RISMEDIA, January 27, 2010—RE/MAX International, Inc. has announced that key members of its management team are being promoted to take on new roles and responsibilities to further the company’s domestic and global franchise expansion in 2010.
Mark Baker, formerly Vice President of Regional Development, was named Vice President, Senior Area Director, Western U.S. and will continue to build the network of RE/MAX Company Operated Regions (COR) and Independent Regions across the western half of the country. Nick Bailey, formerly Regional Vice President, RE/MAX Florida, was named Vice President, Area Director, Eastern U.S. and will now oversee development and expansion efforts of COR and Independent Regions across the eastern half of the country.
