Keller Williams UK replaces chief executive in latest restructure

Keller Williams UK (KWUK) is set to change its chief executive in the latest restructure of the self-employed agency brand.

Ben Taylor will be replaced as chief executive by KWUK’s regional director Mark Readings in October, the company said in a statement.

Taylor will take on the role of executive chairman instead.


Readings joined KWUK in September 2019 and was appointed to his current post of regional director in July 2022.

He is operating principal at the KW Plus Market Centre and was chief technology officer within the business.

It comes as rumours have surrounded the future of the business and its market centres under Taylor’s leadership.

He will no longer be involved in the day-to-day running of the business and will instead focus on strategic developments, KWUK said.

Taylor said he is looking forward to working closely with Readings, adding: “Over recent months the regional leadership team and myself have been restructuring the business of KWUK and the changes of role for myself and Mark are key elements in delivering our future plans.

“The restructuring process has enabled us to evaluate past ‘roadblocks’ which have, on occasions, slowed the pace of growth for KWUK. 

“During the past five years we have gained significant knowledge which has influenced our recent decisions and are driving valuable changes to our practices.” 

Readings said: “I am obviously delighted to be taking on the role of chief executive and, as always, the focus remains on empowering our agents to build businesses which allow them to lead the lives they desire. 

“We currently empower hundreds of agents across the UK through local market centres and I shall be looking to build on this proven foundational model with a new UK lead strategy and a clear ‘agent led’ philosophy.

“I very much look forward to meeting our agents and associates at our MegaCamp event on 12 October.”
