Upflex, a hybrid workspace solution proptech, today announced appointing Michael Casolo as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), according to a press release.
The company says Casolo will oversee the startup’s revenue planning, scaling and reporting, in order to guide the team through its next stage of growth following its recent $30 million Series A led by WeWork.
Upflex stated plants to expand its key software offering, recruit top talent and expand its network to 30,000 bookable workspaces by 2025 at the time of that funding.
“I am extremely pleased to welcome Michael to our team. 2022 has been a pivotal year for Upflex. Our latest capital infusion, combined with unwavering demand from our industry’s leading enterprises, flex space providers and brokers for a superior workplace experience, puts us at the forefront of defining the future office. Michael has the deep experience and expertise to empower us to achieve this, and his role here will be invaluable,” stated Christophe Garnier, Upflex co-founder and CEO, in the release.
Casolo joins Upflex from Unispace, where he served as CRO for almost two years and led business development, client solutions and marketing communications for the brand. Prior to that role, he acted as Head of Workplace Environments for Bridgewater Associates and Global President of Client Solutions at Cushman & Wakefield. Casolo also previously held roles at JLL, The Staubach Company and United Systems Integrators, according to the release.
“I’ve spent nearly three decades of my career building towards the next generation of work at the critical intersection of technology, real estate and culture,” Casolo stated in the release.
“The unmatched opportunity to join Christophe and his talented team at Upflex at this notable time in the startup’s trajectory was a no-brainer. Together, we’ll drive an industry evolution,” he said.
