Who's Coming

Michael Benson

I am the CEO of CSBC (Collins Street Business Centre) and ClearEdge Offices – we are the largest independent operator in Melbourne. Our facilities include premium:
– Serviced/ executive offices
– Coworking Spaces
– Managed offices

I have 15 experience in the serviced office and flexible space industry. I was previously a business partner in the 3rd largest independent office provider in Melbourne until its sale to Regus in 2014, where I spent time as a senior member of the Regus Australia local executive. I am also a fortunately qualified chartered accountant which has really helped me in my business dealings.

I love this industry, its dynamic young nature and it’s growth prospects. I have managed over the past year and 1/2 with my business partner to grow our business by over 100 percent whist maintains and strengthening our product offering and occupancy.

Our challenge as an industry is the meet the growing and changing needs of our clients whilst continuing to maintain and grow our profitability.
