RISMEDIA, Feb. 5, 2007-Realty Executives International recently announced the appointment of Scott Hurlock to the senior management team as the new Executive Director of Franchise Sales for the international franchisor. In his new role, Hurlock will be responsible for developing new and existing national and international franchise relationships and affiliations.
By leveraging Hurlock's expertise and skill, Realty Executives International will be able to more effectively focus on the quality growth of the franchise network through both new franchisees and conversions of existing non-affiliated companies.
"Adding [Hurlock] to our leadership team aligns perfectly with our goal of effectively recruiting the right new franchisees to our growing worldwide network of real estate professionals," said Glenn Melton, chief operating officer at Realty Executives International. "With increased focus on quality recruiting strategies to attract like-minded, service-oriented and highly productive sales professionals and franchisees we will achieve our goal of being the best real estate firm in the industry."
Hurlock has held positions with several successful franchise companies nationwide. Most recently, he was a regional vice president of franchise development for the well-known Realogy franchise group, where he consistently exceeded sales quotas and was responsible for approximately $1.4 billion in gross yearly residential sales from mergers, acquisitions and conversions. Realogy operates Coldwell Banker, Coldwell Banker Commercial, ERA, Century 21 and Sotheby's real estate companies. Hurlock's excellent capabilities in new business generation, strategic planning, sales management and training, negotiation and relationship-building make him an ideal fit for the senior management team at Realty Executives International.
"It's very exciting to be working closely with such a well-established and goal-oriented team like the one here at Realty Executives International," said Hurlock. "I am looking forward to helping grow the Realty Executives brand through increased emphasis on quality franchise development within the United States and abroad."
