The Residential Real Estate Council hired Jeff Hornberger, the former CEO of the Women’s Council of Realtors®, to serve as its new CEO, beginning Nov. 1.
The council is a not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® that supports members with advanced education, business tools and networking support.
Before his previous position, Hornberger held a variety of roles at NAR in Chicago. He served as director of global alliances for NAR, traveling to more than 35 countries on behalf of global real estate, working on business development through events, education and membership initiatives. He was also the managing director of the NAR Commercial Real Estate Division.
“Jeff’s history as a respected and influential leader locally and globally within our industry and his passion for educational excellence make him synchronous with [the Residential Real Estate Council] strategic vision,” National President Holli Woodward said in a press release.
Hornberger has held the Realtor® Certified Executive (RCE) designation since 2007, and in 2016, he earned his Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation.
“I’m looking forward to my new role and to working with the Residential Real Estate Council leaders and staff to serve our members and to further the RRC being the industry’s source for timely, leading-edge education and gold-standard designation for achievement and professionalism in real estate domestically and globally,” Hornberger said.
