Drew Murbach of TRI Commercial/CORFAC International Presented with Thomas B. Hayes Award

International’s Fall Summit in Boston, MA. Morris, the owner of Morris Southeast Group/CORFAC International, is the Chair of CORFAC’s Technology Committee. The Hayes Award is given annually to the CORFAC professional who uses technology in innovative ways and shares those ‘best practices’ with his or her CORFAC colleagues. Murbach is the COO/CFO of TRI Commercial/CORFAC International with offices in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Sacramento, Rocklin and Roseville, CA.

Murbach has been a frequent and passionate contributor to CORFAC’s Broker Support Forum efforts over the years, drawing inspiration from Ray Baker’s (former Hayes Award Winner) significant contributions to share best operational practices with CORFAC member firms. He has taken a prominent and selfless role in leading Broker Support meetings on relevant subject matter for the benefit of CORFAC firm admin staff participants.

The most recent example of Murbach’s commitment came in Portland (CORFAC’s Fall Summit in 2011) with his excellent presentation to the Principals’ Caucus on the meaning and potential value of Cloud Computing. He was able to not only explain the concepts in an easily understandable manner, but was also adept at fielding numerous relevant inquiries during the Q&A portion of the presentation, thereby providing significant take-home value. Drew is also a leader during Broker Support Forum specialty sessions at CORFAC conferences and enjoys the mutual respect of previous Thomas B. Hayes Award winners.

Murbach has been TRI Commercial’s CFO/COO since 2002. During that period of time, he has been instrumental in designing the information technology platform for this company of 80-85 agents plus staff (total of about 110 people). In addition, he has repeatedly exploited emerging trends in Corporate Real Estate (CRE) technology adaptation to institute efficiencies and leverage staff effectiveness as a hedge against cyclical markets.
