WeWork is on the hunt for a new CEO after the dramatic fall of its former CEO and founder, Adam Neumann.
Sources told Reuters WeWork has been in talks with a number of potential candidates, including T-Mobile CEO John Legere. Though, he is not a leading contender, one of the sources said.
WeWork’s current co-CEOs, Artie Minson and Sebastian Gunningham, have only been in place since September but majority owner Softbank appears eager for a fresh face after a botched effort by WeWork to go public earlier this year.
That cost Neumann his job and cost Softbank about $10 billion to take control of WeWork, rescuing the company from potential bankruptcy.
But Softbank's move didn't sit well with some minority shareholders, who are suing several WeWork officials, including Neumann, for allowing the Japanese conglomerate to up its stake at what they called a "fire-sale" price, and for allowing Neumann to walk away with a whopping $1.7 billion exit package.
Neumann has also been accused of gender discrimination, including allegedly smoking pot on an airplane near a pregnant employee.
