Philadelphia Metro Area Real Estate Team

One of the top Real Estate Companies in the Philadelphia Metro Market is seeking a Chief Operating Officer (COO) “Integrator” to help them position the business for its next chapter of growth. As a successful candidate, you will be equally comfortable in the conference room as rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty to solve problems. Your focus will be on results, yet understand it takes a village to deliver them. You know how to marshal support for your plans, and your follow-through is key to who you are.

As the COO, you’ll execute the business plan and achieve P&L results by leading, managing, and holding the team accountable for agreed-upon commitments. You’ll remove obstacles and barriers, manage major projects, standardize and systematize work, and integrate all major functions of the business. You’ll work with the Founder to filter and translate ideas into the functional plans of the business. The COO will report to the Founder and have responsibility for managing all areas of the business including Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, HR, and Administration. 

As COO you are the second in command, supporting the Founder and strengthening their weaknesses. This relationship is the most important in the organization, benefitting the company by bringing the best leadership to the forefront. You relish the opportunity to be provided with the company's Vision and then turn it into something real. You can translate the company vision into something others can understand and get on board with—laying a solid foundation for execution. You can recognize the need for operational policy, structures, and repeatability to make the Vision a reality. 

Open to all candidates currently residing in or willing to relocate to the Philadelphia area.
