As executive vice president of Global Strategic Alliances for RE/MAX, Mike Ryan has been a leading voice at RE/MAX and a tireless advocate for the real estate industry and the consumers it serves. In 2018, Ryan helped RE/MAX reach all-time highs in agent count, office count and global presence.
Ryan’s many accomplishments over the course of his 25-year career with the firm include: directing the launch of the RE/MAX Satellite Network in 1994, the industry’s first-ever business television network; working with U.S. government officials on housing policies to address challenges facing distressed homeowners from 2008 – 2009; and overseeing brand marketing, PR and communication efforts in the IPO of RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. In 2017, Ryan received the RISMedia National Leadership Award.
“Great things happen when talented people come together and work toward a common goal,” says Ryan. “Always think big – really big – and when you see a ‘home run’ opportunity, don’t hesitate to pull the trigger. Timing, teamwork and execution separate the true newsmakers from the pack.”
Ryan recently announced his retirement from RE/MAX as of Jan. 2, 2019, after which he will act in an advisory capacity for the company. “I’ve been fortunate to be part of the premier brand in the world,” he said in a statement. “I’ve learned something new every step of the way.”
