Madeleine Talbot-Leighton Celebrates 30 Years with Rapattoni Corporation

SIMI VALLEY, Calif., October 26, 2017 – Madeleine Talbot-Leighton celebrates 30 years with Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) on Friday, November 3, 2017. Mrs. Talbot-Leighton started with the company in November of 1987 as a trainer for the Rapattoni Association Management Software (AMS). She currently serves as Product Manager, is a member of the Rapattoni leadership team, contributes to the direction of the Rapattoni MLS and related products, and continues to represent the corporation at major conferences and expos. She also coordinates integrations between the MLS and third-party services, produces training videos for new features, and works with customers and Rapattoni staff to provide high quality service in all areas.

Reflecting on Mrs. Talbot-Leighton’s career, Rapattoni CEO Niki Rapattoni stated, “Maddy is our most traveled employee and has visited or trained at almost every one of our customers’ offices. She was very influential in our AMS product development and managed that team before she moved to work on our MLS product in 1998. Our Irish lass has an infectious personality and wonderful sense of humor that has endeared her to our staff, customers, vendors, and all contacts in the real estate industry.”

As a member of the Rapattoni leadership team, Madeleine works with Ms. Rapattoni, Rapattoni President Ralph Hoover, Director of MLS Software Destyn Dagle, Executive Vice President and CTO Brian Tepfer, and CIO and Chief Architect Nicholas Hook, along with several other industry veterans to set the company’s direction into the future. The 11-person leadership team brings together over 260 years of experience and leadership in the real estate industry

Rapattoni President Ralph Hoover commented, “Every version of AMS as well as MLS has been influenced by Maddy and as our Product Manager her domain knowledge and expertise in the industry makes her unique and greatly appreciated.”

Upon achieving this 30-year milestone, Mrs. Talbot-Leighton said, “I had arrived from Canada when Rapattoni sponsored me back in 1987 and I worked closely with co-founder Andy Rapattoni for years. We were truly pioneering in both products. I have been fortunate to have worked with such nice people and I look forward to many more years to come!”

Ms. Rapattoni added, “We simply cannot thank Maddy enough for the millions of miles traveled, dedication to the task, as well as her wit, talent, and charm!”

Rapattoni will be honoring and celebrating with Mrs. Talbot-Leighton over several weeks as her anniversary date coincides with the National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Chicago, where she will be toasted at the company's Happy Hour, and festivities will continue into the annual Rapattoni fall/winter event.
