SAN DIMAS, CALIFORNIA, November 3, 2017 – The Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) named California Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS) CEO Art Carter the 2017 recipient of the Peter Shuttleworth MLS Executive Award of Excellence on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. The award was introduced by nominating chair Chris Carrillo, CEO of Metro MLS, at an MLS Executives Session, and announced by 2016 honoree John Mosey, president of NorthstarMLS.
According to CMLS, the award “recognizes leaders who… are determined to have observed the highest qualities of leadership within their organizations and demonstrated a dedication to excellence by making substantial contributions to the MLS industry.”
“Art Carter has both championed initiatives at CRMLS that have become adopted as best practices by the MLS industry and he has vigorously advocated for the advancement of MLS through his direct action on committees, boards, and organizations,” said Denee Evans, CEO of CMLS. “CMLS is thrilled to recognize the profound impact he has made on the marketplace.”
In addition to spearheading the CRMLS-sponsored “It’s My Business” campaign to expand MLS data access across California, Carter has served as an MLS industry thought leader in numerous capacities, including as chair of the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO), past president of CMLS, and founding member of industry think tanks COVE and MLS RoundTable.
The award is named after Peter Shuttleworth, former executive vice president of Metro MLS and the first CMLS Hall of Fame inductee.
