Seeking “a seat at the table,” Compass’ Aaron Seawood jumps to Triplemint

first_img This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Now Triplemint CEO David Walker and Aaron Seawood (Triplemint, Wikipedia)Triplemint has snagged Compass broker Aaron Seawood and his team to lead the firm’s push into the Brooklyn market.Though the venture-backed brokerage of 170-odd agents doesn’t have concrete plans for a physical office in the borough as of yet, Triplemint CEO David Walker said Seawood represents a “cultural pillar” around which future hires and eventual office space will happen.The new office is part of the brokerage’s ongoing expansion and Walker said the firm sees “untapped potential” in Brooklyn, as many firms increasingly are.Seawood and his team, dubbed Carte Blanche, worked at Compass for five years. Seawood was a founding member of the firm’s sports and entertainment division.Prior to Compass, Seawood worked at the Corcoran Group. He got into real estate in 2008 after more than a decade in the music industry as an artist manager and a stint as an executive Virgin Records America.Seawood said his client roster includes celebrity musicians and athletes. His three teammates, agents Noel Borbon, Sorel Roget, and Shane Boyle are all moving to Triplemint as well.Asked why he made the move, Seawood said he’d “quietly been a fan” of Triplemint for some time. He declined to comment further but said the pandemic afforded him some time to reflect.“When you’re able to be still, you’re really able to be self aware…You have a little more time to think about what’s important to you at that particular moment,” he said.Seawood said he was looking forward to moving into a “boutique” environment at a smaller firm and using the brokerage’s in-house technology platform. He added that, as the first Brooklyn-focused agents at Triplemint, he was drawn to the chance to “have a seat at the table.”“Them wanting me to lend a voice to the direction of the company,” he explained. “That’s a rare opportunity.”A spokesperson for Compass said in a statement that “Aaron is not only a great agent but an amazing person who will always be part of the Compass family.”Seawood and Carte Blanche’s hires at Triplemint come as many residential brokerages, including Compass, have been cutting costs and laying off staffers. Last month, Triplemint hired former Douglas Elliman sales manager Molly Townsend and Walker said more hires are on the way.“We’re still growing and we’re still scaling,” said Walker.Triplemint has not been immune to the pandemic, however. At the beginning of April, it laid off two employees, swapped out part of its leadership team’s salaries for stock and Walker and his co-founder COO Philip Lang stopped taking a salary.But Walker said the firm had a strong first quarter that’s powering its recruitment now. He pushed back against the idea of cutting or reducing agent resources.“That’s the wrong strategy,” he said. “This is the time to invest in your agents because the market is going to rebound.”Write to Erin Hudson at [email protected] moreEx-Douglas Elliman sales manager Molly Townsend joins TriplemintTriplemint expands to New JerseyLayoffs and furloughs hit NYC’s biggest resi firmslast_img read more

Bar regulator seeks SRA-style powers over failing chambers

first_imgThe Bar Standards Board is seeking new powers to step into ‘failing chambers’ and other barristers’ businesses when something goes wrong.These include giving the BSB powers along the lines of those enjoyed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to seize client files and to intervene and take charge if a chambers is seen to be failing or has gone into administration.’This would ensure a level playing field between different regulatory regimes,’ a consultation document entitled ‘Amendment to Bar Standards Board powers’ says.The regulator is also seeking views on setting up a compensation fund. Although the BSB does not envisage that it will be necessary to set up such a fund at the moment, as chambers do not hold client money, it says it is seeking the powers to prepare for changes in the market. The regulatory body cites the increase in public access work, of barristers undertaking litigation and the advent of new business models as factors that could alter the risk landscape. The powers being proposed are the same as those the BSB will be granted if it is licensed as a regulator of alternative business structures, for which it applied last week. However if approved, the new powers will apply to ‘all persons regulated by the BSB, including individual barristers, entities and their owners and managers’. Ewen Macleod, director of regulatory policy for the BSB, said: ‘To be clear: these are powers that would be used very rarely, but we think that, in the event something goes awry, all clients should benefit from the same safeguards – regardless of whether they’re the client of an ABS, a BSB-regulated entity, or a barristers’ chambers.’The BSB also hopes to put its existing regulatory powers on a statutory footing. This includes the power to discipline and disqualify barristers or lay persons working in a chambers or entity. Although the BSB has disciplinary controls over non-barristers through the contractual relationship entered in to with those it regulates, it wants these to be stated ‘unambiguously’ in legislation.The proposed powers would also allow it disqualify support staff such as clerks.The BSB is consulting members on these proposals, and will be accepting feedback until 31 July.last_img read more
