Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties is proud to announce the appointment of Chris Brown to President of the 21-office real estate brokerage headquartered in Somerset, New Jersey. Previously serving as Executive Vice President and General Sales Manager, Brown is a member of the company’s ownership team along with Bill Keleher, Seymour and Nancy Litwin, and Steve Janett. Keleher, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, made the announcement at the company’s monthly management team meeting in November.

“Since our company rebranded and joined the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network in June of 2014, Chris has taken a larger and more proactive role in business development as it relates to our company’s organic growth and the per person productivity of our agents,” noted Keleher. “He has re-energized our retention and recruitment efforts by working in the field to implement new business coaching and development strategies as well as compensation packages designed to attract and serve the most talented professionals in our marketplace. The results of Chris’ efforts went far beyond my expectations. His promotion to President is richly deserved and represents the game-changing contributions he has made to our company, our bottom line and our vision for continued growth.”

Chris Brown, an industry professional since 1982 and previous President and Owner of Prudential Brown-Fowler Realtors before merging with Keleher and the Litwins’ companies in December of 2000, sees his new position as a mandate for the future.

“I am humbled by Bill’s trust in my leadership and capabilities,” said Brown, “and more committed than ever to realizing our ‘One Thousand Agent March’ to grow our roster to 1,000 full-time associates by the end of 2017, one of the critical goals in our company’s overall business plan. We have an extraordinary brand and value proposition, and alongside my partners and our elite team of department heads, managers and staff, we will make Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties the definitive real estate destination for our agents, our employees and our clients.”
