Paul Boomsma, CEO, along with the brokerage leadership at Leading Real Estate Companies of the World led by Diane Ramirez of, Brown Harris Stevens Residential Sales, LLC, and Chairman of the Board of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, made a really smart, strategic move this week, naming Mickey Alam Khan as President of their Luxury Portfolio® International Division.
Mickey’s position as one of the world’s top luxury experts will undoubtedly open up all types of partnership and marketing opportunities for the largest and most progressive independent brokerages in America. From his New York-based office, we will also head up global expansion of Luxury Portfolio® International.
Alam Khan has a depth of luxury well beyond real estate. As Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Luxury Daily, he has built trust relationships with many of the most respected and revered luxury brands around the world. He also understands luxury holistically, clearly a skill that will be extremely valuable for Luxury Portfolio® International brokerages.
In addition, the purchase of Luxury Daily magazine will allow luxury brokerages to position themselves alongside some of the most well-known luxury brands elevating their and global brand presence.
As a long-time brand marketer myself, formerly SVP Marketing at Fisher-Price, I am thrilled that our industry was able to attract such a talent!
Such a smart move!
Here’s the full release below:
