Homestore today named Michael R. Douglas as EVP, General Counsel.

Douglas assumes the position previously held by Walter Lowry, who has been Homestore's General Counsel since September of last year. Lowry will continue to serve the company as a consultant.

Douglas' legal career spans more than 20 years of private practice, corporate product liability consulting and corporate counsel. He was SVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at Fibreboard Corp. for 10 years. While there, he was an integral part of the management team that executed one of the most successful company turnarounds in the building industry. Douglas also oversaw several of Fibreboard's corporate activities, including human resources and risk management functions.

Douglas received his Juris Doctor from The George Washington University Law School in 1979.

"In his last assignment as a General Counsel, Mike was instrumental in creating significant value for shareholders and we are thrilled that he has chosen to add his skills to Homestore," said Homestore Chairman Joe Hanauer.

Westlake Village, Calif.-based Homestore provides media and technology services to the real estate industry.
