The Broker Public Portal (BPP) has added four new members to its Board of Managers: Bill Miller, CEO of Metrolist Services, Inc.; Kathleen Manchin, director of Industry Relations/Corporate Counsel at Keller Williams Realty International; Chelsea Goyer, VP of Recruiting, Partner Programs & MLS Relations at Redfin; and Christina Pappas, district sales manager of The Keyes Company.

“Bringing Bill, Kathleen, Chelsea and Christina onto our board is an incredible addition of outstanding talent in both breadth of perspective and depth of knowledge,” says Merle Whitehead, chairman of the BPP and chairman, New York State of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “Together, as a board, we will continue to make sure Broker Public Portal continues to deliver and improve what millions of consumers and hundreds of thousands of agents have demonstrated they want.”

The BPP Board of Managers by charter includes a “fair and balanced group of executives who represent the interests of large brokers (5), medium brokers (3), small brokers (2), independent managers (2) and multiple listing service organizations (MLSs) (4).” Agent count of participating firms establishes the size of brokerages eligible. The nominating committee of the board has seven of the current directors, and was chaired by Joan Docktor of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox and Roach, REALTORS®. The board has staggered terms of three and two years in each category.
