John Brennan is set to take on an additional executive role at Realogy Holdings Corporation, the parent company of NRT and a number of real estate franchises including Coldwell Banker, Better Homes and Gardens and Century 21.
Brennan, who joined the company in 2017, was named Monday as the company’s chief ethics and compliance officer – in addition to continuing his duties as chief audit officer – filling the void left when Liz Gehringer was promoted to chief operating officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
“We are pleased to have John Brennan expand his leadership role to include our ethics and compliance department,” said Marilyn Wasser, Realogy’s executive vice president and general counsel. “Ethics is a core value at Realogy and, with his extensive experience in the areas of internal controls, compliance, risk management, and corporate governance, John is well-positioned to maintain the same tradition of excellence and integrity established by Liz Gehringer and her team.”
Under Gehringer, Realogy was named among the Ethisphere Institute’s most ethical companies for seven consecutive years. Brennan will take control of the department while continuing to oversee Realogy’s enterprise risk management program and internal audit.
Prior to joining Realogy, Brennan worked at Pearson for four years as a senior vice president for internal audit and compliance.
