Realogy Holdings Corp., a Madison-based real estate services company, announced Friday that Anthony E. Hull is retiring from his role as executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer, effective Nov. 5.

Hull, who’s been with Realogy for 15 years, will remain employed and serve as a senior advisor to Ryan M. Schneider, CEO and president, until March 31, 2019.

“It has been a privilege to work with a standout team of leaders throughout my tenure at Realogy, and the decision to step away from my role during this time of exciting change at the company did not come without much thought and contemplation,” Hull said. “However, I believe the time is right. Realogy is well positioned for the future, and I am fully confident in the capable leadership of Ryan, Tim and my entire organization to help guide the company through its next chapter of growth and evolution.”

As part of the transition, Realogy has appointed Timothy B. Gustavson as interim CFO and treasurer, adding to his current duties as senior vice president, chief accounting officer and corporate controller, effective Nov. 5 as well.

Realogy said it will retain an executive search firm to begin the CFO search.

“Tony has had a tremendous positive impact on Realogy over the past 15 years,” Schneider said. “He has helped Realogy navigate through both market booms and downturns, including the Great Recession. He led Realogy’s successful 2012 IPO, and since then has guided Realogy as a public company. He has been a strategic and valued partner to our business leaders, and I appreciate his supporting my own recent transition as CEO. Tony leaves Realogy with a strong balance sheet and a deep bench of financial talent. I am grateful that he has agreed to continue with the company as a senior advisor to ensure a smooth transition.”
