MRIS, an industry-leading Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that facilitates nearly $125 million a day in residential real estate transactions, announces new executive leadership for its organization and its subsidiary RealEstate Business Intelligence, LLC (RBI).
Bringing more than 30 years of real estate industry experience, John L. Heithaus will assume the position of Chief Evangelist and Vice President of Sales for RBI. Heithaus, a third generation real estate professional, brings a deep perspective and understanding of residential real estate statistics, traditional and non-traditional market insights, and real estate-related technologies for consumers and professionals. Building on the great efforts at RBI to date as well as the success of GetSmartCharts.com, Heithaus will be responsible for developing strategic partnerships and overseeing sales operations to support RBI’s expansion goals and objectives. Previously, Heithaus served as Chief Marketing Officer of MRIS and most recently as Chief Operating Officer of BuyerMLS.
Jonathan Hill is rejoining MRIS and will serve as Vice President of Marketing & Communications. With a career spanning over 25 years in the real estate industry, Hill has accumulated extensive experience as a real estate licensee and as an MLS executive including sales, management, customer support, marketing, and product development. Hill, who started with the company in 1996, has a keen understanding of the real estate industry and will help to provide overall direction and strategic leadership for the company’s marketing activities. In his role, Hill will be responsible for MRIS’s extensive plans and roadmap for marketing, communications, education and events. For the past five years, Hill led RBI, MRIS’s wholly owned subsidiary.
“John and Jonathan have made significant contributions and accomplishments in our industry and we are thrilled with these exciting changes at our organization,” said MRIS President & CEO David Charron. “We are more committed than ever to evaluate, innovate and bring more tangible value to our customers around the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. I look forward to seeing how two of the industry’s most forward-thinking leaders will take us to the next level.”
