Midwest Real Estate Data, the multiple listing service for the Chicagoland area, named Rebecca Jensen as its new president and chief executive officer.
Jensen joins MRED from the UtahRealEstate.com MLS, where she has been CEO since 2007. While with UtahRealEstate.com, she led the effort to develop and successfully deploy a new in-house MLS platform, including mobile website and apps, as well as a public portal. In 2012 she launched PropertyPond.com, a website for rental properties.
"Speaking on behalf of MRED's Board of Managers, we are thrilled that Ms. Jensen has agreed to join MRED as our new President and Chief Executive Officer," Jeff Gregory, MRED’s chairman of the board, said.
“Rebecca has both the required skills and knowledge for the position as well as the ability to be our leader,” Gregory added. “An exhaustive search has resulted in the hiring of someone who we look forward to working with for many years to come. This is an exciting day for MRED and our customers.”
Jensen takes over as CEO for Gregory, who has served as MRED’s interim president and CEO since June 2014.
"I am delighted to take on the challenge of leading such a prominent MLS," Jensen said. "There are many issues confronting our industry today. I am eager to work with the talented staff at MRED and have a positive impact on our customers and the national stage. I cannot wait to get started."
