Ex founder and Director of Impact Hub Birmingham, Dan Zastawny joins Blueprint having spent the last five years managing a 6000 sq. ft collaborative work and events space.

Part of the work at Impact Hub Birmingham was overseeing the growth and development of a collaborative workspace and engaged network, and I hope to bring these experiences in to the role.”
Commenting, Andrew Hobson, Head of Business Developments said: “We are delighted that such a well-connected and influential figurehead has joined the company. Dan will be on the ground developing our presence in the West Midlands and ensuring we are best placed to win commercial office fit-out or refurbishment projects. We have recently joined a number of networking groups we have previously not attended in order to help Dan further expand his network.”
