About us

The IWG story.

Regus was created over 30 years ago when founder Mark Dixon noticed how local business people in Brussels were regularly conducting meetings around the small tables of local coffee shops.
The idea of offering workspace solutions for the short and long term has become a global success story and the company, known as International Workplace Group plc since 2011, now covers every continent and every time zone across the globe.
about us

Mark Dixon

Founder and CEO, IWG
