Global real estate franchise group, Harcourts International, has announced the appointment of Steve Caradoc-Davies as Chief Executive Officer to lead the 132-year-old company into the next era.
Mr Caradoc-Davies will take over leadership of the 900-office network and approximately 10,000 team members in nine countries from Mike Green, who takes on a new focus within the business. Both changes are effective from October 1, 2019.
“Steve brings a unique understanding from his 30 years in the real estate business, having held roles in property management, sales, office management, owning his own franchise for over 25 years and developing it into the best-performing Harcourts office in South Africa,” Mr Green said.
“More importantly though, Steve is passionate about Harcourts. He loves our culture and values and has a very strong level of integrity and caring. I believe he will take our organisation to the next level.”
The change in leadership forms part of a succession plan and aligns with the organisation’s long-term focus on strategic initiatives across digital marketing, technology, training, people and culture, and client experience.
Mr Caradoc-Davies will lead the executive leadership team to support the long-term vision of the business, while continuing to add greater value to the franchise business owners and their teams, who are the foundation of the Harcourts Group.
“First, I must acknowledge the extraordinary achievement Mike has had leading Harcourts for the last 20 years and creating an incredibly successful business, a strong family culture and a vision where people are at the heart of everything we do,” Mr Caradoc-Davies said.
