Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties made more changes to its executive suite in the wake of the recent stepping aside of former President and CEO Dan Forsman, who became chairman.
Senior Vice President of Relocation and Corporate Services Kathy Connelly was promoted to COO, while Senior Vice President of Real Estate Operations Todd Tucker was promoted to executive vice president for real estate operations and qualifying broker.
Connelly joined BHHS in January 1994 to lead business development and referral-business efforts, and in 2013, she became qualifying broker, leading all legal and compliance matters for the firm. In her new role, she will also seek to grow the company’s essential services and partnerships.
“Kathy is a recognized global leader and the perfect fit for the COO position,” said President and CEO DeAnn Golden, who replaced Forsman in July. “Her industry expertise, longtime tenure at our brokerage and passion for seeing our sales associates succeed position Kathy an integral part of our leadership team.”
Tucker joined the brokerage in 2003 as an assistant broker at the company’s North Cobb office, later serving as managing broker of several other locations. In his new role, Tucker will oversee a variety of BHHS personnel and functions, including regional managers, facilities and commercial real estate.
“Todd would easily make any list of who’s who in real estate for Atlanta,” Forsman said. “He has taken on so many roles in our company, and I couldn’t think of a better professional — and person — to lead our real estate operations and ensure our sales associates’ continued success.”
