KoenigRubloff Home Office Updates!

Wed, Jan 21 2015

Today Chris Eigel announced he will step into the role of Chairman Emeritus. Since entering the business in 1974, Chris has worked tirelessly to build successful brokerages and to raise the standards of practice for all.  His commitment to quality has shaped our organization in countless ways, most notably in becoming Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group.

Chris is eagerly anticipating a role that is focused on the big picture, and we both wish to express our sincere appreciation for his attention to the details for so many years, and his leadership.

“My career spanning over forty years in the various Koenig & Strey, Prudential, Rubloff, and now Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices organizations has been extremely rewarding and fulfilling. Now I look forward to stepping into more of an advisory role with fewer operational duties, and I am thrilled to be able to continue to work with Nancy, Michael, and the rest of the outstanding leadership team. The opportunities afforded by Berkshire Hathaway are truly amazing, and the support and services offered are only going to increase.  The best is yet to come, and I am excited to play a part in it!"  - Chris Eigel, Chairman Emeritus

"Chris has been a great business partner and, more importantly, a friend. His knowledge of the business and long-term perspective are invaluable, and I anticipate many more successful and prosperous years."  - Michael Pierson, President

"I have loved working with Chris during the past two years, and I cherish his wit and wisdom.  I am looking forward to his continuing input and guidance in this very important role." - Nancy Nagy, Chief Executive Officer

Joining Nancy and Michael in executive leadership is Diane Glass who will serve as Chief Operating Officer.  In this role, Diane will skillfully guide our Sales Development, Information Technology, Insurance, Relocation and eLeads departments. Through our Agent Development classes you have all seen Diane’s intelligence, deep understanding of the business and creative approach to problem solving. We are very excited about this broader role, providing her an opportunity to do more to help you build your business.

We are also delighted to share with you the promotion of Patrick Bergner to Chief Marketing Officer and Suzanne Boose to Chief Communications Officer. Both Patrick and Suzanne have been key players in the direction of our company.  It has been so wonderful to be in our offices with them this month and to see your very positive response to the 2015 marketing strategy, the InTouch app and our beautiful new materials.

We are feeling very confident about 2015 and our future.  Please join us in recognizing Chris with this honor, and congratulating Diane, Patrick and Suzanne on their promotions.
