CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Laura Kozelouzek is a Florida-based developer and operator with more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality and flexible workspace industries. In 2010, she founded Quest Workspaces, which has since become the largest woman-owned shared workspace company in the U.S. In the last year, Laura has grown Quest Workspaces by more than 50%, adding more than 97,626 square feet of office space to its portfolio, including two new locations in Downtown Miami and expanding its West Palm Beach presence. In total, Quest Workspaces currently has 14 locations in Florida and Manhattan, comprising 310,000 square feet of Class A commercial office space and serving more than 1,000 clients. Laura is a visionary business builder, well-respected for her ability to create “high energy” results-oriented workspaces. In 2004, she founded Synergy Workplaces, growing the company to 25 national locations with over 100 employees and producing over $25 million in sales. She was also an executive at HQ/Regus, where she was responsible for its most profitable region, representing 80 locations and 5,000 customers and generating $180 million in annual sales. A serial entrepreneur, Laura has owned a trendy NYC restaurant, launched a real estate newspaper and started a brokerage business. Her self-funded company structure puts her in a unique position to pass down cost benefits to clients where other organizations cannot. Laura is also a dedicated philanthropist. Since 2014, she has donated more than $411,000 worth of office spaces and meeting rooms to 52 nonprofits as part of her company’s Quest Cares initiative. Laura’s long list of accolades includes: Connect CRE’s 2023 Women in Real Estate; Bisnow’s 2023 list of Women Transforming the South Florida Real Estate Market; the South Florida Business Journal’s 2022 Influential Business Woman Award and 2023 Ultimate CEO Awards honoree; the Miami-Dade County Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s 2020 Thelma Gibson Award; and Globe St.’s 2023 Woman of Influence Award. Quest Workspaces was nominated for the South Florida Business Journal’s 2023 Business of the Year Award and recognized as one of the publication’s “Best Places to Work” for nine consecutive years (2012-2020). Other awards include the Daily Business Review’s Best of 2018: Executive Suite and Virtual Office Provider; South Florida Business Journal’s Coolest Offices of 2018; and Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Company for three consecutive years (2016-2018). In July 2023, just as Barbie mania was hitting fever pitch ahead of the movie’s summer premiere, Laura banked on the pop culture phenomenon to drive awareness for her brand and draw in new customers. In honor of the doll who proved she could do it all, Quest Workspaces launched the Barbie Dream Office, which made headlines nationwide.

"I must first start off by saying thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity you gave my organization. Through your help, my organization was able to get into an elementary school that fully adopted my program. We went from tutoring children two Saturdays a month to being asked to be there every Saturday. Also, we have made contact with a private Christian school who wants to bring us on board. Who knew having a physical address setup would change so much, and set so many things in motion?I am forever grateful to Quest Workspaces and to you for the heart this company has in giving back to our community."
"Thanks to Laura and the Quest Workspaces team. We started in our living rooms and coffee shops. Now having an office space, it really makes a difference. We have met a lot of great people which has helped spread the word of our mission. We are now able to meet with editors and donators in a great workspace. We are so thankful"
