Seattle-based Kidder Mathews completed its three-year succession plan and appointed the firm’s President and COO, Bill Frame, to CEO, and Brian Hatcher, former Regional President of Brokerage, to President and COO. Jeff Lyon, who has served as Chairman and CEO for 20 years, will remain Chairman of the firm.
Frame, who has been a top producing broker, has served on the board, and has had various leadership roles in his 28-year career at Kidder said, “This is an important period of expansion for our company, and I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Kidder Mathews at such an exciting time. We’ve grown dramatically from four offices in Washington to 22 offices in five states with 900 people.”
Hatcher has been with the firm 23 years, nine of them as President of Brokerage, and has been instrumental in assisting with the firm’s strategy and growth. Hatcher will be responsible for the 450-person brokerage infrastructure and its growth across all regions and corporate operations. “We really do have an attractive culture here, and I’m grateful to have such a key role in upholding it. It’s long been the advantage that allows us to attract and retain some of the best professionals in the industry,” said Hatcher.
