February 23, 2021
Real estate giant Keller Williams announced several executive moves on Monday, including the departure of its president, Josh Team. Marc King, formerly the co-director of growth at Keller Williams, was named president in Team’s place. The changes are effective immediately.
The executive changes were announced at an internal meeting with top corporate leadership and staff on Monday. The staffing changes are to help Keller Williams position itself for growth and innovation, the company said in a news release.
In an email to KW associates, Gary Keller, executive chairman of KWx, the parent holding company of KW, said of King assuming the role of president: “His deep knowledge of our company, rich experience, and embodiment of our culture makes him a natural fit for this new role.”
Keller also acknowledged Team’s role as president and for helping to advance technology during his tenure. “He was an advocate for moving technology forward to help KWRI agents remain competitive in an evolving digital market,” Keller says. “He led the company during a time when agents experienced their most productive quarter ever.”
Other executive changes announced on Monday included Matt Green, previously co-director of growth at KW, named as head of agent and partner experience. Jason Abrams, previously vice president of industry at KW, named as head of industry. Chris Cox, who was recently with Bain Consulting, moved into the position as head of technology and digital.
“Our latest executive moves will reinforce our brands’ strong commitment to supporting our associates with the technology, training, and tools necessary to meet their clients’ needs—at any stage of the home-buying process,” Carl Liebert, CEO of KWx, says.
Last week, Keller Williams announced its year-end results for 2020, revealing a profitable year of sales for the franchise. As 2020 ended, KW agents had closed more than 1.22 million transactions, up 7.9% over 2019. In the fourth quarter alone, agents saw a nearly 28% increase over 2019. KW’s sales volume was up 16% in 2020, to $407.4 billion in sales.
