Two Realogy Leaders Receive 2015 Women Worth Watching Awards

Profiles in Diversity Journal Honors Kate Rossi of NRT LLC and Wendy Purvey, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates

MADISON, N.J. - Oct. 13, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Realogy Holdings Corp., a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services, today announced that two executives at the company have been named among the "Women Worth Watching for 2015," by Profiles of Diversity Journal. Kate Rossi, executive vice president for NRT's Southeast Region, and Wendy Purvey, chief marketing officer, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates, received the prestigious honor for demonstrating outstanding achievement and leadership in their careers.

"This recognition is a tribute to Kate Rossi and Wendy Purvey who excel at raising the bar with each new business challenge they set for themselves and our company," said Richard A. Smith, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Realogy. "We are proud of their achievements and contributions to our company and the real estate industry."

Rossi, whose real estate career spans more than 32 years, is a hands-on leader in the field, working side-by-side with sales associates and employees to teach, mentor and build the business from the ground up. In her role, she oversees the leadership of 140 offices and more than 8,300 sales associates in six states. Last year, she was instrumental in the acquisition of several brokerages, expanding Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage's reach into new markets.

Purvey, a 29-year industry veteran, leads the marketing, interactive digital, advertising and public relations initiatives for the Sotheby's International Realty® network. Among many other notable accomplishments, she is credited with spearheading the brand's collaboration with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite that allowed for its marketing program to be available for agents to deliver their listing presentations via a unique digital format that has traditionally been utilized by the world's publishing powerhouses.

The 13th Annual Women Worth Watching Award recipients are featured in Profiles in Diversity Journal's "Women Worth Watching" September/October issue, in which the winners provided their first-person accounts of lessons learned during their careers. Since 2012, there have been five executives honored from Realogy with this award.

Nominated by their employers for their passion, their potential, and their positive influence both inside and outside the workplace, the winners represent corporations, government agencies, and nonprofits from across North America and Europe. Profiles in Diversity Journal® is a bimonthly magazine dedicated to promoting and advancing diversity and inclusion in the corporate, government, nonprofit, higher education, and military sectors.
