Vice President of RE/MAX to provide students with industry insight and experience 

The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business today announced the appointment of Diana Fredericks of RE/MAX to be an Executive in Residence at the Franklin L. Burns School of Real Estate and Construction Management (Burns), beginning in the Spring quarter of 2013. The Daniels Executives in Residence program offers a strategic opportunity for working, semi-retired or retired business leaders to provide an in-depth complement to classroom learning. Executives in Residence share their own experiences in creating and managing successful enterprises in diverse fields to help educate ethical business leaders.  

Diana Fredericks is Vice President of the Southwest Region at RE/MAX, the real estate industry leader with over 6,000 locations worldwide, and is responsible for franchise sales growth and strategy, including mergers and acquisition. For the Burns School, she will serve as a student mentor, participate as a guest lecturer in classrooms and in panel discussions, offer industry insight for Burns’ classes, and provide networking opportunities for students to learn more about areas of the industry and possible internships.

“The Daniels Executive in Residence program features exceptional business leaders who want to make a difference in how business evolves,” said Daniels Dean Christine Riordan. “For RE/MAX, Diana focuses on the business side of real estate, which is the cornerstone of the Burns academic program, but her work has always been intertwined with a high standard of ethics. She also has in-depth experience in the area of national mergers and acquisitions to provide our students a much more sophisticated understanding of these complex transactions.”

“We’re thrilled with the appointment of Diana Fredericks to the Executives in Residence program,” said Andrea Matousek, director, Daniels Corporate and Community Relations. “She has been active in franchising for a major real estate organization, and that level of experience will provide an extraordinary national perspective for Burns students.”
