Realogy's Dea Benson Named One Of New Jersey's 'Best 50 Women In Business' By NJBIZ

MADISON, N.J., Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY), a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services, announced today that Dea Benson, senior vice president and chief accounting officer, has been named by NJBIZ as one of New Jersey's Best 50 Women in Business. Selected by an independent panel of judges, the award recognizes women business leaders who are influential in their companies, industries and communities – women who are helping shape the economic future of New Jersey.

"Dea has made considerable contributions as an executive officer of our company and in the community as well," said Richard A. Smith, Realogy's chairman, chief executive officer and president. "We are fortunate to have someone of her character and integrity representing Realogy, and we are proud of her accomplishments."

A certified public accountant, Benson has overseen all corporate accounting and financial reporting functions across Realogy and its business units since she joined the company in 2008. She serves as one of the company's key executive officers in an organization with more than 10,000 employees. As chief accounting officer, Benson played a pivotal role in Realogy's $1.2 billion initial public offering in 2012. Her role was recently expanded to include direct oversight and management responsibility for Realogy's Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) analysis and review process, a cross-functional initiative spanning all units of the company. Working closely with the audit committee of the Realogy Board of Directors, Benson has initiated positive changes to business processes identified during the ERM process that have resulted in numerous best-practice improvements to the company's already strong financial controls environment.

Since relocating to New Jersey from California, Benson has set a strong example for others to follow, becoming involved in not just her community, but a community that was entirely new to her. Benson was appointed to the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross of Northern New Jersey in 2010, and she has served as its treasurer for the past three years. This chapter of the American Red Cross serves a population of 3 million people in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Sussex Counties. Relief efforts for Superstorm Sandy mark the largest U.S. operation by the Red Cross in more than five years, and through the end of November 2013, the Red Cross has spent or made commitments to spend 92 percent of the donations for Sandy, or about $285 million of the $309 million in Sandy donations. 

Benson is now in her fourth year as a member of the Board of Directors for Xceed Financial Credit Union, a federally chartered workplace credit union with 15 financial centers nationwide and approximately 60,000 members and assets of over $800 million. Benson has also served on the Finance and Supervisory Committees of the Board which oversee the financial health of the credit union and its compliance with federal regulations. In 2012, Benson represented Xceed in Washington meetings with legislators on Capitol Hill, advocating for the continued support of the credit union industry.

From 2011 to 2012, Benson also served as the executive chair of Realogy Cares, the headquarters chapter of the Realogy Charitable Foundation. During that time, the Foundation raised and distributed $128,800 directly to the company's 92 impacted employees, brokers and sales associates who applied for assistance, and also donated $60,000 to the American Red Cross general fund for Hurricane Sandy Relief, which included a matching donation of $25,000 from Realogy.
