Spencer Travel has relocated from the office space it has inhabited in Sydney’s CBD since 1998, moving to new offices in Mascot last weekend.
“Our new offices reflect the kind of business we are now,” says Penny Spencer, Managing Director and Founder of the Spencer Group of Companies and the founder of the Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME).
“We have grown and evolved dramatically in recent years, and the business needed a new space to call its own. So we’ve left Sydney’s fashion district and relocated to something truly glamorous,” Spencer said.
Spencer Travel’s new, larger offices are located just 10 kilometres from the CBD at Heritage Business Park, Ricketty Street, Mascot.
Writing on her LinkedIn blog about the move, Spencer admits the move was a “tricky project”.
“There’s all the hard stuff (your tech, equipment, furniture, fittings and the like) that has to be moved. But there’s also the soft stuff – your people and how they feel about it,” she posted.
No-one likes moving at the best of times. So, when you’re asking your staff to relocate from a part of the city that’s pretty vibrant and close to transport, to a new, slightly less sexy part of town, emotions can run high.
“The move went well. Moving the physical stuff is, after all, an exercise in logistics. Like any procurement project, we did our due diligence and contracted capable, trustworthy suppliers. We were organised, and had some brilliant people in charge of project managing the process from start-to-finish. We approached it like we were our own client, and we are an attention-to-detail business,” Spencer noted on LinkedIn.
“Office relocations are an exercise in precision logistics, and we’re delighted to advise that ours was completed without a hitch,” Spencer Travel’s General Manager, Tina Killeen said.
With hotel-style bathrooms, a cafe-style breakout space for staff, multiple meeting rooms and dedicated quiet-rooms, Spencer Travel is ready for a new era to the business. The company’s surroundings may have changed, but one thing has not.
“We’ve brought our renowned Spencer spirit with us. It’s what defines us.”

“As we enter a new era for Spencer Travel, we bring with us so many great memories of a business journey that I could never have imagined when our doors first opened,” added Spencer.
Spencer Travel’s new office is located at:
Unit 1C, Level 2
