In late 2017, Koberlein stepped into the national role of president of the Central Region for HomeServices of America, now oversee - ing nine HomeServices companies: Realty South; Roberts Brothers; Ebby Halliday Companies; Allie Beth Allman; CBS Home; Berkshire Hathaway Ambassador; HomeServices of Nebraska; Kentwood; and Long Companies. "This widening of my responsibilities has given me a new perspective of different company models, their hurdles and their successes," says Koberlein. "I consider it a major ac - complishment to coach these fellow CEOs." Koberlein brings 30 years of real estate experience to the role, and before real estate, was the director of Employ - ment and Training for the city of Cleveland. She received a Masters of Public Administration from Kent State University and is a Certified Residential Broker (CRB). Actively involved on community boards, and the winner of numerous awards, Koberlein's heart resides in real estate. "The real estate world is perfect for me," she says. "No two days are alike. This is not the profession for a maintenance attitude. As CEO, I challenge myself and everyone around me to be their best and grow continuously—a personal and professional growth." ROSEY KOBERLEIN CEO, Long Companies; President, Central Region, HomeServices of America A s Executive Vice President of Global Strategic Al- liances for RE/MAX, Mike Ryan has been a lead- ing voice at RE/MAX and a tireless advocate for the real estate industry and the consumers it serves. In 2018, Ryan helped RE/MAX reach all-time highs in agent count, office count and global presence. Ryan's many accomplishments over the course of his 25-year career with the firm include: directing the launch of the RE/MAX Satellite Network in 1994, the industry's first-ever business television network; working with U.S. government officials on housing policies to address chal - lenges facing distressed homeowners from 2008 – 2009; and overseeing brand marketing, PR and communication efforts in the IPO of RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. In 2017, Ryan received the RISMedia National Leadership Award. "Great things happen when talented people come to - gether and work toward a common goal," says Ryan. "Al- ways think big—really big—and when you see a 'home run' opportunity, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. Timing, teamwork and execution separate the true newsmakers from the pack." Ryan recently announced his retirement from RE/MAX as of Jan. 2, 2019, after which he will act in an advisory capacity for the company. "I've been fortunate to be part of the premier brand in the world," he said in a statement. "I've learned something new every step of the way." MIKE RYAN Executive Vice President, RE/MAX LLC
