For most of his career, David Charron has served the real estate industry in a variety of senior positions. David was CEO of MRIS, Inc. for 18 years, one of the largest MLSs in the country. Most recently he served as the Chief Strategy Officer for the successor organization, Bright MLS, Inc.
David continues to contribute to the industry via speaking, writing and whispering to people and companies that are intent on ensuring its continued vitality. Since stepping away from the industry full time he aspires to be an excellent stone wall builder, an average golfer and promoter of smart, engaged people. With the exception of the latter, this list changes regularly.
Rob is the founder of 7DS Associates, a management consulting firm in real estate, but most of you know him from his well-known blog, The Notorious R.O.B., and from his many speaking engagements throughout the industry.
Rob has what you might call a varied background with stints in high finance, law, technology, startups, fashion sales, and even professional gaming. He started in real estate investing in airplane hangars (true story!). He moved on to Realogy, where he headed interactive marketing and product for Coldwell Banker Commercial before striking out on his own.
He is a graduate of Yale University with a BA in Philosophy. As the Wall Street Philosophy Banks were not hiring, he added a JD from NYU along with student loans the size of a good mortgage. He is a refugee from New Jersey currently residing in fabulous Las Vegas with his wife Sunny.
