GSBOR executive takes Oklahoma job

Posted online
Greater Springfield Board of Realtors and Southern Missouri Regional MLS leader Jessica Hickok left the organizations late last month for a new job in Oklahoma, and a longtime board member is now serving in the interim.

Hickok became CEO of the statewide, 9,000-member Oklahoma Association of Realtors after four years leading the 1,800-member Springfield association. Miles Noennig came out of retirement Dec. 8 to take over as interim executive for the GSBOR and the MLS.

When Hickok joined the GSBOR in 2012 as executive, the organization had 1,700 members. During her tenure, Hickok was a prominent player in the consolidation of local groups into the Southern Missouri Regional MLS.

“We thought that at some point in time she’d get opportunities to move on and move up. She’s got a very bright future,” Noennig said of Hickok.

Noennig, 62, retired Oct. 31 as CJR’s chief administrative officer. He said the timing of his retirement and the need for an interim leader at GSBOR was coincidental.

“I guess I seemed like a logical fit,” he said.

Noennig worked 19 years as a real estate broker and financial officer after a 20-year career in St. Louis as a banker. He served as a GSBOR board member 2003-13 and as president in 2009. He also was the 2016 president of the Missouri Realtors group, according to

GSBOR has formed a search committee to find a permanent successor to Hickok, but Noennig hasn’t decided whether he’ll be a candidate.

“We’ll wait and see how everything plays out,” he said. “I’ve loved working with this association for the nearly 20 years I’ve been a member.”
