People on the Move: eXp names chief learning officer
Bryon Ellington, who has held executive roles at Century 21, Anywhere and KW during his 20-year career, will lead training and coaching initiatives.
Editor's note: As an industry with millions of agents and over 100,000 brokerage companies, new leaders rise to the top every day. Here we highlight executives and other notable leaders who've recently taken on, or stepped away from, roles that influence the residential real estate landscape.
Bryon Ellington to lead training and education at eXp
eXp has expanded its executive lineup, tapping industry veteran Bryon Ellington for the newly created position of chief learning officer.
Ellington has occupied the C-suite at several major brokerage companies during his more than 20 years in real estate. As an executive at Keller Williams, he held the roles of chief product officer and chief learning officer, as well as chief operations officer for KW Worldwide.
Most recently, he led multiple divisions at Century 21 as the company's chief development officer before founding a consulting firm in October 2022.
In his new role at eXp, Ellington will lead initiatives around training and coaching. The brokerage currently offers training through its eXp University and has a mentoring program for newer agents.
"Bryon's dedication to agent success aligns perfectly with our values, and he excels at driving growth and new revenue streams," said Glenn Sanford, eXp Realty founder and CEO, in a news release. "Under his leadership, eXp Realty will become the leading brokerage in training, with a focus on delivering the best education and resources to help our agents excel."
The addition of a chief learning officer aligns with eXp's continued emphasis on attracting new agents and helping them reap the benefits of revenue sharing. The company recently made it easier for newer agents to get a leg up through its Accelerate program, which enables agents to move to a higher revenue share tier sooner.
