With three podium results in his sophomore season of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda, Austinite Ryan Shehan is working hard on the business side of his motorsports program. With a 501(c)(3) charity in place under the title Shehan Strong, unique partner programs have also been established to help pave the way for the future. This week, Shehan is pleased to welcome Marc King, president of Keller Williams (KW), the world’s largest real estate franchise by agent count, along with his wife Kristen King together as a Pathfinder to their growing motorsports effort.
“First off, I can’t thank Marc and Kristen enough for coming on board to support our racing efforts,” expressed Shehan. “We’re working hard both on and off the track, and the Kings’ financial support brings us closer to our goals.”
“Supporting our youth is of utmost importance,” added King. “The fact that Ryan is so focused on helping our communities was the only reason we needed to support his racing program. I look forward to cheering him on at upcoming events and hopefully helping him achieve his first F4 win.”
King is intent on disrupting the traditional approach to real estate – focused on delivering and innovating on world-class customer experiences at scale, while keeping the agent at the center of the real estate experience. Previously, he served as the director of growth for KW. With a real estate career spanning more than 20 years, King has also served as a real estate coach, a master trainer, and has held a multitude of senior leadership positions, from the market center to the regional level at KW.
Shehan added, “The approach that Marc has for the future of KW is something that lines up well with our program. While Marc’s company looks to help you sell your house fast, I look to be fast on the track and on the top step of the podium.”
Next up for Ryan Shehan will be a trip to the New Jersey Motorsports Park for rounds 10 through 12 of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda over the July 29-31 weekend.
