Martijn founded Spaces in 2006, together with Rattan Chadha (former CEO Mexx, now CEO CitizenM hotels) and Frederique Keuning (Creative Director). Spaces was built upon the idea that the work environment should be more personal, creative and stimulating. They wanted to build a community of likeminded others; a community of entrepreneurs, SME?s, intrapreneurs and global workers. Drawing on experience and expertise in real estate and services, Roordink is focused entirely on the growth of Spaces, which is currently in the midst of an aggressive expansion.
From January 2019 Spaces has 185 locations worldwide, by the end of 2019 this will be increased by 160 new Spaces.
An entrepreneur at heart, he has also run his own company, EFFIC, an intermediate organizing services for real estate owners and users, since 2004. Based in Amsterdam, Roordink also has a passion for food and wine.
