E|SPACES, an innovative office and meeting space concept opening June 1 in Chattanooga, announces former pro golfer Derek Rende as vice president of sales. Mr. Rende will be responsible for connecting area businesses with the service, amenities and space available at E|SPACES.

“In launching a new E|SPACES facility, we needed the right location and the right team,” said Jon Pirtle, CEO of E|SPACES. “Chattanooga is perfect for our concept, and having Derek on board is a huge asset to our team. I know he’ll do well in driving sales at E|SPACES, while continuing to build on his community relationships.”
