LExC elects new leadership team
The League of Extraordinary Coworking Spaces (LEXC) the leading nationwide network of coworking spaces in North America, has transitioned its leadership team after two years of global growth.
President Liz Elam (Link Coworking) and Treasurer Bill Jacobson (Workbar) are transitioning their roles, respectively, to Jamie Russo (Enerspace Coworking) and Michael Feinstein (Buro). Jerome Chang (BLANKSPACES) will remain in his role as secretary.
“The founding executive team has created a phenomenal network of coworking leaders and shared workspaces around the U.S., and recently made its first global expansion into Australia (Hub Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide). The professional development and best practice sharing among the group is game changing for its members. We are extremely grateful for the time and effort Liz, Bill and Jerome have put forth over the past two years. They have developed LEXC into the valuable organization it is today, and we look forward to continuing that trend,” says Russo, owner of Enerspace Coworking in Chicago and Palo Alto.
Elam adds, “LEXC has grown to 33 locations since its inception in 2014. We are proud of the value it’s adding to its member coworking spaces and excited to infuse the group with new leadership energy.” Stepping out of the top role allows Elam to focus on the coworking conference that she founded and orchestrates, Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC).
The new leadership team will pursue LEXC’s 2014 goals, including geographic expansion both in the U.S. and globally, and continued best practice sharing and thought leadership in the coworking industry.
