Zoe Ellis-Moore - Founder and CEO
Zoe founded Spaces to Places in 2019, keen to disrupt and transform the way commercial property is used. With the root of an idea – that changes in the way we work necessitated a shift in the market – she established a framework that helps building owners, office operators, asset managers, and property investors turn their spaces into more relevant places.
Over the course of more than 18 years in the property industry, Zoe has worked with high-profile clients including Derwent London, LandSec, and Savills. She applies her broad experience in the market as the CEO of Spaces To Places, taking the lead on all projects to transform office brands, rejuvenate the value they bring to occupiers, and create commercial spaces that work better.

Juliane Brandt - Graphic Designer
Juliane is an accomplished graphic designer with a 15-year career under her belt. Her work in graphic design started in the commercial property industry, but she’s since worked on projects across a range of sectors including retail, lifestyle, and leisure. That broad experience makes her an expert in interpreting diverse briefs and delivering work that meets stakeholder needs.
The design work that she’s carried out has helped clients like JLL, Fawcett Mead, and BC Retail acquire, sell, and lease commercial space. With a remit spanning online and offline channels, she’s able to communicate brand values, value propositions, and bright ideas in whatever way best suits the audience.
Mark Birchall - Copywriter
Mark is a copywriter with broader marketing experience rounding out his skillset. He’s led copy and content departments both client- and agency-side, working with businesses small and large on brand copy, content strategy, and SEO. The broad experience that he’s acquired as part of agency life makes him an adaptable writer and flexible strategist.
His work is able to de-mystify and simplify complicated topics, delivering information in a form and style that suits the audience – whether that’s customers, stakeholders, or search engines. That skill transfers well to the flexible office sector, where he’s worked on projects including rebrands, website builds, customer-facing communications, and SEO campaigns.
