USAO Regent Mo Anderson

Real estate titan Mo Anderson of Edmond was sworn in on Sept. 11, 2012, as the newest member of the USAO Board of Regents. She was appointed to the board by Gov. Mary Fallin to a seven-year term, replacing Oklahoma transportation leader Neal McCaleb.

Mo Anderson has energized alumni and the campus community for many years with her support for major projects like the Stevens Alumni House and the restored Greek Theater – a 1923 classic architectural feature rebuilt with alumni gifts in 2003.

She joined Keller Williams Realty as president and chief executive officer in 1995, shepherding the company’s growth from 35 market centers to 530 in 10 years.

Anderson studied piano at the Oklahoma College for Women, before earning her education degree from OU, and taught piano for 14 years before entering the real estate field. In Oklahoma she served several terms on the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission, beginning in 1986, with two terms as chair.

Both in Oklahoma, and in Texas, where she has maintained a residence in Austin for many years, Mo Anderson and her husband Richard have been active in civic and charitable causes. She has served on the boards of Edmond Memorial Hospital, Francis Tuttle Vo-Tech Foundation, The Daily Living Center, and several others.

She is the founder and key supporter of two nonprofit organizations: the Gregg Foundation, which supports the elderly, and KW Cares, Inc., which serves emergency needs of Keller Williams associates and select global philanthropies.

During her career, Anderson started at least six other companies. As a motivational speaker, she has addressed hundreds of groups, including Yale University School of Business and local and national women’s groups.

The Andersons have two adult children and three grandchildren.
