Shared offices are a permanent home for some businesses, while others view them as more of a stepping stone to a space of their own. After outgrowing their office at Amata’s 161 N. Clark location, DSML tapped Amata’s in-house brokerage team, Amata Realty Group, to help the firm find and negotiate a lease for a larger space that could better accommodate their growing business. A few weeks later, they found an office just a couple of blocks away, allowing the firm to maintain a presence in Chicago’s central business district. “Amata’s brokers know the Loop market and were helpful in narrowing down our options,” said co-founder and director Myriam Le Cannellier.

Company name: DSML Executive Search
Client since: 2012
What we do: DSML provides executive search services to European companies doing business in the U.S. and Canada. DSML’s clients include international companies that are preparing to break into the U.S. market, as well as businesses that are already here and in search of an executive who can help bridge the cultural gap and serve as the point of contact between a firm’s U.S. office and overseas headquarters.
Why we chose Amata: We were looking for office space in the Loop and did not have much time. Amata had great locations and was not nickeling and diming like some other providers. They even helped with our move so the process was quite smooth.
How Amata’s services have benefitted our business: They have been able to accommodate our evolving needs in a quick and easy way during our use of the service. At some point, as we were growing and needed more space, they suggested it was time to look for our own space, which made sense financially. We worked with their realty service to define our needs, pre-select locations and ultimately find our own space in a few weeks.
