CEO SUITE’s first six months in Kuala Lumpur took in the post-Sept 11 slump, but it was a mere blip compared with opening their centre in Jakarta in mid-1997. They’ve since opened other centres – in KL last year, in Singapore and another one in Jakarta. Based in KL at Menara Maxis, they obviously appeal to the business traveler (roughly 60 percent come from the US, Australia and Europe) but they’re also looking towards local clients intending to set up the business with no lease commitments or capital investments. CEO SUITE at Menara Maxis offers business travelers an expanded business centre concept that comes with fully equipped offices, virtual offices, boardrooms, video teleconferencing and high speed internet lounges. Clients come in with an instant office setup, with a support staff providing personalized answering and executive secretarial service. The office is wired up with broadband Internet access, cable network infra-structure, ISDN (integrated services digital network) and local area network. Clients gain immediate access to a network of professionals to offer business consulting, market research, web development, taxation and accounting, amongst other services. (603)26150000.
