REIV CEO steps down after 16 years
After 16 years of service, REIV CEO Enzo Raimondo is departing the REIV to take up another opportunity in the property industry.
Mr Raimondo is the REIV’s longest-serving CEO, commencing in the role in 2000. During that time, the REIV has strengthened its profile and expanded its suite of membership services and products.
To ensure continuity within the Institute, REIV President Geoff White will step in as Acting CEO from mid-May, working alongside Mr Raimondo. This will deliver a smooth transition while an executive search for a new CEO takes place.
Mr White acknowledged Mr Raimondo’s significant contribution to the industry – both in Victoria and South Australia where he was previously CEO of the REISA – and said that it provided a solid foundation for the next stage in the REIV’s evolution.
“His efforts are to be commended and have greatly increased the profile of the sector and members’ interests,” he said.
Under Mr Raimondo’s leadership, the REIV has introduced compulsory CPD for members, and launched a range of digital products, including propertydata.com.au and realestateview.com.au.
He added that the REIV “recognises this as a wonderful opportunity to build upon what has been achieved to date, and to ensure continued advancement for the real estate industry’s peak body”.
“We look forward to the future and the next stage in the REIV’s growth,” he said. “We are seeking to build further as an organisation that consistently delivers, to the highest level, on behalf of members statewide.”
