MORPAC Honors Jeff Hurley with the 2020 Distinguished Schumacher-Bolduc Award
WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 20, 2020) - The Mortgage Bankers Association Political Action Committee (MORPAC) today awarded Jeff Hurley, Senior Managing Director, CBRE, with the 2020 Schumacher-Bolduc Award during the association's virtual 2020 Annual Convention & Expo. The award was given to Hurley in recognition of his extraordinary work on behalf of MBA's political advocacy programs and the real estate finance industry.
"Throughout his career, Jeff has been a tireless industry advocate, and he dedicates immeasurable time to MORPAC," said Susan Stewart, 2021 MBA Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer at SWBC Mortgage Corporation. "His influence touches all facets of the real estate finance industry, and I can think of no one more deserving of this honor."
Hurley served as the CREF Vice-Chair of the MORPAC Steering Committee in the 2019-2020 fundraising cycle. He also ran MORPAC company campaigns in 2019 and 2020, securing a company record-breaking $85,000 in employee contributions in the 2020 campaign. Hurley also promotes MORPAC among CREF professionals to help expand the base of support in this market segment.
Hurley's leadership has also helped CREF membership achieve new heights in MORPAC giving and participation in 2020. CREF employees account for 32% of all MORPAC donors and 25% of all MORPAC contributions in 2020 with over $280,000 in personal MORPAC contributions.
Additionally, Hurley consistently makes MAA a priority in meetings and conference calls and within CBRE, and continues to leverage his passion and professional network to expand the MAA footprint among our commercial/multifamily members.
