David Charron
President and CEO

MRIS President and Chief Executive Officer David Charron has been recognized by Inman News for the 7th consecutive year as one of the “Most Influential People in Real Estate.” David has also been named as one of the “Top Ten Newsmakers” by the Swanepoel Trends Report. In addition, David has been inducted into NAR’s Dr. Almon R. (Bud) Smith, RCE, AE Leadership Society, a prestigious honor for an MLSExecutive as it is typically awarded to association executives. The Smith Society recognizes those leaders who have proven to be leading contributors to the industry and profession.

When David joined MRIS in January 2001, he brought a wealth of leadership and strategic industry experience, combining an extensive background in real estate, information systems and Internet business solutions.

David brings a customer-service focus and first-person management style to his role overseeing all MRISoperations, ensuring that, as one of the nation’s largest MLS systems, MRIS maintains its leadership edge. He also emphasizes two-way communications with the MRIS Board of Directors and MRISShareholders, fostering collaboration and inspiring innovation.

Prior to joining MRIS, David was the President of Net Input, an Internet-based business consulting practice serving Fortune 500 clients in apparel, media, sports and real estate. From 1980 to 1997, he managed several organizations that successfully defined, marketed and delivered information systems to Real Estate professionals.

David currently serves as Chairman of the MRIS Investment Committee. Other examples of his ongoing commitment to the industry include serving as a former Board member of the REALTORS® Federal Credit Union, and as a former member of the NAR MLS Policy Committee. He is a founding member of COVE, an industry think tank comprised of large MLS organizations.

When it comes to giving back, David also exemplifies MRIS’s philosophy of service. He was selected “Volunteer of the Year” by the National Eating Disorders Association, which provides education and awareness to individuals and families suffering from eating disorders.
