RE/MAX Holdings has named a new CEO after nearly two years of searching: Erik Carlson, former CEO of the DISH Network Corporation. The firm’s last CEO, Adam Contos, stepped down in January 2022, and Stephen Joyce has been serving in the interim.
RE/MAX Holdings announced the appointment of Carlson in a statement on Monday. According to that statement, Carlson oversaw day-to-day operations at DISH, managed over $15 billion in revenue and was “instrumental in successful acquisitions.”
“He is a strong, well-rounded leader with decades-long experience overseeing large businesses and managing high-performance teams in a disruptive industry, with a self-described ‘obsessive focus on the customer,’” RE/MAX Holdings Chairman and Co-Founder Dave Liniger said of Carlson.
“I am excited to start this next chapter in my career as CEO of RE/MAX Holdings,” Carlson said. “I look forward to joining the RE/MAX Holdings team and applying my operational expertise as well as my experience working with local businesses and serving local communities.”
RE/MAX Holdings is the parent company of both brokerage franchisor RE/MAX and Motto Mortgage; Nick Bailey, who serves as the CEO of RE/MAX’s franchise business, remains in that position.
