Ryan Schneider Coming to Realogy
Ryan Schneider is stepping into a variety of very large shoes as the President, the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Executive Officer of the residential real estate juggernaut Realogy this coming December 31, 2017.
No stranger to filling large shoes, Schneider comes to Realogy with 15 years in senior leadership positions at Capital One Financial Organization where he was, from 2007 to 2016, President of Capital One’s Card division, the company’s largest business. While in that role, Schneider oversaw all consumer and small business credit card lines, managed a staff of more than 10,00 people and doubled the business’s assets to $90B while growing its net income to $2B/yearly. Schneider also had a leadership role in managing Capital One’s franchise auto finance business.
Schneider follows in the footsteps of Richard Smith. Smith spent 21 years as the Chair and CEO of Realogy and built the business into the leading residential real estate services company in the US.
Realogy’s brands include Better Homes and Gardens, Coldwell Banker (both residential and commercial), Century 21 and Sotheby’s International Realty. Unmatched in terms of scale and resources, Realogy is the leader in existing home sales in the US. 187,700 independent sales agents in the US hang their hats in Realogy offices; 90,000 independent sales agents in more than 100 countries and territories call Realogy offices home as well.
Schneider’s excitement about assuming these new roles with Realogy was palpable in his remarks as well as in his delivery. “I am thrilled with the opportunity to join Realogy in this leadership capacity because I’m convinced of the strength of its fully integrated business model, the quality of its people, the foundation for growth that it has built, the capacity it has for accelerating its growth based upon new ways to use data, analytics and technology and the unique advantages that Realogy can leverage in an industry that generated over $70B in commissions last year.”
Good luck, Ryan Schneider. Progress forward and enjoy.
