According to Martin Groschwald, Co-founder of Konzepthaus, the idea to open a UK office "has always been in our expansion plans, but people are our biggest point of difference, so it had to be done with the right people. Chakil is a perfect match with the Konzepthaus way of doing things, so we are very excited to welcome him to the team".
Chakil Soobratty will head up the UK office and spearhead their global expansion not only in design recruitment but also in digital and consulting (KIC) from there. Servicing their existing client base in the UK and Europe, Chakil and his team will also take the unique Konzepthaus Design approach to US clients.
When asked about his recent appointment, Chakil said that "Konzepthaus has an actual drive and ambition to be singularly at the forefront of innovative design recruitment and consulting. They strive to change the industry and elevate the industry as a whole. lt was this approach that resonated with me and my desire to always challenge my approach to ensure we deliver in the best possible way". "lt couldn’t be timelier, what with the new IR35 legislation, as I see a shift of focus for many designers on international opportunities" he continued. "Our global network and talent pools are one of the best and right now with the growth in EV’s and start-ups in the US, we are keen to support the US market in sourcing some of the world’s best designers to achieve their visions".
The opening of the UK location is a fundamental push forward for Konzepthaus Group and a clear indicator that they are strongly committed to supporting mobility designers everywhere. In Martin’s words, "we will continue to go from strength to strength in the coming months and years while remaining privately owned, delivering a world-class service with the highest flexibility possible".
