The announcement comes on the heels of WeWork hiring real-estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani as its new CEO. Mathrani, the former CEO of Brookfield Properties Retail, replaced two interim CEOs who had been in place following the dramatic exit of Adam Neumann in October 2019.

“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,” WeWork CEO Sandeep Mathrani said in a statement Thursday.

“Having him as a partner in managing our business that spans 37 countries will be a significant boon to our operations and executive team.”
