Scott Durkin, the longtime Corcoran Group manager who jumped to Douglas Elliman earlier this year, has now been named the company’s chief operating officer.

Durkin, a protégé of Barbara Corcoran, joined the brokerage in January as executive vice president of acquisitions and growth. Stephen Kotler, chief revenue officer of Elliman, was formerly the firm’s COO. He moved in January to Los Angeles to head the firm’s West Coast expansion. 

A statement from company CEO Dottie Herman [TRDataCustom] said: “Scott’s experience bridges real estate, management and business. He has truly become an invaluable member of our executive team.”

Durkin worked as a manager at the Pierre Hotel before turning to real estate and working with Corcoran in the late 1990s. At one point, he was COO and senior vice president of Corcoran Florida.

The appointment is the latest shake-up in Elliman’s management team as it expands its footprint nationwide, moving into Aspen and Beverly Hills.

In May, the company’s chief marketing officer Nicole Oge, who’d spearheaded the firm’s all-out marketing blitz over the past two years, resigned. The firm tapped Dana DeVito, formerly vice president of Elliman Experience, to the position of senior vice president of marketing, but her role is said to be different from what Oge’s was.
