Convene co-founder takes a step back

Chris Kelly, co-founder of coworking operator Convene, has stepped down from his role as president and now oversees the position as the board’s vice chairman. As a result, the company is searching for a new leader as it works towards global expansion.

Convene is based out of New York and currently has 23 locations across the country that offers coworking services for mid-sized tenants.

“Convene’s business has evolved over the past 10 years, and my role evolved along with it,” said Kelly said.

Now, Convene has plans for doubling its number of locations globally by the end of 2019. It signed its largest space at 116,000 square feet on 530 Fifth Avenue.

The company has raised $280 million since its launch a decade ago and has attracted investors from big names such as the Durst Organization.

Apart from his role as president, Kelly was also the leader for the launch of Elevate, the company’s workplace app for tenants and landlords that provides services such as keyless entry and food order. The platform is now live and Convene brought in a Chief Product Officer to advance the product further.
