(Yicai Global) Sept. 24 -- A group led by Trustbridge Partners Management has poured USD200 million into WeWork China to become the coworking space operator's controlling shareholder.
Michael Jiang, operating partner of the growth equity firm that has offices in Boston and in Shanghai, will serve as WeWork China's acting chief executive, the Paper reported. Before these roles, Jiang held the title of senior vice president at lifestyle services giant Meituan Dianping.
The move will fully localize the office space management company's operations in China, the report added.
Since WeWork entered China in 2016, it has established more than 100 communities in 12 cities, including Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong, while providing office solutions for more than 65,000 clients.
