Ari Sacharow is the Senior Manager of Real Estate and Construction at DoorDash. Ari is responsible for the delivery of a rapidly expanding portfolio of 200+ office, retail, and light industrial locations. Previously, Ari was Head of Global Real Estate and Workplace at Quantcast where he managed a real estate portfolio of 22 office locations in 10 countries. There he shifted the team focus towards an Employee Experience mindset, which included the creation of a comprehensive Wellbeing initiative and countless other employee engagement events and programs.
Craig Loeber is the Director of Partner Relations at Industrious where he manages a US-based team of 34 people, both in-house and outsourced, focused on expanding the Industrious services platform more deeply into the traditional real estate ecosystem.
He has been completely obsessed with the future of work for longer than he likes to admit, and this passion has led him through roles across Europe, Africa, Asia, and now the US on both the occupier- and operator-sides. In recent roles, Craig’s focus has been solving for the integration and expansion of flexible space through traditional real estate channels and partners, and he continues that focus at Industrious. In his downtime, he’s likely digging through Soundcloud for new music, backcountry skiing, or reading up on the latest foreign policy updates.
