Geoff Lewis

President, RE/MAX

Overall Rank: 14
Category: Corporate Execs
Category Rank: 7

Lewis provides strategic direction for RE/MAX (NASDAQ: RMAX), which has over 110,000 agent affiliates in more than 95 countries and territories who do over 1 million annual transactions. He joined RE/MAX in 2004 as senior vice president, general counsel, and less than a year later became the firm’s chief legal officer. He became chief legal and compliance officer in 2014, before becoming president in May 2015.

Although RE/MAX had an interesting year – which saw its revenue drop in the third quarter from a year ago – it grew one of its most important metrics, agent count, by 7.4 percent. Lewis undoubtedly helped increase those numbers. Prior to joining RE/MAX, Lewis served as senior vice president for multi-billion-dollar global manufacturing, marketing and sales company, Hyster-Yale Inc. Geoff earned a master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Colorado in 1994, and a law degree from the University of Virginia in 1983.
