Keller Williams has announced that Mark Willis has been named CEO, effective immediately. Willis, a team leader in Austin from 1991-2002 and former president then CEO for the company, left KW in 2015. He returned earlier this year as a strategic consultant.
“We are excited to announce that Mark Willis has joined our leadership team as CEO,” said Gary Keller, co-founder and executive chairman of Keller Williams. “With a deep knowledge of our company and our culture, Mark is well-suited to lead us through our next growth phase. With so much uncertainty surrounding the real estate industry today, it’s never been more important to have a leader who thoroughly knows us and understands business at the highest level. That’s Mark Willis.”
“Keller Williams has the best success models for agents and brokerages to thrive no matter the economic, industry, or business challenges,” said Willis. “We face headwinds and change, and that’s nothing new. As an innovative force since 1983, we remain optimistically forward-thinking and focused on serving our agents and brokerage partners as they provide powerful customer and business experiences.”
