How do you expand operations to a dozen new countries in a year when travel is often impossible, communication is hampered and global supply networks are flailing? The answer is, you turn to Chris Dietz. Leveraging a diverse toolset of virtual connections, regional networking and education opportunities and a global symposium in Dubai, Dietz saw Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) expanding in Canada, Cyprus, Dubai, France, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Montenegro, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom under his watch. Near the end of an incredibly difficult year, the symposium in October was a reminder for Dietz that through incredible diversity, his innovative planning and hard work had paid off.
“Standing on stage and looking out at the faces of the people who came from all corners of the world was a tangible reminder of what our network is all about,” he says. “These are like-minded people who immediately connect, whether they are new to our community or long-term members. The connections are real and impactful, which is incredibly gratifying.”
