From Austin Board of Realtors:

It is with great pleasure we announce that Interim CEO Emily Chenevert has been named CEO of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, effective immediately.

After getting to know Emily over the last several years and working in close partnership with her over the last few months, the Board made a strong and united decision. We couldn’t be more pleased that Emily has agreed to accept this position.

As you may know, there had been an intention to undertake a national search for a new CEO. However, after much careful deliberation and our months of work side by side with Emily, we decided to forego the expense and time it would take to undergo such a search because we know we have the ideal candidate in-house.

We are extremely impressed with her deep knowledge of ABoR’s operations, local market dynamics, and the trends impacting Associations and MLSs across the country. She understands what our members need and want from their Association, and she has a long track record of advocating for REALTORS® at all levels of government. She is also the first female CEO hired by the Austin Board of REALTORS®.

In short, particularly given the highly competitive nature of our industry, we are very lucky to have Emily at the helm of ABoR. We are excited to see what the future will bring for ABoR under her leadership.

Please join us in congratulating Emily on her new position. To learn more about Emily’s background and read the public release of this announcement, visit If you’d like to contact her directly, please call (512) 454-7636, ext. 1000 or email
