Less than a week after announcing a series of key executive shifts, Realogy on Wednesday announced the appointment of Dave Gordon as executive vice president, chief technology officer, at the massive real estate conglomerate, which counts Coldwell Banker and Century 21 among its brands.

Gordon, a 20-year technology veteran, will report directly to recently installed Realogy CEO and President Ryan Schneider, a former Capital One executive who took the reins early last week, replacing outgoing CEO Richard Smith.

Previously, Gordon served as U.S. Chief Technology & Operations Officer at BMO Financial, and before that he worked at Capital One as a chief information officer while Schneider was still on board at the company.

Gordon will replace Stephen Fraser in the position, according to a release issued last week.

“Dave Gordon brings a strong business background with substantial expertise transforming and building leading-edge technology organizations, building digital products and recruiting great talent,” said Schneider in a prepared statement. “He is an innovative leader who will be responsible for our technology transformation and working closely with Realogy’s other business leaders to help drive our aggressive change agenda.”

The move comes on the heels of a corporate restructuring announced last week that included the appointment of Ryan Gorman as president and chief executive officer of the residential brokerage NRT. Gorman, who previously served as chief strategy and operating officer at the firm, replaced Bruce Zipf, who will transition to the role of executive advisor to Schneider.

John Peyton, meanwhile, was named as president and chief executive officer of Realogy Franchise Group, the company’s real estate franchise services segment. As president and CEO, Peyton will continue to oversee business at Corcoran and Sotheby’s International Realty.

“I am excited to join Realogy and help lead the changes that will enable the company to fully leverage its technology and data scale and increase the use of analytics in an integrated manner across business lines,” Gordon said in a statement on Wednesday. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to work with Ryan Schneider and the Realogy leadership and technology teams as we focus on driving a technology transformation intended to improve business results.”

Schneider himself will have a chance to explain more about his decision-making and where he sees Realogy headed next at Inman Connect NY later this month, where he will be giving his first public talk as Realogy CEO.

Realogy operates a number of business units and brands, many of which are well-known in real estate and beyond. Beside Century 21, Coldwell Banker, Sotheby’s International, Corcoran and NRT, these include:

  • Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate
  • ERA
  • ZipRealty
  • Cartus
  • Title Resource Group
  • ZapLabs, Realogy’s technology development subsidiary
