(Reuters) – WeWork Inc on Tuesday named Chief Executive Officer Sandeep Mathrani as chairman of the office-sharing company, months after Marcelo Claure gave up the position.
Mathrani, a real estate industry veteran, was named WeWork’s chief executive in 2020 and given the task of turning the tide after an IPO attempt and investor concerns about corporate governance standards.
Claure, the former chief operating officer of SoftBank Group Corp, also left his position at the Japanese investment giant in January.
WeWork announced on Tuesday that Saurabh Jalan, from SoftBank Group International, a unit of SoftBank Group, has joined its board of directors.
Jalan, who has been with SoftBank since 2015, oversees the conglomerate’s investments in companies like WeWork and T-Mobile US, among others.
