Covo is a family business, and all of our employees and members are part of that family.

Rebecca Brian Pan
CEO

Rebecca is an internationally recognized boss in the world of coworking. As co-founder and COO of NextSpace, she helped grow a one-unit startup into a nationwide, nine-unit industry leader ranked #1 in the country in 2014. She transferred that experience and skills to Covo, a coworking space at it's core, surrounded with an open-to-the-public coffee shop, bar, and café. She is a tireless 7X serial entrepreneur, with a bicoastal graphic design firm, children's literacy non-profit, design association, and of course coworking, on her list of successful ventures.

She credits her entrepreneurial spirit to the belief that if it doesn't exist and should, we should make it happen. Together. Now. Rebecca graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, and thanks Penn for instilling in her an early love of business, entrepreneurship and adult beverages.
Daniel Brian
COO

Daniel has more than eight years of experience providing legal counsel to corporate clients ranging in size from Fortune 100 companies to startups. Daniel is an expert in corporate contracts, commercial zoning and development, corporate structuring, real estate, and government relations. He is in charge of all legal, financial, and operational issues for Covo.

Dan earned a Juris Doctor from Columbia Law School and a Bachelor of Science from Penn State, then worked for 7 years at nationally-acclaimed firm Beveridge & Diamond before we stole him, his beautiful brain, and his sense of humor.

Jason Pan
CTO

Jason has set the standard for coworking technology. He developed seamless network environments for prominent coworking companies including Galvanize, NextSpace, Campus and ECO-SYSTM. He is the founder of FixSwift, a Bay Area IT firm that supports many of the companies you know well.

Jason has more than 10 years of experience setting up and supporting bar and restaurant technology. He is also a consumate foodie, and travels the world with a mangia tutti (eat everything) attitude. It can be at the fanciest or diviest of locales, can still be moving, and can be upwards of 4,000,000 scoville units (also known as the spiciest food available).
 
Kirstie Foster
General Manager, F&B

Kirstie has been a part of the restaurant industry her whole life. Armed with a Bachelors in Business Administration, Cicerone and Sommelier certification, Kirstie has made a career assisting both small and large businesses run successful and exciting food and beverage programs.

Her position at Covo is to provide you with an expertly curated beverage menu and the best damn cup of coffee you'll find. Kirstie finds joy in creating relationships with her guests by sharing a bottle of cheap italian wine and possibly forcing them to stare at pictures of her pets.
Alex Anderson
Community Manager

Alex is as passionate as it gets when it comes to the world of coworking. After breaking into the scene over two years ago, Alex quickly realized that coworking was his calling. Hired on as a roaming Community Builder at NextSpace, Alex rapidly worked his way up to manage all Bay Area locations before joining Covo.

We like to refer to him as our “Swiss Army Knife,” as he can be found rolling up his sleeves to paint walls, repair furniture, provide incredible customer support, and (literally) herd cats. His excellent work ethic and his “let’s make it happen” attitude are exactly why he fits right into the Covo family. Alex loves beer, wine, and coworking so much that it may be difficult to keep him from living at Covo.
