About the Team:

The Strategic Initiatives team at Industrious executes the Company's priorities and drives projects across teams. We've taken the company international, driven merger integrations, quarterbacked the company's response to COVID, and executed some of the company's most impactful initiatives. The team plays a critical role in defining and executing priorities for the company alongside executives and cross-functional teammates.

Industrious is emerging from COVID in a position of strength. We continue to grow, exceed sales goals as occupiers transition to flex offices, and have influential strategic backers.
