Cofano, an industry veteran of more than 25 years, joined eXp in June 2016 as chief strategy officer and general counsel. In September 2016 he was promoted to the position of president.

The company announced his departure on Friday, Inman learned.

“I was brought into eXp to take it from ‘startup to enterprise’ and was given the opportunity during this time to add important structure and process and to assemble an all-star management team,” Cofano said in a written statement. “I wish Glenn [Sanford, eXp founder] and team continued great success as they explore new directions into the future.”

His statement did not explain why he chose to leave the company.

However, eXp spokesman Mitch Robinson said, “Glenn has elected to move the company toward a more holocratic organizational structure tied to eXp’s agent-owned business model. In light of this, Russ has elected to move on to other opportunities.”

In a statement, Sanford said, “Russ moved eXp forward in ways I could not have even anticipated, bringing important processes and key staff aboard as we manage unprecedented growth today and into the future. Our entire team and our agents thank Russ for his efforts and wish him well in his next adventure.”
