WeWork appoints Shyam Gidumal as COO

Co-working platform WeWork has appointed a former Ernst & Young executive, as its new chief operating officer.


At E& Y he served as a partner and principal at Ernst & Young and was responsible for the retail and consumer products market segment.


Gidumal has more than 35 years of consulting and operations leadership experience. In his earlier career stints, he was associated with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in the US and AlixPartners in Asia.


The appointment comes a few days after Sandeep Mathrani formally took charge of the SoftBank-controlled coworking startup as CEO.


Commenting on Gidumal's appointment, Gidumal said “Shyam has been an invaluable partner to me for many years during critical business inflection points, helping to focus operations and organizations including at Vornado, and repositioning companies for effective growth. We look forward to continuing to add to the WeWork senior leadership team.”
