Ryan Gorman is leaving his job as CEO of Coldwell Banker, and Sue Yannaccone — Anywhere Brands president and CEO — will step in to replace him. Anywhere Real Estate, based in Madison, NJ, announced the sudden change in top leadership at the close of day Tuesday. 

The company said that Gorman will move into a "strategic advisor role." No other comments were made about his departure.

Sue Yannaccone

In taking over the top leadership role at Coldwell Banker, Yannaccone will be in familiar territory. As Anywhere Brands president and CEO since 2020, Yannaccone already oversees Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Century 21, Corcoran, ERA and Sotheby's International Realty.

Ryan Schneider, Anywhere president and CEO, said that Anywhere will benefit by having a "singular leader" to oversee "our core real estate brokerage business."

Anywhere, formerly known as Realogy, issued a formal statement on the changes at Coldwell Banker as part of a series of C-suite moves at the global real estate company. 

The company described Yannaccone as a veteran real estate leader who joined Anywhere in 2015, serving in several executive positions at its franchise and brokerage operations.

Yannaccone "is consistently recognized as a leader within the industry, including for her contributions helping women in real estate with the 'What Moves Her' campaign she founded," the company said.

In other leadership changes, the company disclosed that Don Casey, president and CEO of Anywhere Integrated Services, is broadening his position to include the Cartus relocation business.

Katrina Helmkamp, current president and CEO of Cartus, announced her retirement, planned for the end of the year.

Schneider said that "Don and Sue are exceptional leaders with deep expertise running multiple successful scaled businesses."

"We believe having a singular leader for our core real estate brokerage business and likewise, for the real estate transaction services we provide, will help Anywhere move even faster, create more value for our customers, and ultimately, deliver a better experience for both affiliated agents and consumers," Schneider said.

Cartus Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Eric Barnes will serve as interim Cartus president and CEO, reporting to Casey.
