The Residential Real Estate Council announced the appointment of Jeff Hornberger as its new chief executive officer. Hornberger, the former CEO of the Women’s Council of Realtors, began serving as the CEO of RRC on Nov. 1.
The organization is a not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) with more than 28,000 members, and provides its members with education and networking opportunities.
Hornberger’s professional career spans more than two decades in various industries. He has experience in general management, sales, marketing, public relations, and operations in the private and association sectors.
Hornberger joined NAR in 1999 where he served as the director of global alliances, managing director of member development in NAR’s commercial real estate division, and manager of international business development focusing on Latin America, for 15 years.
As the director of global alliances, Hornberger managed NAR’s more than 80 partnerships around the world and traveled to more than 35 countries on behalf of NAR’s global real estate department.
“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 in a statement.
He has been a Realtor Certified Executive (RCE) since 2007 and in 2016, he earned his Certified Association Executive (CAE).
“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 RRC’s strategic vision,” said Holli Woodward, national president of RRC. “On behalf of the board of directors, we hope that the members and staff share in our excitement as we welcome him.”
