ST. LOUIS, Sept. 12, 2017 – Mid America Regional Information Systems (MARIS), the regional MLS serving the Greater St. Louis area, is pleased to announce that it has hired Tim Dain to succeed Paul Prince as its new President. Mr. Prince will be retiring at the end of the year after leading MARIS for over 20 years, including expanding the organization across state lines into Southern Illinois. MARIS currently serves over 12,500 MLS subscribers.
Mr. Prince commented, “Tim is a bright young man who is capable of leading MARIS into the future and our board selected him over other well-qualified candidates because of his progressive thinking and leadership skills.”
Clareity Consulting of Scottsdale, AZ facilitated the national executive search for the MARIS organization and its leadership team. Mr. Dain will start at MARIS on Oct. 1 and work closely with Mr. Prince for a period of time to ensure a smooth executive transition.
Prior to accepting this role, Mr. Dain was the Multiple Listing Service Director of the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR), a 13,500 subscriber MLS organization in Central Texas. There, among other accomplishments, he created a groundbreaking “Developer Reference Server” which provides technology developers quick and affordable access to accurate data for the development and testing of new products and services for the real estate industry.
Before ABoR, Tim worked as the Executive Director of the Southern Illinois Regional MLS (SIRMLS). He began there as Technology Director and was promoted to CEO in less than two years. At SIRMLS, Mr. Dain was responsible for creating a virtual MLS with no physical office, achieving a cost reduction of more than 30 percent while streamlining processes to enhance daily operations.
Mr. Dain has a national presence, serving on the Board of Directors for both the Council of MLS and Real Estate Standards Organization, and has served on advisory bodies for UpstreamRE, RPR AMP, and Dotloop.
