Moving into a new office space can be exciting and at the same time overwhelming when thinking about everything that needs to be done throughout the process. That’s why SharkNinja hired CPM One Source for their project. SharkNinja is the leading manufacturer of household brands, Shark and Ninja, and provides innovative cleaning solutions and household appliances.
Headquartered in Newton, MA with offices in Montreal, Quebec and various locations throughout China, SharkNinja engaged CPM as an Overall Project Manager (OPM) to oversee and manage the build out and fit-up of a 3,000 sq. ft. space in Irvine, CA which would serve as the West Coast infomercial production office and studio.
“From the first that we were introduced to Irene Lee as our Project Manager from CPM One Source we knew we were on the right track for a successful project. She became a part of our team instantly, making the whole project experience the best that we’ve ever had. From the onset, Irene asked all the right questions to understand our goals and needs and always made sure that they were met throughout the entire process.
We had an extremely tight schedule. CPM did an excellent job at getting the entire office space setup for us for a seamless transition.
I can’t thank CPM One Source enough for all their support and overall management on the project. As our company expands, there will be a need for us to relocate to a larger space. When that day comes, CPM will be one of my first calls.
– Darryl Garcia, Executive Producer, VP Infomercial
