Adam Contos has taken full responsibility of CEO duties at RE/MAX Holdings Inc., the parent company of the RE/MAX brokerage franchise.
The transition of leadership from the firm’s co-founder David Liniger started in May 2017 when Contos was appointed co-CEO. Liniger becomes non-executive chairman.
“Adam has played an integral role in extending and strengthening the RE/MAX brand across a global network of over 115,000 RE/MAX agents as well as the successful launch of Motto Mortgage just 16 months ago,” commented the board’s led director Richard Covey. “His experience serving in key leadership roles at the Company coupled with his deep knowledge of the real estate business make him a natural choice to lead RE/MAX Holdings into the future."
Prior to becoming co-CEO, 46-year old Contos was COO at the company and has held several leadership roles since joining in 2004.
RE/MAX launched its Motto Mortgage network in the US in October 2016 and continues to expand across the country.
"Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX and our network has never been stronger,” said Contos. “Motto Mortgage is off to a terrific start and we could not be more optimistic about its future. As we head into this next chapter, I am excited about the prospects for continuing our successful momentum, driven by our outstanding business model, brand strength, competitive advantages and the most dynamic brokers and agents in the industry."
