Audrey Gelman is the co-founder and CEO of The Wing, a coworking space-meets-social club for women in New York that offers living room-style work space, a locker room, a library, and on-demand blowouts. It’s meant to be both flexible space for professional women about town as well as a community hub for its 600 members. Gelman formerly worked as a senior vice president of the strategic communications firm SKDKnickerbocker, focusing on public affairs and local politics. She worked as a junior aide in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign and helped Scott M. Stringer win the office of New York City comptroller as his campaign spokesperson in 2013. But Gelman isn’t just a professional force; she’s a cultural one as well. Lena Dunham is one of her best friends, and she inspired the character of Marnie on Dunham’s hit series, Girls, and even had recurring cameos on the show herself. Gelman is the driving force behind The Wing, and plans to expand it to more cities in 2017.
