The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has presented its annual Burton C. Wood Legislative Service Award to Michael Berman, founder and member of the board of managers of CW Financial Services and president and CEO of CWCapital.
The award is given annually to an MBA member employee in recognition of his or her sustained superior service to the association and the real estate finance industry as a whole. Berman is the immediate past MBA chairman and a member of MBA's board of directors, as well as MBA's Commercial Board of Governors.
Berman, whose mortgage banking career has spanned more than 15 years, also serves as chairman of the MBA's Council on Ensuring Mortgage Liquidity.
The award is named after the late MBA Legislative Counsel Burton C. Wood, who devoted more than 30 years of service to MBA's advocacy efforts, and passed away in 2010.
