BELLINGHAM, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB: EXPI), the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage, announced today that Darren Jacklin, an internationally-recognized expert on business, has been elected to the Company's Board of Directors.
"I've consulted to and worked previously with a number of well-known and excellent companies in the real estate industry," said Jacklin, who officially becomes eXp Realty's first outside director. "I am familiar with many of the challenges that the industry has faced over time and which have been largely insoluble. I get very excited when I see an opportunity to lend expertise to an organization that has the potential to deliver value and business opportunity to an entire industry. I see that potential clearly in eXp with its offerings to agents and brokers through its agent-ownership opportunities and technology, but also to brokerage-owners looking to increase profitability, give their agents what it is they need to be competitive, and develop an exit strategy."
For over 19 years, Mr. Jacklin has traveled four continents and over 40 countries mentoring entrepreneurs and business owners on specific and measurable strategies that they can consistently use to increase income, transform obstacles into cash flow and turn passion into profits. His ability to increase wealth and success by uncovering hidden assets, overlooked opportunities and undervalued possibilities has captured the attention of Tiger 21, The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, NBC TV, CBS TV, Global TV international radio stations, magazines and newspapers, movie producers, best-selling authors, CEOs and business experts worldwide. Jacklin has personally trained over 150 Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, AT&T, Black & Decker and Barclays Bank, in addition to high school, college, university students and professional athletes, and has connected with people in more than 126 countries.
"With the election of Darren to our Board, eXp Realty has added someone who brings a wealth of experience and rich expertise in a broad range of business settings to our company," said Chairman Glenn Sanford.
As a cloud-based, full-service real estate brokerage company, eXp Realty provides 24/7 access to collaborative tools, training and socialization for real estate brokers and agents through its 3-D, fully-immersive, cloud office environment, while reducing their overhead, increasing their profits, and providing greater service value to consumers.
