial experiences to bring executive excellence to the company and imprint customer obsession to Locatee’s operations. As co-CEOs, Myriam Locher and Benedikt Köppel combine their product and revenue expertise. They steer Locatee to serve its global customer base following key principles: providing new, innovative technology solutions to cater to a growing demand for workplace solutions, thereby positioning the company to stand out to investors in the proptech market.
“The next stage for Locatee needs heightened focus from the company’s leadership, and together with the board, we decided that Myriam and I should take over executive duties. I am proud to have brought this vision to this stage together with my co-founder, and I am thankful to Thomas for his leadership and friendship along the way.“
“Our solutions are a key ingredient to support corporate leaders in transforming the workplace. I know that Locatee has everything that is required to profoundly change how organizations address their workplace challenges with data. My energy and priority will be on driving excellence in our revenue operations and our customer experience. I am looking forward to having Benedikt, as a highly experienced engineer and entrepreneur, by my side.”
“Building a company that enables places where people love to work has been the most exhilarating experience in my life. I am grateful to everyone that has contributed to building and developing our company. Locatee will continue to realize its ambitions by providing long term customer value and creating a category-leading and innovative solution.“
