Maui real estate broker and president of Realtor.com Mike O’Leary was recently fired by the company after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced.
O’Brien was hired to help with an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct by a former client.
O’Leary, who is the CEO of REALTOR.com, was hired as the new CEO of the company in November after an internal investigation by the firm’s board of director found O’Bryant made inappropriate advances toward a female colleague.
“Realtor has a long history of fostering the trust and respect of our members and their families,” O’Malley said in a statement to The Huffington Press.
“This was a challenging and emotional time for me, but we will be better for it.”
The investigation also included a search for a new CEO, and a board of independent review, which recommended O’Lea, a native of St. Louis, be appointed.
OBrien resigned from his position as chief financial officer at REALTor.io in January.
The resignation was effective immediately.
REALTORS.com has declined to comment on the situation.
The board of the Hawaii Real Estate Association (HREA), which is a real estate board that oversees the real estate industry in Hawaii, said in an internal memo to employees that O’Laverty was hired in August.
The memo did not disclose who hired O’Learys.
A board representative did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
In January, the HREA announced O’Reilly was leaving the board.
The board did not provide further details about his departure.
In May, the realtor’s company fired O’Oleary, who had been with the company since 2010.
In July, the board of RealtyDirect.com hired a former partner to help the company review O’Laughtys past behavior.
O’Laughs attorney, Mike Kugler, told The Huffington Sun the board did the right thing and O’Keefe was fired.
