WHITE PLAINS—Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors President Anthony Domathoti announced on Nov. 22 in an e-mail message to the association’s membership that the Executive Committee had appointed HGAR Chief Operating Officer Jana Currier as Interim Chief Executive Officer.

The appointment was necessitated by the impending departure of longtime HGAR Chief Executive Officer Richard Haggerty, who will be taking over as Chief Executive Officer of OneKey MLS on Jan. 1, 2023.

Domathoti reported to the membership that the Executive Committee is close to finalizing a decision on retaining an executive search firm for a new CEO and that Currier will serve as Interim CEO until a permanent selection is made.

“The Executive Committee believes that the combination of Jana’s experience as COO, involved in the day-to-day operation of HGAR, as well as her corporate background and previous real estate experience, make her uniquely qualified for the position of interim CEO,” Domathoti stated. “I know that Jana will be an effective leader for HGAR during this period, and we appreciate her willingness to serve in this important capacity.”

Currier arrived at HGAR when she was appointed Director of Member Engagement in November 2019. She was appointed HGAR’s Chief Operating Officer, replacing the retiring Ann Garti, in November 2021.

A Realtor since 1992, Currier holds a license in New Jersey with Coldwell Banker Realty. She held several positions with Coldwell Banker Currier & Lazier Realtors during her 17-year tenure for one of the largest brokerages servicing the Hudson Valley. Beginning as a Sales Manager, Currier was promoted to Relocation Director and then Vice President, Corporate Services.

While an Associate Broker in Orange County, her leadership positions included a directorship with the Greater Hudson Valley Multiple Listing Service and membership in both the education and selection committees.

Her father, Gene Currier, Broker Owner of Coldwell Banker Currier & Lazier Realtors, also served as a past president of the former Orange County Association of Realtors and past president of the New York State Association of Realtors.

Currier also served as Director of Training & Development for Mediacom Communications Corp., a major cable operator. She was also an executive coach.

She holds an M.S. in Industrial Psychology from California State University, Long Beach and a B.A. in Psychology from Binghamton University.

In addition, she has a Graduate Certificate in Organizational and Executive Coaching from New York University. She has two children—Brent and Bryce Marie Dombal.
