CMLS Logo Morrisville, N.C. (October 21, 2011) – The Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) recently inducted industry veteran and CMLS charter member, Peter Shuttleworth, into the Hall of Fame at the Annual Conference on October 6 in Tucson, Ariz. He became the first person to receive the CMLS Hall of Fame designation, which was established earlier this year to recognize outstanding individual contributions made through dedicated service to the association and the industry.

“We are so very excited that Peter is our very first inductee into the CMLS Hall of Fame – the standard to receive this award has been set by his amazing contributions to our industry,” said Merri Jo Cowen, CMLS president.
Peter Shuttleworth is the executive vice president of Multiple Listing Service and president of WIREdata Corporation in Milwaukee, Wis. Although Shuttleworth, an army veteran, began his career in information technology and management, he has spent the past 27 years devoting his expertise to the real estate industry. He has devoted a considerable amount of time working within the National Association of Realtors (NAR) on their education, policy and technology committees and was the first chair of the MLS Executives Group, a key forum for MLS Executives, AEs and brokers/agents at each national meeting. He served two terms on the NAR board of directors and continues to participate in discussions, both formal and informal, about the industry. In addition, he has worked with the International Real Property Foundation in several countries to present industry best practices, the challenges of exclusive contracts, offers of compensation and the benefits of good market data.

Along with his recent induction into the CMLS Hall of Fame, Shuttleworth is also the 2011 Wisconsin Realtors Association (WRA) Chairman’s Citation award recipient for contributions to the WRA and Realtors in Wis.
