Anywhere appoints former Fannie Mae chairman to its board of directors

Madison-based Anywhere Real Estate on Thursday said it appointed Egbert L.J. Perry to its board of directors. Perry is currently chairman and CEO of the Integral Group LLC, a real estate and community development and investment management firm.

Perry previously served on the board of directors of Fannie Mae, including as board chairman until 2018. With this appointment, the Anywhere board now consists of 12 directors, 11 of whom are classified as independent directors for purposes of the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange.

“We are delighted to welcome Egbert Perry to the Anywhere board of directors. Egbert is a deeply respected and experienced business leader with extensive knowledge of the real estate and mortgage markets and corporate governance. He brings a wealth of expertise and experiences to our board, and we are fortunate to have him on the Anywhere board,” Michael Williams, chairman of Anywhere (formerly known as Realogy Holdings Corp.), said.

Perry has more than 35 years of real estate experience, including work in urban development; developing and investing in mixed-income, mixed-use communities; affordable and workforce housing; and commercial real estate projects in markets across the U.S.

In 1993, Perry founded the Integral Group LLC, a real estate development, advisory and investment management company based in Atlanta. In 2008, he joined the board of directors of Fannie Mae and, in 2014, was appointed chairman of the board through the end of his tenure in December 2018.
