mPact’s Commercial Production Advisory Council Welcomes Maggie Burke as Chair
The Mortgage Bankers Association’s young professional’s group, mPact, welcomes a new chair this month for the Commercial Production Advisory Council, Berkadia’s Maggie Burke.
Burke has worked for Berkadia since 2014 in various roles, including her current position, Associate Director. In this role, she is responsible for providing financing solutions to commercial real estate owners and developers throughout the U.S. She has extensive knowledge and experience in structuring, underwriting and closing loans backed by a broad range of asset types including multifamily, office, industrial and retail.
“I first learned about mPact at a networking event a few years ago, and its mission to get young professionals more involved has always aligned with my own goals,” Burke said. “Through mPact, I have been able to expand my network outside of Berkadia, while cultivating lasting relationships with colleagues, clients and prospects. mPact is such a great group for networking, education, and philanthropy.”
Burke referenced mPact’s work with the MBA Open Doors Foundation, which since 2012 has helped nearly 6,800 families with critically ill or injured children stay in their homes while their child was in treatment.
Burke’s goals as Chair of the mPact Production Advisory Council include continuing the group’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, broadening the community through networking events, increasing engagement with MBA MAA (Mortgage Action Alliance) and MORPAC (MBA’s political action committee) and working with MBA on targeted educational opportunities.
“I am excited to work with Maggie in this new role and help her attain her mPact goals,” said Jacky Salazar, a member of the MBA Policy and Member Engagement team. She oversees mPact’s commercial activities along with her broader portfolio of organizing events, committees and roundtables for the Servicer Council. She joined the association in January, bringing more than 13 years of industry experience with various member firms, including Fannie Mae, Barings Multifamily Capital and PGIM.
