CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intero, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and wholly owned subsidiary of HomeServices of America, Inc., is proud to announce the hiring of Stephen Slater as the Vice President and Managing Officer of the Los Gatos office.
A native of Scotland, Slater moved to Silicon Valley in 1997, while working for Hewlett Packard. During his 23-year career in technology, he also worked in numerous senior leadership roles for Agilent Technologies and Apple. In 2010, he decided to make a radical career change and form a real estate team with his wife Gail Thomson, who was already an established and successful agent. They have been key contributors to the Intero Los Gatos office ever since. In addition, Slater has actively promoted the use of technology in real estate and teaches how to provide outstanding customer service through the effective use of software tools at the Intero Academy.
Stephen and Gail live in Los Gatos with their three children. They are both very actively involved in the community through their public-school PTAs, Los Gatos Youth Theater and boys team charity, a volunteer service organization dedicated to developing an altruistic spirit in young men through active participation of parents and sons in philanthropic projects in their communities.
“I am so excited about this opportunity to step up and apply my management style to the best agents in the industry,” said Stephen Slater, Intero Vice President and Managing Officer. “I am thrilled to be able to continue to work closely with our new leader, Brian Crane, and build on the legacy that he has formulated over the last 17 years.”
Supporting Stephen in his new leadership role will be Assistant Manager, Mike D’Ambrosio, who has served in this position for the last four years.
“I feel one hundred percent comfortable handing over the reins of the Los Gatos office to Stephen,” said Brian Crane, Chief Executive Officer of Intero. “Stephen is uniquely qualified for the role. By leveraging his management experience, real estate knowledge and sense of humor, I know that he will be a great fit for Team Intero LG in these exciting times.”
