Mobile's chief executive is in talks to become WeWork's new boss

T-Mobile chief executive John Legere

WeWork did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment.

The Journal says WeWork would like to install a new CEO as soon as January, citing several unnamed sources with knowledge.

The office-sharing startup is reportedly in talks with T-Mobile chief executive John Legere to take over its top job, just weeks after former CEO Adam Neumann's spectacular flameout.

WeWork, which provides shared workspaces for tech startups, is now being led by co-CEOs Artie Minson, the former chief financial officer, and Sebastian Gunningham, former vice chairman.

SoftBank spent $10 billion to take over WeWork last month and appointed Sprint chairman Marcelo Claure as chairman of WeWork. He declined to rule out requesting that the $26 billion price be reduced.

United Kingdom economy avoids recession with 0.3% Q3 growth
Growth in the United Kingdom economy has slowed to its lowest rate in nearly a decade, the Office for National Statistics said. Manufacturing, the largest sub-sector of production, also was flat in the three months to September.

Neumann, who attracted criticism for his erratic management style, was replaced as CEO by Minson and Gunningham, but speculation has been rife that the pair are only a stopgap solution.

T-Mobile's boisterous and pugnacious CEO John Legere is in the news again, and this time, it's not for calling Verizon and AT&T "dumb and dumber" or cursing up a storm at some event.

Almost 200 campaigns and political groups have spent more than $8 million at the president's resorts and other businesses since his election in 2016, according to Politico, citing a new report from consumer-rights group Public Citizen.

In a presentation published last week, WeWork said it also plans to divest seven non-core businesses - Conductor, the Wing, Managed by Q, Meetup, SpaceIQ, Teem and Wave Garden. Since he became CEO, Legere drove an aggressive campaign in which T-Mobile branded itself the "Un-carrier", with new pricing strategies, subscriber benefits and promotions that forced rivals to change their own packages and promotions.
