Vermont-based Keller Williams mega team Livian has named former eXp Realty executive Thad Fisher as its new senior vice president of revenue. Fisher will spearhead Livian’s growth strategy and market center team expansion efforts alongside improving sales processes.
“We proudly welcome Thad, a world-class leader, to Livian,” Livian President Jon Boller said in a written statement late Monday. “A proven industry trailblazer, his insight and innovative approach will be instrumental in growing our agents’ businesses and accelerating Livian’s expansion.”
Before joining Livian, Fisher was the vice president of global growth at eXp Realty. During his five-month tenure, Fisher guided the brokerage’s international recruitment and retention strategy, which includes 24 countries across North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
Fisher held several high-ranking business consulting, strategy and global development roles at Anywhere Real Estate and Zillow from 2015 to 2021, and was pivotal to Corcoran’s expansion beyond New York City. Fisher ventured into the world of strategic sales with leadership roles at Talkwalker and Wiliot, before returning to real estate in June 2023 with his role at eXp.
“I’m thrilled and honored to join Livian, where we are incredibly focused on our mission to partner with the most talented teams in the country, vastly elevating production and optimizing the full spectrum of their businesses,” Fisher said in a written statement. “As the revenue leader, the opportunity to drastically impact the state of our industry is a privilege.”
He added, “Livian agents are the highest caliber of professionals who will continue to create a momentous shift in customer experiences around the world.”
Livian CEO Adam Hergenrother said Fisher will be key to bolstering the company’s customer-focused initiatives as the company continues to leverage its franchisor’s financial backing. Keller Williams purchased an undisclosed ownership stake in Livian in October 2021.
“Thad brings a wealth of experience and expertise to propel our organization to new heights,” Hergenrother said. “His dedication to understanding the needs of our agents will be a driving force behind our customer-focused initiatives.”
Fisher is Livian’s second major hire of the year, with the company naming former Side executive Jon Boller as its first-ever president in July. Livian offers its agents and teams full-scale marketing services, diversified lead generation levers, automated conversion strategies, human resources and talent acquisition support, fiscal reporting and accounting, and prescriptive training and coaching.
“Since forging a partnership with Livian last October, we’ve experienced a remarkable transformation,” Livian Texas (formerly The Moats Team) leader Bobby Moats said in a prepared statement. “We’ve cut our operational costs in half, thanks to the economies of scale that Livian effortlessly brings.”
“More importantly, we’ve tripled our agent roster, creating a robust team poised to take market share in the shifting market,” he added. “Despite the shift, we’ve maintained and amplified our production levels.”
Over the past 12 months, Livian has secured two high-level mergers with teams in New England and the Southeast. Livian has 67 real estate teams in 31 states, representing more than 790 agents nationwide.
