Here's the man behind the National Association of Realtors' CEO hunt

Job description and search firm choice indicate that the association seeks an experienced, collaboration-friendly exec
  • The National Association of Realtors has tapped an expert in association executive hires at search firm Heidrick & Struggles to help find NAR's new CEO.
  • Based on the job description and the firm's research on what makes a top association executive, it looks like NAR is seeking a candidate with a great deal of experience in association or high-level management (though not necessarily in real estate) who's willing to build relationships with policymakers, members and the industry as a whole.

The recruiting firm tapped to find a COO for troubled CEO Travis Kalanick of Uber fame is the same company on the hunt for the National Association of Realtors’ next leader.
