Starting next month, Jeff King will be the new CEO of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV).
He succeeds Brad Scott, who will retire at the end of 2021 after a long career as a senior executive and as CEO since 2013.
Strategy, innovation, licensing, distribution, and corporate planning are among King’s previous experiences. He was the Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada’s COO most recently.
He was also the chair of the board of directors at DDEX, a musical industry standards organization, and served as interim CEO of Dataclef, a provider to music rights organizations.
“It’s a privilege to join an organization with such a rich history in Metro Vancouver,” King says. “In this era of rapid innovation, I look forward to helping REBGV continue to provide world-class technology, tools and services to its members and the home buying and selling public they serve.”
“I’d like to express REBGV’s heartfelt thanks to Brad for serving the Realtors of our region with great distinction for more than four decades. Across Canada, he’s been regarded as a leader in the real estate profession for a generation,” says REBGV Chair Taylor Biggar. “We have been well-served under Brad’s leadership. REBGV has been a positive voice for change and growth in Greater Vancouver for over a century. With the experience, talent and leadership that Jeff brings to the CEO role, we’re excited to see the next chapter unfold.”
REBGV’s represents about 14,000 real estate agents and their firms and covers all of the Tri-Cities and North Shore communities, as well as Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond, Pitt Meadows, Sunshine Coast, and the Sunshine Coast.
