EXp Realty’s parent company eXp World Holdings announced changes to its executive leadership team on Thursday.

The company has hired Jeff Whiteside to serve in a dual role as chief financial officer and chief collaboration officer.

Alan Goldman, previously the CFO of both eXp Realty and eXp World Holdings, will still serve as the brokerage’s CFO. He’ll now step down as CFO of eXp World Holdings, the parent company, but take a new position within it: chief accounting officer.

Whiteside comes to eXp World Holdings with 30 years of finance and operations experience, which included running divisions at General Electric and integrating acquisitions at Pitney Bowes.

He’ll be tasked with leading finance, business development, mergers and acquisitions, new ventures, international markets and investor relations. He’ll work closely with CEO Glenn Sanford.

“With [Whiteside] assuming a dual role of CFO and chief collaboration officer of eXp World Holdings, we are really excited to have him accelerate our stated goal of agile at scale,” Sanford said, in a release.

“[Whiteside] brings CFO, COO and international experience to eXp as well as a successful track record of implementing renowned business practices to growth-stage, technology-driven companies that are looking to scale globally and build a sustainable future,” he added. “He is a proven leader and someone who matches up well with our core values.”

Whiteside’s experience working on acquisitions at Pitney Bowes could mean eXp Realty could get more aggressive in the merger and acquisition space in the coming weeks and months. A spokesperson for eXp Realty declined to directly address if that was the case.

Last month, the company announced it signed a letter of intent to acquire VirBELA, the company that creates its virtual world.

Goldman has eXp Realty’s CFO since May 2016, and will continue his role in the same capacity but with additional duties as chief accounting officer of eXp World Holdings. He started as an independent consultant with the company in 2013.

“Both agents and staff respect [Goldman] for his passion, knowledge and strategic outlook,” said Sanford. “We are fortunate to have Alan focused on our primary business unit, eXp Realty. Since the day Alan joined, he has helped grow the company to where it is today and will continue to put many of the systems and processes in place to steward the entire company on the right path.”
