Kirk Wickersham, known by most as the founder of the widely successful FSBO

(For Sale by Owner) System, was appointed to the University of Alaska’s Board of
Regents in 2007 by Governor and former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin. There,
Wickersham serves as the vice chair – a prestigious honor reserved for a select few.

As vice chair of the board, Wickersham is largely responsible for ensuring that the
University runs in a fiscally sound matter. In charge of approving new construction,
annual budgets and tuition rates, the Board of Reagents meets to deliberate on critical
issues and is designed to make decisions that best serve the interests of students and the
University at large.

Wickersham also belongs to several committees within the Board. He belongs to the
Facilities and Land Management Committee, the Planning and Development Committee
and the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education. A former graduate of the
University, Wickersham treats his responsibilities with the utmost respect, and uses his
intrinsic knowledge of the financial world and love of his home state as a guide.

Kirk’s career has been marked by success, and his appointment to the Board only serves
to magnify his life’s work. A graduate of Yale Law School and recipient of a Master’s
Degree from the University of Colorado, Wickersham is also an accomplished author,
public speaker and continuing educator.

Also an active real estate broker, Wickersham used his knowledge of the industry to
develop the FSBO System in 1995. Since that time, the heralded system, that teaches
do-it-yourself home sellers how to effectively market and sell their homes, has helped
thousands upon thousands of clients save upwards of $50,000 in costly commission fees.
The system was recently restructured for the web, and is projected to touch the lives of
many more home sellers over the next several years.

Wickersham began his tenure on the Board of Reagents in 2007, and is in line to serve
the University his term ends in 2015.
