Co-founder Chris Kelly to leave Convene
Convene’s co-founder is leaving. Chris Kelly, who also serves as vice chairman, will resign from the flexible office provider by the end of the year, according to Commercial Observer. He will still advise the startup. Convene has raised $260 million since its founding in 2009. Its backers include RXR Realty, the Durst Organization and Brookfield Asset Management. Kelly announced the decision Friday at a company meeting. He said he had been thinking about stepping down for years. The move signals a “vote of confidence in the company and its leadership,” he said, according to the report.
