Sarah Drew

Director, Workplace Experience Simple

Over the past 15 years Sarah has worked in the Corporate Real Estate as both a service provider and end user. Starting her career as a Project Account Manager at a Boston based, women owned CRE project solutions firm, she quickly realized her passion for space planning and creating evolved employee environments. She transitioned to Fidelity Investments taking on large scale, fast paced projects where the goals weren’t only on timeline and budget, but employee experience. She led projects that focused on the future of work, including early adoption of flexible/unassigned work environments to large scale campus build outs throughout the New England & Tri-State area. 

Heading to the Northwest in 2012 she quickly took to Portland. Realizing it had the true potential to be one of the greatest cities for Workplace in the US. Since being here she has worked with teams and projects of all sizes, both nationally and internationally. Her main focus is to create a well-branded, high-functioning space that spoke not only the city it was in, but the specific departmental and employee needs as well.  

4 years ago she found herself in Tech and was hooked. The fast pace and exploration of this field has allowed her to discover new ways to be creative from kick off to post-occupancy. She is invested heavily on inclusion, building community and fostering culture.  She believes the workplace is always evolving and it is our roles as leaders to evolve with it. 

Prior to coming to Simple, Sarah was the Sr Global Workplace Manager at Puppet. She holds a BFA from Lesley University in Boston and is an active member of CoreNet.
