MICHELE PENARANDA, VICE PRESIDENT OF STRATEGY

PON is fortunate to have Mrs. Penaranda leading its strategic growth efforts - after serving for 7 years in various operational roles at Carr Workplaces, Michele has developed a unique arsenal of strategic operational skills vital to making brands thrive. Just prior to joining the team at PON, Mrs. Penaranda led the development of Carr Workplaces app and technology platform, WorkReadyPLUS, which greatly streamlines everyday administrative tasks for Carr Workplaces clients such as allowing them to pay their bills or reserving meeting rooms and office space across any of Carr Workplaces 27 centers, and all from their smartphones. A Florida native, Michele studied Business at The Florida State University but has called Washington, D.C. home since 2014. 

MORGAN NEFF - VICE PRESIDENT, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

If anyone was tailored-made to spearhead growth in the flexible office space industry, it’s Morgan Neff. Her mother was in the business for over 25 years so even as a child Neff began to develop an innate appreciation for creating community in the workplace. After studying business at the University of Georgia, she made a natural transition into the flexible office space world, first driving channel marketing and then becoming a General and then Regional Manager for Carr Workplaces, learning every facet of the business over her decade-long tenure with the company. With the renewed push to broaden PON’s already wide reach and expand its offerings to both clients and members, Neff was a natural choice to lead the charge. Atlanta is home for Neff, her husband and growing family.
