Metrolist, Inc.®, the largest Multiple Listing Service (MLS) serving Colorado, today announced that Kirby Slunaker has been named the company’s interim COO following Patricia Bybee’s resignation as CEO.
Mr. Slunaker brings over 20 years of experience in leading information technology for a broad range of top companies, including Pendum LLC, MDC Holdings, eBags, FedEx, and VISA USA. He is a former Chairman of and currently serves on, the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee for the Colorado Technology Association (formerly CSIA), Colorado’s premier technology trade association.
In his new role with Metrolist, Mr. Slunaker will be assisted in the firm’s day-to-day operations by the existing management team.
“We sincerely appreciate Pat’s 27 years of leadership and wish her well in her new pursuits,” says James T.
