ROCKVILLE, MD (PRWEB) January 21, 2016
MRIS, the industry-leading Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that facilitates nearly $140 million a day in real estate transactions, is proud to announce that its President and CEO David Charron has been named by Inman News to the Inman 101 for driving industry change.
Through the list, Inman News, the nations’ leading source of real estate news, recognized 101 real estate industry ‘doers’ whose ingenuity, outspokenness, strength, conviction, power and persistence have successfully changed the course of the industry. Charron was recognized for his strategic thinking around the future of the MLS, willingness to try new tools, pioneering unlikely partnerships and pushing for new business practices.
This past year Charron has been a key figure in the conversation around the evolving role of the MLS and has been instrumental in leading the charge to promote the expansion of an orderly and efficient marketplace to provide brokerage firms greater control of their listing content.
Honorees were selected based on nominations and recommendations from Inman’s readership, Ambassadors, the editorial team, outside advisors and industry experts. The Inman editorial and conference content team compiled a list of 400 eligible prospects that were narrowed down to the final top 101.
“Thousands of capable and purposeful professionals are changing the course of the industry, but this is our pick of 101 we are watching closely as they face and forge a constantly shifting landscape,” said Inman Editor Amber Taufen.
Charron has been well recognized in the industry and was most recently named the first recipient of the Peter Shuttleworth MLS Executive Award of Excellence by the Council of Multiple Listing Services and a co-honoree of RISMedia’s National Homeownership Award. Charron was also elected to serve on the board of directors for CMLS and as a strategic director on Midwest Real Estate Data’s (MRED) Board of Managers. Inman News previously recognized Charron nine consecutive times as one of its Most Influential People in Real Estate.
In addition, Charron will lead the conversation for the MLS Track panels at Inman’s Real Estate Connect in New York, NY. Real Estate Connect, hosted by Inman News from Jan. 26 – 29, brings together the nation’s real estate thought leaders to discuss the top issues, ideas and new technology affecting the real estate industry.
Charron will facilitate five MLS Track panels on Jan. 27 from 2-5 PM. He will be leading high-level discussions on major challenges facing MLSs, the evolving nature of the MLS, MLS consolidation, the relationship between NextGen real estate professionals and their MLS, and Upstream.
