In a letter today, Jeffrey Wheeler announced that he is stepping down from his role of President and Chief Operating Officer of Coldwell Banker United. Over the past five years Mr. Wheeler has successfully managed one of the great brokerages South Carolina, among the best Coldwell Banker franchises in the nation and around the world. Real Trends ranks Coldwell Banker United as the 4Th largest brokerage in America.
Although details of the next chapter of Wheeler’s life was not detailed in the letter, you can imagine that he will continue to deliver his brand of inspired leadership in his future endeavours. Although WAV Group has never worked directly with CB United or Mr. Wheeler, we have long admired the strength of their organization and his role there. We are grateful for their support of our industry research projects over the years. Here is the announcement letter that we received today.
After five years of serving as President and COO of Coldwell Banker United, Realtors® of the Carolina’s, I have decided to put my leadership and entrepreneurial skills to work in a different arena. I appreciate the opportunity to have worked with Richard Smith and all the fine people of Coldwell Banker United, Realtors, but there comes a point when it is time to move on to other opportunities. We have successfully navigated the past three years of a troubled real estate market, reducing our annual operating costs by five million dollars, while maintaining our gross revenue at over 30 million dollars. We have a strong business plan in place for 2011, and the company is positioned for success in the coming years.
I believe the experience of serving in a variety of leadership positions, in both the business and faith communities, has uniquely equipped me to assist others in this new economy and “new normal.”
I have enjoyed our relationship and look forward to maintaining that connection while I seek God’s direction for the next journey in my life. In the meantime, my contact information remains the same, or you may contact me via my website:www.jeffreybwheeler.com.
