Peter Shuttleworth and Steve Malme Join FBS's Board of Directors

Oct 13, 2011 Michael Wurzer

FBS is very pleased to announce that Peter Shuttleworth and Steve Malme have joined FBS’s Board of Directors and bring a wealth of talent and experience to us.

  • Peter Shuttleworth — Peter brings to FBS’s Board extensive MLS industry experience from his 26 years as the Executive Vice President of MetroMLS and 17 years as President of WIREdata Corporation in Milwaukee, WI.  Peter also has served in a wide variety of leadership roles with MLS industry groups such as the Council of Multiple Listing Services and the National Association of REALTORS, and just last week was named the first CMLS Hall of Fame award recipient for his many years of leadership in the MLS industry.  With Peter just recently retiring from his long career with MetroMLS, FBS is incredibly fortunate to have Peter help lead us toward the future for MLS.
  • Steve Malme — Steve currently is a Senior Director in the Enterprise Health Group at Microsoft and has been with Microsoft (and Great Plains Software) in a variety of management, technology and sales positions over the last 20 years.  Though Steve now lives in Seattle, he hails from Fargo (where FBS is headquartered) and was the lead developer at FBS in the early ’90s.  Steve’s extensive experience with Great Plains and Microsoft will be invaluable to guide FBS in our future years of growth.

Peter and Steve are joining our other outside director, Dan Woolley of WR Studios (creators of CloudCMA and Dwellicious), to bring FBS diverse and and deep outside leadership.

Also new to the FBS Board are two employee-owners, Jaison Freed (FBS’s VP of Hosting) and Matt O’Brien (Web Developers), who were recently appointed to the Board.  FBS is a 100% employee-owned company and so it is important to us to have significant employee-owner leadership at the highest levels of FBS.  Jaison and Matt are sure to bring passion and excellence to the Board’s efforts to lead FBS.
