Today, Easter Seals announced the appointment of Century 21 Real Estate LLC CEO and New Jersey resident Thomas R. Kunz to its international board of directors during the organization’s annual convention in Washington, D.C.
CENTURY 21® began its relationship with Easter Seals in 1979 and since that time has raised nearly $100 million for children and adults with disabilities at Easter Seals. The leadership team at CENTURY 21 International Headquarters has consistently supported the Easter Seals mission.
“Now more than ever, Easter Seals stands as an integral part of the CENTURY 21 culture,” said Thomas R. Kunz, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “I have had the pleasure to be affiliated with the CENTURY 21® System since it named Easter Seals as its official national philanthropic organization in 1979, and I can’t remember a time when I have been prouder of this longstanding partnership.”
Kunz was appointed President and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate LLC in 2004. A 31-year veteran of the real estate industry, Kunz has spent two-thirds of his career affiliated with the CENTURY 21 System, where he established a successful track record involving franchise sales and ownership as well as running all aspects of brokerage and franchise operations.
