Miller, 58, has been a partner at The Group since 1999 and has served on the board of directors for three years. He will continue to sell real estate.

Kendall, 71, will continue to be a resource for Group Realtors through the Ninja Selling organization, a selling-system created in 1994 by Kendall as The Group’s training program. Kendall will still be affiliated with The Group through this training but not involved in day-to-day operations.

“Doug has that great combination of vision and passion for the company while being a calm, cool decision-maker,” Kendall said in a prepared statement. “He has earned great trust among our partners and will be a superb board chair to lead us into the future.”

Miller has been involved with Overland Sertoma Service Club for more than 20 years, as a board member and served as president. He is also a past board member and president of The Children’s Speech and Reading Center, and a past director of the Fort Collins Board of Realtors.

Deanna McCrery will replace Miller on the board, a position she held from 2002 to 2004. She has been affiliated with The Group since 1991.

The Group was founded in 1976 and is an independent, employee-owned company with 230 partners. It has six locations in Fort Collins and Loveland.
