T3 Sixty, a real estate management consulting and analytics firm, has appointed the firm’s President, Jack Miller, as CEO effective May 3, 2022. He takes over the role from real estate industry icon Stefan Swanepoel, who founded the influential company in 1998 and has led it as CEO ever since. Miller, who has been with T3 Sixty since 2013, will continue in the position of President, reporting to Swanepoel, who will move to Executive Chairman and remain the company’s largest shareholder.
Miller, whom Swanepoel considers a protégé, has two decades of real estate industry experience and has held management and executive positions in real estate franchising, franchise ownership, brokerage and management consulting organizations. With a formal education in electrical and computer engineering, Miller becomes the company’s second CEO in a quarter of a century. All 12 of T3 Sixty’s businesses, most of which will be led by one of the firm’s six associate partners – Dean Cottrill, Travis Saxton, Kelly White, Paul Hagey, Darlene Lyons and Mitch Robinson – will report to Miller.
The appointment coincides with a number of other company promotions.

These promotions come amid significant growth in the scale and impact of T3 Sixty across its 12 businesses.

Miller’s appointment will take place in early May at the T3 Summit, T3 Sixty’s annual real estate manager think tank, in San Antonio, Texas.
“Jack has achieved every goal set for him over the past seven years and has set numerous benchmarks required to excel at the highest level. I am very proud of how Jack has grown into one of the highest quality and most effective leaders in the residential real estate industry,” said Swanepoel. “In Miller, who is now only 48, T3 Sixty has an experienced powerhouse who will serve the industry for the next 25 years.”
