The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA)
has reached into the commercial side of the industry for its next wave of leadership by nominating Brian Stoffers, global president of debt and structured
finance with CBRE
in Los Angeles, as its vice chairman for the 2018 membership year.
Stoffers is a member of MBA's Board of Directors and is former chairman of the MBA Commercial Real Estate/Multifamily Finance Board of Governors. He also served on the MBA's Affordable Rental Housing Task Force, GSE Multifamily Task Force and Risk Retention Task Force, and has been a top donor to MBA's Opens Doors Foundation. He received the MBA Commercial/Multifamily Distinguished Service Award in 2015. At CBRE, Stoffers oversees a 140-person practice that has originated $181 billion in loan volumes since 2007.
Stoffers will be elected by MBA members at the trade group's 104th Annual Convention, which takes place this October in Denver.
"I have worked closely with Brian extensively for many years at MBA and can't think of a better leader for our industry," said MBA Chairman Rodrigo Lopez. "Brian has been active within MBA for more than twenty years as a thought leader in the commercial/multifamily space and as a member of the MBA Board of Directors. He brings technical knowledge, leadership and vision to the role and will clearly be an asset to MBA and the industry as a whole."
