Chris Kelly, Co-Founder, Convene, has received the H. Gordon Wyllie, MCR, Young Leader of the Year Award from CoreNet Global, the premier global association for corporate real estate executives.  The award was presented during the association’s Global Summit recently held in Boston, MA.

Kelly, a member of the New York City Chapter, co-founded Convene in 2009, and he has been a pioneer in the future of work since then – long before it took off in the mainstream media. Under Chris’s leadership, Convene was named to Inc. magazine’s “Best Workplaces” list in 2018, and to Fortune magazine’s “Best Workplaces in New York” in 2017.

Kelly has been an active member in the New York City Chapter’s Young Leaders Committee, helping drive new member growth and establishing an outreach initiative with NYU’s Masters in Real Estate program. He was named the New York City Chapter’s Service Provider of the Year in 2017.
