Private bank Donner & Reuschel cooperates with Satellite Office, specialist for flexible workplaces

Hamburg, 13.5.2020 – Donner & Reuschel and Satellite Office jointly set an example in the current situation: Under the umbrella of the private bank, Satellite Office is opening an elegant workspace that, for the first time, is aimed solely at the financial sector. Flexible workstations, individual and team offices, and small conference rooms with state-of-the-art technical equipment are spread over three floors. Marcus Vitt, Spokesman of the Board of Management of Donner & Reuschel: “Through this forward-looking workspace at our bank, the private bank is connecting with young, innovative financial entrepreneurs, industry experts, analysts, tax advisors, economic experts and FinTech innovators. In this way, we are creating space for a forward-looking spirit that we urgently need for the future.”

Both cooperation partners play a central role in the new concept as idea providers: Donner & Reuschel is at home in the financial world, Satellite Office has been the specialist for casual, luxurious, flexible workspaces in Germany and Switzerland for over twenty years. “Both companies are going into the project with their respective strengths and creating something completely new,” said Anita Gödiker, CEO and founder of Satellite Office. Marcus Vitt, Spokesman of the Board of Management of Donner & Reuschel: “At Ballindamm, we are together as two renowned and grown companies under one roof, thus generating synergies, short distances and a strong customer centricity within the financial industry. Together, we look ahead and profitably tap into the topics of tomorrow, because the spirit of innovation is part of the Donner & Reuschel DNA.”

The new financial hub opens up a whole new dimension of networking. “All ventures related to finance should find a common “home office”. The in-depth experience in our offices shows: Satellite Office offers exactly the space that financial experts need. An environment where tranquility and discretion, but also platforms for cultivated exchange among each other can be found,” says Anita Gödiker.

The 800 sqm workspace is located on the upper floors of the historic, core-renovated building directly at Ballindamm 27 and includes 60 workstations, offices and conference rooms. A fireside lounge for confidential meetings has also been created. The interior design is refined, minimalist and very exclusive, in keeping with Satellite Office’s new pureSilent line, which is geared towards quiet, concentrated work in a distraction-free environment.

Anita Gödiker: “We have adapted the concept of the Finance Workspace in terms of equipment and services to the new situation. Thus, protective glass walls were installed, the distances were increased everywhere, special hygiene stations were set up. The usage offers have been made much more flexible with 5, 10 and 20 day tickets. A novelty is that there is no contract obligation and the tickets can also be used by companies. The offer also applies to the second Hamburg location on Neuer Wall.”
