Dave Cairns joins Kadence as Future of Work Strategist

We’re delighted to welcome thought leader, Dave Cairns, to the Kadence team as our new Future of Work Strategist.

Dave brings an excellent set of relationships and a clear perspective on the future of work, following his time as the Senior Vice President of Office Leasing at CBRE Canada. Dave’s focus has been on working with high growth companies in the tech sector, Space as a Service Operators, and with financial services firms on a local, national and global level.

As a leading voice in the industry, his advocacy for distributed working has established him as a leading voice on LinkedIn whose insights have significantly shaped the conversation around how global organizations are thinking about new ways of working.

Transitioning from a successful career as a professional poker player to a prominent office leasing broker for some of the world’s most respected companies, Dave has demonstrated a remarkable ability to anticipate shifts in the workplace landscape. During the pandemic, his foresight into the future of the office market has been greatly lauded. His work focuses on how hybrid work models have become the default, how they can be optimized and how distributed work enables opportunities to be spread more evenly.

Dave Cairns expressed his enthusiasm about joining Kadence, stating: 

“Workplace leaders have known for some time that the office hasn’t performed optimally, but no one could have predicted that the rest of the world would become self-aware at the same time. We now have a generationally defining opportunity to reshape how we work faster. It’s this backdrop and this moment that has me beyond excited to join Dan and the whole Kadence team! I’m looking forward to leveraging my deep understanding of distributed work from my days as a pro online poker player and my 10+ years, 1,000+ transaction track record as an office leasing agent to a company redefining employee experience and workplace performance at scale.”

CEO and Founder, Dan Bladen, commented:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Dave to the Kadence team. Dave’s work will play a pivotal role in amplifying Kadence’s values to a wider audience, and ensuring that we continue to deliver solutions that meet the evolving needs of forward-thinking businesses.”
