After 6 years in our current headquarters office, the GB&SMITH Lille team is on the move to bigger, better, and brighter offices early next year. With our team expanding, it’s the perfect time to find offices that will fit everyone more comfortably.

Where You Will Find Us

We may be moving offices but we’re not moving far — just a few steps away from our current location. Nonetheless, our new office space will be a vast change from what we know today. It’s located in a newly-constructed building called the Swam that is steps from two train stations and the city center, and has a lot to offer. From modern offices to outside eating areas to a restaurant with a panoramic view, the new building is a real gem.

We’re looking forward to features like a layout that locates most departments on the same floor, a dedicated lunch area, and most importantly, air-conditioning for use during heatwaves!

A Word From The CEO

The CEO of GB&SMITH, Sébastien Goiffon, recently announced the exciting news to the entire team. Here’s what he had to say:

“These offices are very important to me because they will house the majority of our teams. I want employees to be comfortable and for the new offices to embody company values, which include a culture of caring, team spirit, and an environment that is both professional and fun. Moving to these newer, bigger, more modern, and more welcoming offices will allow us to continue scaling up while attracting and retaining the best talent.”

New Year, New Surroundings

The Lille team will move in early January 2020 and kick-off the new year in a fresh environment. We all look forward to welcoming clients, new hires, and external stakeholders to the new offices. With only a few months to go, the packing boxes will soon appear and it’ll be time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new.
