Servcorp started in Sydney 35 years ago. It was really an entrepreneurial attempt by our current CEO, who was having trouble finding a small, nice office space in Sydney that could accommodate a startup team. He ended up renting a floor in an office building that he then rented out to other start-ups, thus starting the Servcorp model. Thirty-five years later, Servcorp has spread to 21 countries with 140 locations altogether. In China, we have nine offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Chengdu, and will be opening our 10th location this March. It's going to be our flagship center in Beijing with more than 90 offices.
