RE/MAX Holdings names new CEO, Erik Carlson, after 2-year search

by Emily Mack

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.

The decision comes shortly after RE/MAX’s $55 million settlement in the landmark Sitzer/Burnett trial.

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.
