Press Release | For Immediate Release

San Francisco, CA – August 6, 2014

PW-faviconPacific Business Centers, the leading provider of on-demand offices in Northern California is changing its name to Pacific Workplaces.

“We redefined ourselves as a Workplace-as-a-Service™ provider several years ago,” said Laurent Dhollande, Pacific Workplaces’ CEO. “This rebranding is a logical step that simply reflects the wide diversity of workplace environments we now support with our On-Demand Workspace model, including not just furnished Office Suites, but also Virtual Offices, Coworking Places, Telecommuting Centers, and Touchdown Space Access worldwide via our affiliation with the CloudTouchdown™ network.”

The company opened its first center 10 years ago in Silicon Valley, and has grown to 16 locations in California and Nevada today. Its mission is to provide members with a fluid workplace infrastructure that matches their needs, wherever they are. This includes:

  • Dedicated, furnished, private offices with on-premise receptionist services
  • Professional conference centers with state-of-the-art meeting rooms
  • Virtual Offices, with part-time offices and corporate identity services
  • Curated communities to help our members mix, network, and support each other
  • Coworking spaces and business lounges that accelerate serendipity
  • Access to touchdown space at 450 locations worldwide via our affiliation with the CloudTouchdown™ network to support mobility

“We make an expensive workspace infrastructure affordable because it is shared by a large number of members,” added Scott Chambers, Pacific Workplaces COO. “They don’t need to invest in anything upfront and they don’t need to make any long term commitment. The PW favicon in our logo stands for On-Demand. We enable carefree officing.”

Clients range from Solopreneurs to Professional Firms and companies of all size that need to establish a branch office or sponsor telework programs for a distributed workforce. Services are delivered under a subscription or a pay-per-use model, tailored to the clients needs.

Dhollande added: “I want to stress that what we do here is not just about the physical workspace. The social and community dimensions are paramount, as is our support of mobility. Pacific Workplaces (

Pac for short) are great places to work, each with its own personality and fun activities. We care about our members, and they care back!”
