Today we are very proud to announce a long-term partnership with leading marketing communications giant, Ogilvy & Mather Group UK. The new deal will see Green & Fortune operate all facilities within Ogilvy’s new corporate headquarters, Sea Containers, on London’s South Bank. The building will commence occupation in the early part of 2016 and Green & Fortune will move in at this time.
The facilities to be operated will include contemporary café facilities, bars, a restaurant, staff dining facilities, private dining room, an amphitheatre and a series of entertaining and event spaces. This move sees Green & Fortune cement ourselves in the area of new developments and delivering both in-house and commercial services in new London buildings.
Commenting on the new partnership, Green & Fortune CEO, John Nugent said:
“Prior to 2008 we saw the development opportunity in Kings Cross and were the first significant food and event operator to move into an area that is now a bustling conurbation. We invested in a long term approach and I am delighted that through a difficult recession, we have not only survived but created and stimulated new markets in an area that was once synonymous with the sins of the past. It is now a thriving business and one that cannot be classified in the normal food service or contract catering world. These skills are what we will bring to Ogilvy & Mather and are what attracted them to us in the first instance. They wanted a newer, fresher operating model, taking a long term approach and a commercial operating approach at its heart.”
Ogilvy & Mather, whose parent company is WPP plc, are currently refurbishing and fitting out over 225,000 sq. ft. of space at the iconic building, Sea Containers, on London’s South Bank. They will bring their many brands and 1,500 of their people together in this building, alongside MEC, another subsidiary of WPP plc.
