Franchise System President Combines Hard Work, Tech Savvy
Patrick van den Bossche brings an atypical background to his role as president of Realty Executives International, the Arizona-based franchise system with 500 offices and 8,000 agents.
Van den Bossche’s resume includes stints at companies such as Barrett-Jackson Auction Co., the firm known for high-end auto sales, and Echo Automotive Inc.
But van den Bossche — who was named this year to a top job at Realty Executives — is quick to point out that he has held a real estate license since 2005. And he says manufacturing isn’t so different from real estate.
