With companies trimming their support staffs, more and more executives are looking outside their work forces for services once handled by secretaries and administrative assistants. And a growing number — no one knows quite how many — of corporate concierges have been setting up shop to fill the need. With desks in the lobbies of large office buildings or just a phone call away, they have helped with everything from briefcase repairs to marriage proposals to digging up 50 Washington Redskins sweatshirts on short notice (a law firm wanted them for a Japanese client).
A building automation system featuring card key access to individual floors and offices has been installed for tenant security and convenience. In addition, 2600 Michelson offers a corporate concierge service.
