CHICAGO, IL – (03/11/16) – Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® has named two prominent industry brokers to its board of directors. Carol Bulman, chief executive officer and president of Jack Conway & Company in Norwell, Mass., and Ron Stader, president and co-owner of CIR Realty in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, join the 13-person board. The board of directors provides guidance and leadership for the global community of 500+ market-leading real estate firms, which produce over one million annual home sale transactions.
With more than 25 years of experience in mortgage banking and real estate, Bulman is the daughter of her company’s founder, the late Jack Conway.

The company is also among the top 10 brokerage firms in Canada.
