Kent Cheng joined eXp World Holdings as global controller in June 2020. However, the company had bigger plans for him as he was promoted to chief accounting officer (CAO) just one year later. In his role as CAO, Cheng oversees finance operations for eXp World Holdings and its subsidiaries, including the cloud-based international real estate brokerage eXp Realty; Virbela — an immersive 3-D platform that enables agents to be more connected and productive in the metaverse; and SUCCESS Enterprises.
In 2021, Cheng was instrumental in scaling the finance team as the company grew from 41,000 agents across nine countries to more than 70,000 agents across 18 countries. He helped the company navigate foreign market securities and taxation laws earning eXp recognition from the Global Equity Organization in November 2021. Cheng oversaw the third quarter 2021 earnings report that announced record revenue of $1.1 billion, which was a 97% increase from the third quarter of 2020.
