Following the success of its launch in Luxembourg & Paris, Fiveoffices, which connects companies looking for office space with those who have available and unused space, announces the appointment of Carolyn Prestat as CEO. She succeeds Benjamin Tillier - co-founder with Dan Schneider and Robert Glaesener.
Currently COO of Fiveoffices and a graduate of EM Lyon, Carolyn Prestat, 36, began her career as a lawyer specialising in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. After joining the PwC group as a senior M&A consultant, she became Chief Operating Officer at the start-up Kliber, where she managed its development and growth strategy for 3 years.
In 2018, she returned to operations and international development within the Quilvest Wealth Management group before being spotted by Robert Glaesener, a co-founder of Fiveoffices (also a co-founder of Talkwalker), whom she joined in September 2022.
With her experience in operations, corporate finance and startup development, her ambition is to continue the development of Fiveoffices in France while starting its international deployment in Europe and the United States.
I'm very excited to get even more involved in this new entrepreneurial adventure because I'm resolute that empty offices are an ecological and economic waste.” Carolyn Prestat, CEO of Fiveoffices
She adds: “Following the success of our launches in Paris and Luxembourg, I have seen that we can put an end to commercial vacancy by making Fiveoffices the indispensable partner of every entrepreneur who wants to monetise their vacant space or who wants to find flexible office space at a fair price.”
Benjamin Tillier, co-founder of Fiveoffices, says: “It was a pleasure to establish the launch of Fiveoffices. Everything is now in place. The platform is solid, the team is brilliant and the impressive market traction is verified day by day. It's time for me to hand over the reins after this start-up phase, and I'm very happy that Carolyn will be taking over as CEO.”
Founded in July 2022, Fiveoffices is a community portal that offers a new 100% digital office sharing experience that is accessible to all, flexible and sustainable by connecting companies looking for office space with those who have available and unused space.
