The Real Brokerage Inc. Names Andrew Kazeniac Chief Operating Officer

TORONTO & NEW YORK–The Real Brokerage Inc. (TSX: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, recently announced Andrew Kazeniac has been appointed Chief Operating Officer. As COO, Kazeniac will be responsible for driving operational efficiencies and continuing to enhance the level of service provided to Real agents through its technology platform.

Kazeniac brings nearly 15 years of experience in key operations and customer service roles at fast-growth companies in rapidly changing industries. Most recently, he served as Vice President of Retail Operations at Drizly, the world’s largest alcohol marketplace, where he spent six years taking on various leadership roles and responsibilities. Earlier, he held operations and customer service roles at both TripAdvisor and FlipKey.

“Our rapid agent growth and addition of mortgage and title capabilities puts Real at an important crossroad in our growth trajectory, especially as we expect to see more real estate professionals gravitate to our performance-oriented platform in the current environment,” said Real Chairman and CEO Tamir Poleg. “Andy’s operational experience and customer-first approach will be a valuable addition to our team as we set the stage for our continued growth.”

While at Drizly, Kazeniac grew retail operations from a small service team in Boston to a complex, multi-team group working closely with more than 6,000 retail locations across the United States. He and his teams coordinated closely with partners and product teams to build efficient logistics tools, including integrated partnerships with national couriers and data-based recommendations to grow retailer and Drizly revenue. Kazeniac replaces Raj Naik, who recently left Real to pursue other opportunities.

“It’s an exciting time to be joining Real. The introduction of technology to make processes more efficient and improve the experience for agents and their customers is long overdue for the industry, and 2022 is shaping up to be a pivotal year at Real,” Kazeniac said. “Both the travel and food delivery industries have undergone sweeping changes in recent years, and my experience driving operational efficiencies and customer satisfaction align with Real’s growth objectives. There is a great foundation and community in place at Real, and I’m looking forward to working closely with the leadership team to continue to deliver value to our rapidly expanding agent base.”

Kazeniac holds an MBA from the University of Massachusetts and a bachelor’s degree from Loyola University, Baltimore.
