As chief financial officer and chief collaboration officer of eXp World Holdings, Jeff Whiteside has driven the company’s financial growth, catalyzed its international expansion and overseen key acquisitions and leadership hires. Since Whiteside joined the company in 2018, eXp has grown from a residential real estate company to a technology company with complementary subsidiaries — all with a focus on powering the new economy. Whiteside has played a crucial role in elevating eXp’s financial performance, with revenue growing 100% year-over-year and valuation increasing from $650 million in Q4 2018 to more than $7 billion at the beginning of 2021.
Under Whiteside’s leadership, eXp Realty welcomed more than 15,000 agents to the eXp family in 2020, expanded operations into five new countries and grew its commercial business. Additionally, he helped scale Virbela (eXp World Holdings’ virtual world platform), which saw a 78% increase in new users over Q2, and 50% new user growth in international markets in Q3.
