In its search to bolster its management team, HappyDesk sought a candidate who could immediately build on the company’s leading position in the shared space category and accelerate its fast-growing business.

“Dorthy is a true innovator, outstanding leader and possesses a deep knowledge of real estate, as well as the shared space industry,” said Dale Hersowitz, Co-Founder, HappyDesk.  “Her experience makes her an exceptional fit for this role.  We are thrilled that Dorthy is leading our HappyMovement.”

Bright has sustained business success with a career that spans more than 20 years and has its roots in commercial real estate.  She quickly rose through the ranks assuming more responsibility and oversight with each position.

Prior to joining HappyDesk, Bright served as President of Barrister Executive Suites, the third largest operator of executive suites in the U.S. with 26 locations throughout Southern California.  She honed her management skills at CommonWealth Partners as Vice President of Asset Management managing a $1billion fund.

“I am excited to be a part of a dynamic team and to deliver a product that is without question transforming the way shared spaces are accessed and sold,” noted Bright.

When not leading the charge in the shared space category you can find Dorthy, cooking up a gourmet meal, spiking a volleyball or walking leisurely with her beloved beagle, Winston.  She resides in Los Angeles and is a graduate of Claremont McKenna College.

With more people and businesses embracing the sharing economy, the co-founders of HappyDesk, who have decades of experience in the shared space industry, identified a need to take the process of searching and reserving space one step further in order to both enable and enhance interaction for both provider and end-user. The company has assembled a roster of experts whose background in technology, commercial real estate and mobile working makes them uniquely positioned to lead the charge for the industry.

“HappyDesk clients include providers that will offer everything from offices to meeting space and from administrative services to event tickets,” explained Dale Hersowitz, HappyDesk’s Co-Founder.   Our software enhances the connection between parties, eliminating the middleman allowing for an easy real-time transaction.”

The Global Workplace Association estimates the shared space industry generated close to $11 billion last year and predicts more growth opportunities ahead.

“Momentum for the industry is strong as organizations – both big and small – allow their staff to work in an environment and location that best suits each individual,” said Hersowitz.

The software includes: white-label e-commerce, CRM, billing, proposal templates and door access technology.  This gives shared space providers of any size the ability to sell anything and connect with anyone on their own website.

Michael Kenny of Co-Merge Workplace in San Diego is among the shared space providers using HappyDesk.

“I like that all of the functionalities we need to operate our business are included in the HappyDesk suite of offerings. Everything is covered and the team is helping us customize the software to accommodate us. It’s not an off-the-shelf product,” said Kenny.

For a limited time, shared space providers can sign up for free.
