Mr. Glenn Reed who has been with OFFICE 1 since 1996, most recently as VP Operations worldwide, has wrapped things in the US to join OFFICE 1 Indonesia as General Manager reporting to Prabowo Widya Krisnadi, President Director of the Kawan Lama Group, a publicly held company and OFFICE 1 master franchisee.
Additionally Mr. Reed will be counseling and guiding in the building of a state of the arts Logistics Center in Jakarta to reflect the greatly expanded and ambitious plans of Kawan Lama in B to B and Ecommerce.
This is not the first time that Glenn has packed his bags and picked up assignments away from headquarters. He was the GM of OFFICE 1 Italy from 2003 to 2007 and thereafter head of OFFICE 1 China in 2007-2008.
During all his years of service, Mr. Reed has always been in the thick of battle where the stakes were highest and utmost gallantry and hard work were required. His move to Jakarta is a reflection of the growing importance of this populous and fast growing country and the great potential it holds for OFFICE 1 International.
“I have been proud and happy to be associated with Glenn all these years and am grateful to him for the numberless stores he launched in his long, loyal and productive career. May he continue to do great things and never lose his lust for adventure!” – said Mr. Mark Baccash, CEO of OFFICE 1 Superstores International Inc.
