WeWork executive Jason Lund, who was let go from the beleaguered co-working company during its recent round of massive layoffs, has taken a new job at Colliers International.

Lund will manage Colliers’ New York City operations, according to Crain’s. He will focus on helping the company recruit brokers and improve its leasing operations.

He had been at WeWork from June 2018 until the end of November. Although Lund said his time at the company was mostly positive, he also described the firm as a chaotic place that put a very small amount of emphasis on standard leasing practices and financial analysis.

WeWork announced in November that it would lay off 2,400 of its employees following a disastrous IPO attempt that saw co-founder Adam Neumann step down as CEO.

Lund had worked at brokerages including JLL, Cushman & Wakefield, Newmark Knight Frank and Colliers prior to joining WeWork. His return to Colliers is meant to help David Amsterdam, the company’s president of east coast operations, focus more on his regional role.

“Colliers is a top firm globally and my goal is to bring it to that same stature in the city,” Lund told Crain’s. “I’m excited at the opportunity to help this firm become one of the great New York brokerage companies.” [Crain’s— Eddie Small
