After a few months as head of Coldwell Banker Realty, CEO Kamini Lane has promoted a number of new executives who will helm new streamlined regions in a national reorganization of the brokerage, TRD has learned.

The revamp involves “the unification of multiple Coldwell Banker Realty operating metros into regions” run by regional presidents who will focus on developing new business and the agent experience, according to the company.

Jennifer Lind, Coldwell’s Northern California president since 2020, was promoted to the company’s new role of Western regional president. Lind will run 124 offices in Northern and Southern California, along with Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest, according to a Coldwell announcement.  

Robert Burns, president of Coldwell Banker Bain in Washington and Oregon, and Mike James, regional vice president of Coldwell Banker Realty in Hawaii, will report to Lind.
