Gregg Christiansen, a Board member of Ollie has taken over as President.

The Co-Founders of Ollie, a co-living startup, have left their roles at the firm.

Chris Bledsoe, CEO, and Andrew Bledsoe, COO, left the company last month. An Ollie spokesperson confirmed the brothers were no longer managing the company, and said the two will continue to advise the company as members of the board.

“Ollie is grateful for the vision and dedication provided by Chris and Andrew since the company’s inception,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

The spokesperson declined to say what prompted the co-founders’ exits. Neither responded to LinkedIn messages seeking comment.

Gregg Christiansen, a board member, will lead Ollie as President, a move supported by the board and the departing Co-Founders, the spokesperson said. The company did not specify if a search was underway for a new CEO and COO.

Christiansen, who has previously held roles at Northwestern Mutual and Fortress Investment Group, more recently launched a real estate investment firm, Cedar Hall Capital. He joined Ollie’s board in 2017, and was appointed President of the firm last month, according to his LinkedIn page.
