Arlington-born coworking company MakeOffices announced on Tuesday that it has hired Brian Bharwani as CFO. The four-year-old company, now with spaces all over the D.C. area, Philadelphia and Chicago, is looking to strengthen its leadership team.
“By hiring Brian we’re strengthening our core leadership at a time when our national presence is growing, we’ve proven our business model, and we’re ready to move to the next level,” CEO Raymond Rahbar said in a statement.
Bharwani joins MakeOffices with a strong background in the D.C. tech scene. Bharwani worked his way up at Blackboard before joining Full Measure Education (founded by Blackboard alums) as VP of finance. Most recently he served as vice president of financial planning and analysis at Reston, Va.-based Clarabridge.
“MakeOffices presented a great opportunity for me to be a part of a company with tremendous growth potential in an exciting industry,” Bharwani said in a statement. “I had worked for the past decade at software companies with no intention of leaving that space, but when I learned about MakeOffices and the strength of its business model coupled with a great team culture, it was too great to pass up.”
Interestingly, this mirrors the experience of Shana Glenzer, who joined MakeOffices in January after years at #dctech software startups. At the time Glenzer told Technical.ly the role felt “tailor-made” for her.
