Wendy Harrington becomes the newest Advisor to SOLO

GoldenKey “has the potential to redefine the real estate industry”

GoldenKey is honored to announce that Wendy Harrington, CMO at Templeton Investments, has officially joined the GoldenKey team as an Advisor.

“GoldenKey is the kind of positive-sum enterprise that has the potential to redefine the real estate industry, while benefiting both sides of the market,” says Harrington. “It’s an exciting proposition, and I’m looking forward to joining a team that has the drive and vision to scale globally.

Wendy Harrington is a lifelong marketing and investment professional with an eye for evolving client needs. She spent twelve years as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company and Coopers & Lybrand Consulting. After three years as COO of Fiduciary Trust, she was named Executive Vice President, Global Marketing Services for Franklin Templeton Investments. As Chief Marketing Officer, Wendy leads a team of over 600 professionals and is responsible for global marketing for the firm, which manages over $900 billion in client assets with offices in 35 countries.

“Wendy’s insight has already proven critical as we refine our understanding of the GoldenKey customer – both buyer and agent,” says GoldenKey Founder and CEO Tommy Sowers.  “Allowing our customers to tailor processes to their individual needs is central to GoldenKey's business model. Wendy’s long experience putting that assumption into action makes her a fantastic addition to the GoldenKey team.”

By unbundling real estate, GoldenKey offers buyers a full 3% rebate on a home purchase and empowers agents to work on their own terms – the services they love, on the schedule they want, at the prices they set.  GoldenKey's pilot launch in Ft. Lauderdale, FL has validated the model as real estate agents flock to GoldenKey's online marketplace to offer à la carte services to buyers. The GoldenKey Founders bring decades of multi-sector leadership and clear vision to GoldenKey, which is rapidly closing out its seed round of investment.
