Previously working as COO of Fiveoffices, Carolyn Prestat succeeds co-founder Benjamin Tillier.
Fiveoffices has appointed Carolyn Prestat as its new CEO. She succeeds Benjamin Tillier, one of the co-founders of the company with Dan Schneider and Robert Glaesener.
Operating in Luxembourg and Paris, the sharing platform connects companies looking for office space with providers of available and unused space.
Prestat (36) joined the startup in September 2022 as COO and has a background in business and law. She began her career at Arendt & Medernach as a lawyer in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions.
She then joined the PwC group as a senior M&A consultant, and became the COO for the startup Kliber, before returning to operations and international development in 2018 within the Quilvest Wealth Management group.
Her goals are to continue developing the platform in France while starting its international deployment in Europe and the United States. “I am very excited to get even more involved in this new entrepreneurial adventure because I am resolute that empty offices are an ecological and economic waste,” she explained.
Founded in July 2022, the community portal offers digital office-sharing solutions that are accessible to all, flexible and sustainable.
“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 startup phase, and I’m very happy that Carolyn will be taking over as CEO,” Benjamin Tillier added.
