Rick Yohn focuses on the network’s growth and success within the Eastern Hemisphere – particularly Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. His combination of education and experience in cross-cultural business development make him uniquely qualified for this leadership role.
Rick joined RE/MAX in 2003 as Franchise Development Consultant for the RE/MAX Southwest Region and was quickly promoted to Assistant Regional Director of that same region. Three years later, he was offered a unique position in the Far East, which he embraced whole-heartedly: Managing Director, RE/MAX China Development Company – a position he held for nearly two years. His relationship-building efforts set a foundation for future RE/MAX development in that nation.
In 2011, Rick became Region Vice President, International Development, following a two-year period in which he served as Assistant Regional Director of RE/MAX Pacific Northwest and Regional Vice President, Regional Director of RE/MAX California & Hawaii.
Rick was born in Minneapolis, Minn., and raised in Fresno, Calif. He started his career with RE/MAX after 12 years as Lead Pastor in South Bend, Ind., during which time he earned his Master of Science in Administration from the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. Rick’s academic background also includes a Master of Theology degree in Cross-Cultural Anthropology from the Dallas Theological Seminary and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Wheaton College in Illinois.
Rick and his wife, Aly, live in the Denver area, and he is the proud father of four stepchildren. Rick has a black belt in taekwondo and has completed numerous marathons and more than three dozen triathlons.
