G’day LA: a new home for the Cotton On Group USA
20th July, 2017
In a move that cements the Cotton On Group’s commitment to its US operations, last month the LA-based team excitedly set up their desks at a new state-of-the-art headquarters in Glendale, California.
The 18,000 square foot space offers 360-degree views of LA. It’s also only a short trip from the Glendale Galleria shopping centre, where the Group’s Cotton On and Cotton On Kids brands are located – keeping the teams in touch with the retail landscape.
Every inch of the office was designed with the Group DNA in mind and each conference room, quiet space and open plan area encourages collaboration, communication, productivity and imagination.
Highlights of the space include a large concept kitchen area called The Common, a nod to the café based at the global headquarters in Geelong, Australia; a 20-seat boardroom and USA-themed meeting rooms; changing rooms and showers to encourage physical activity throughout the day (there’s a gym next door); and quiet spaces designed to allow team members to sit, reflect and relax.
“We took great consideration in designing each space throughout the new office,” said Mark Pan, US Country Manager.
“We wanted the space to reflect the values and culture of the Group and create a productive, collaborative environment which inspires our team.”
The grand opening kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a team breakfast in The Common. Additionally, a ‘housewarming’ celebration took place with team members, partners and their families.
