(NYSE:RMAX), parent company of RE/MAX, and Motto Mortgage, announced that veteran financial executive Katie Scherping has been appointed to the Company's Board of Directors and will serve on the finance & investment and audit committees. Having served as the CFO for several public and private companies for nearly 20 years, Scherping is a qualified financial expert bringing additional deep leadership, accounting and managerial experience to the RE/MAX Holdings Board.
“Katie’s leadership track record of guiding well-known companies through transformative growth initiatives should be incredibly valuable as the Company navigates the shifting market,” said Dave Liniger, Chairman of the Board & RE/MAX Co-Founder. “Her enthusiasm and passion for success meets the energy and momentum RE/MAX Holdings remains focused on maintaining.”
Currently, Scherping is a board member of Turtle Beach Corporation, serving as a member of the audit committee and chair of the nominating and governance committee for one of the world’s leading gaming accessory providers. Previously, Scherping was also a board member, nominating and governance committee member and audit committee chair of Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. While on the board, she collaborated to successfully identify and hire a new Chief Executive Officer and a new Chief Financial Officer, effectively positioned the pizza company to be sold, and with her expertise on the audit committee, provided quality oversight of the Company’s adoption of the new revenue recognition and lease accounting standards.
Scherping retired as the CFO of National CineMedia, Inc. in March 2020 where she was instrumental in providing leadership to the company as it developed its integrated digital strategy at a time of significant disruption in the traditional media industry. Before that, she served as the CFO for Quiznos and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers where she was responsible for the finance and accounting functions, investor relations, and information technology. While there, she led the organization through the negotiation of several successful acquisitions and operational integrations.
Earlier in her career, she was an auditor with Arthur Andersen. Demonstrating her ability to contribute quickly and deeply in a variety of industries, she has held various financial management positions with companies in the oil and gas industry, home building and real estate development, security alarm monitoring, telecommunications, technology, and restaurant industries.
“I’m excited to join the RE/MAX Holdings Board of Directors, and I look forward to working closely with senior leadership as well as the other Board members on our joint mission to further support the Company’s initiatives,” Scherping said.
Scherping is the recipient of several professional awards including being named a Titan 100 CEO in 2020. She is a CPA, CGMA and National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) leadership fellow. She also serves as an active member of Financial Executives International and the American Institute of CPAs. Scherping holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Northern Illinois University.
Scherping will succeed Joe DeSplinter who in September announced his intention to retire upon the appointment of his successor, after serving the Board for seven years.
“On behalf of the Board of the Directors, I want to thank Joe for his time and dedication to RE/MAX Holdings,” said Liniger. “His financial expertise and attention to detail made him an especially valuable voice on the finance & investment and audit committees, and his well-reasoned advice has been instrumental in fortifying the Company's foundation.”
