World Sailing President Quanhai Li formally opens new London headquarters
World Sailing, the global governing body for the sport of sailing, has completed the move to its new headquarters in Hammersmith, Central London.
The new premises in Shortlands were formally opened by World Sailing President, Quanhai Li.
Conveniently located within walking distance of Hammersmith tube station, World Sailing’s new headquarters offer a private, bespoke office environment within a shared, fully-serviced complex and an ongoing cost saving of 70% compared to the previous office space in Paddington.
David Graham, World Sailing CEO, said, “We are very pleased to move into our new headquarters. The new surroundings have been renovated to suit our purpose and will allow us to work together again and implement an efficient blend of remote and hybrid working. We will continue to offer that model for staff as we have seen, like businesses around the world, that it is successful and beneficial to our operations.”
He added, “The savings we will make following this move can be invested back into the sport for the benefit of sailors worldwide. This is an opportunity to reform the sport, build for the future and achieve our strategic objectives as an organisation without the financial burdens of the past.”
