SINGAPORE-BASED workplace design and build consultancy Space Matrix has boosted its leadership team with the appointment of Roger Clement as managing director, Singapore and Tan Su-San as director of workplace strategy and insights.

Mr Clement replaces Benjamin Breen, who has been with the company for five years and has moved on to head the international client solutions team.

Mr Clement will report directly to Space Matrix CEO Arsh Chaudhry, and help lead the Singapore office which has about 60 employees.

The new managing director will work closely with the leadership team and the firm’s clients to address challenges in workplace designs and develop workspace solutions for clients.

He previously held directorial roles in real estate services company CBRE and construction services company ISG, working in both commercial and hospitality sectors. He was also senior project manager at Maris Interiors in London, overseeing design and build projects.

Ms Tan's role is new, and is "a direct response to the increasing demand from Space Matrix’s clients who value the co-creation process to develop intelligent, intuitive and conscious design responses that supports their organisational needs", the company said.

She will work directly with and report to Mr Chaudhry, and also work with country managing directors.

She will lead thought leadership efforts in workplace strategy and work closely with Space Matrix's teams and clients to create "sustainable businesses and innovative user experiences".

Ms Tan works directly with the leadership team, advising companies on navigating the future of work and how to improve their businesses through purpose-driven workplace strategies.

She will also work closely with the consultancy's design teams to ensure clients' requirements are "deeply integrated into the design and user experience".

Ms Tan has over 20 years of client consultancy experience and has spent the last 17 years with global workplace architecture and interior design firm, M Moser Associates. She worked with teams across the firm to implement workplace strategies for clients through analysis and evidence-based research.

"The addition of Roger and Su-San to Space Matrix will help strengthen our firm’s leadership team as we continue to grow our global footprint and thought leadership. Their expert knowledge, valuable experiences and global exposure to the design, construction and project management industries make them valuable assets to the team and more importantly to our clients," said Mr Chaudhry.
