REALTORS® Choose Bob Goldberg as Next CEO
Bob Goldberg has been named CEO of the National Association of REALTORS®, officially taking over the largest trade association August 1, 2017. He currently serves as NAR senior vice president of Sales & Marketing, Business Development & Strategic Investments, Professional Development and Conventions. He’s also senior vice president of administration for REALTOR® University and president and CEO of the REALTORS® Information Network, an NAR for-profit and wholly owned subsidiary responsible for overseeing the realtor.com® operating agreement with Move Inc.
Goldberg has been with NAR since 1995 and will be NAR’s 12th CEO since the association was founded in 1908. He succeeds Dale Stinton, who is retiring at the end of 2017 after 36 years at NAR and 12 as CEO.
“Bob’s vision, business acumen, and unique ability to successfully leverage NAR’s technology investments will ensure REALTORS® remain at the center of the real estate transaction,” said 2017 NAR President William E. Brown, a REALTOR® from Alamo, California. “With extensive knowledge of the association and real estate industry, Bob brings with him a strong track record for future-based thinking and enacting change, which is why the NAR leadership team is extremely confident in his ability to lead the association and membership to continued future success.”
Goldberg was the choice of NAR’s leadership team after an extensive national search by a committee of REALTORS® and AEs. The search committee, which worked with the search firm Heidrick & Struggles, was chaired by Chris Polychron a REALTOR® from Hot Springs, Arkansas. The vice chair was Cathy Whatley, a REALTOR® from Jacksonville, Fla. Both are former NAR presidents.
