October 30, 2013 // Franchising.com // MADISON, N.J. - Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY), a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services, announced that Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer Anthony E. Hull today received the 2013 NJBIZ CFO of the Year award in the category of Public Company with Revenues over $250 million. For full-year 2012, Realogy reported net revenue of $4.7 billion, a 14% year-over-year increase.
"We accomplished a dramatic turnaround through a tremendous team effort involving everyone at Realogy," said Hull. "Following on the heels of our IPO, we have been able to capitalize on the housing market recovery, which is still in its early stages."
Hull, who has served as Realogy’s CFO since 2006, helped lead a highly leveraged business through the housing downturn while proactively adjusting its financial structure through a series of strategic refinancing transactions. The culmination of these efforts was Realogy’s $1.2 billion initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in October 2012 and related transactions that reduced the Company’s indebtedness by $3.1 billion, or approximately 42%, at year-end 2012 compared to 2011.
Prior to joining Realogy, Hull was executive vice president of finance for Cendant Corporation from 2003 to 2006, and served seven years as chief financial officer for DreamWorks LLC. Before DreamWorks, Hull held senior financial executive positions at Paramount Communications and worked as an investment banker at Morgan Stanley & Co., Inc. He received his bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and his MBA in finance and accounting from Columbia University Graduate School of Business.
The 2013 NJBIZ CFO of the Year award winners were recognized at an awards ceremony on Oct. 29, 2013 at The Palace in Somerset Park in Somerset, N.J.
