Baylor University Alumnus, Curtis S. Schroeder, has been named assistant director of the Keller Center and the Center for Professional Selling. Schroeder graduated in 2009 from the Hankamer School of Business with a degree in marketing.

As assistant director, Schroeder will work closely with scholars at Baylor and nation-wide to produce the Keller Center Research Report, a quarterly publication. Schroeder indicated that the publication, "focuses its research on issues pertinent to the real estate industry and broader marketing and management topics; the KCRR is primarily targeted towards real estate agencies and small businesses." Schroeder will also help plan and implement research initiatives while continuing to enhance the scope and long-term impact of Keller Center findings.

Keller Center executive director, Dr. Andrea Dixon is, "very excited to welcome Curtis to the Keller Center team. Through his role as assistant director, we look to extend the reach of the Keller Center's research, engaging in dialogue with an even more expansive and diverse audience through our work."

Dixon believes Schroeder's organizational skills, creativity and leadership will allow the Keller Center to explore new areas of research and publication.

The Keller Center, endowed by a generous $5 million donation from Gary Keller (Keller-Williams Realty International, BBA 1979), was established in 2007 at Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business. The Keller Center and the Keller Center Research Report highlight leading-edge research focused on the agent-buyer relationship within the real estate industry, in addition to universal marketing and management issues.
