MBA’s Future Leaders Program Graduates 57 Residential and Commercial/Multifamily Real Estate Finance Professionals

SAN DIEGO, CA – October 21, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) today recognized a total of 57 mortgage professionals — 34 from the residential market segment and 23 from the commercial/multifamily market segment — in a graduation ceremony for MBA’s Future Leaders Program held at MBA’s Annual Convention & Expo in San Diego, California.

“The Future Leaders program is dedicated to identifying and cultivating the next generation of industry leaders. These folks are the future of our industry and have a unique opportunity to be major contributors in shaping that future,” said MBA Chairman, Bill Emerson. “While the Future Leaders program originated with the single-family market, last year MBA expanded the leadership program to our Commercial/Multifamily members who expressed their desire for further executive development. They represent a number of different disciplines across the diverse real estate finance community.”

MBA’s Future Leaders Program, in its 19th year, delivers a comprehensive leadership training experience for selected participants through three sessions offered throughout the year. These hands on sessions are geared toward customized assessment of leadership skills and their strategic application; business analysis, and problem solving and experiential learning through collaboration, networking and peer group interaction. The new class will join a national network of more than 400 real estate finance professionals who have been acclaimed by the industry as its next generation of leaders. This is the second class to include graduates who completed a program specific to commercial/multifamily real estate finance.

Initiated in 1996 by then-MBA President Ron J. McCord, CMB, the Future Leaders Program delivers a highly regarded curriculum focusing on leadership and business analysis skills that help candidates advance their careers in real estate finance.
