A Message From IMBA’s President: Sergio Murer, CMB

Sergio Murer, CMB was installed as President of the IMBA for 2020 on February 6, 2020 at the Loews Hotel in Rosemont. Close to 200 members and guests attending the evening to celebrate the 99th Annual Meeting. Here are some excerpts from Sergio's remarks:

Thank you for the honor and privilege to serve as your 2020 Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association President.  I want to thank 2019 President, Joe Logan for his outstanding leadership and the IMBA Board for their support and involvement.  Who am I? I am Sergio Murer, CMB, Regional Sales Executive, Correspondent Sales with Wells Fargo Funding.  I work for the correspondent side of Wells Fargo, where we buy loans and servicing.  I live in Springfield IL, with my wife Liz.

Why am I here?  Why are you here? What does IMBA do?  IMBA's mission is to provide information, educational respurces and effective advocacy to help its members be profitable, ethical and prepared for future challenges.

Many years ago, I was not the strongest supporter of the organization.  I occasionally attended IMBA events but I wondered if my limited involvement was helping my career?  Was it worth the time…?  Many years later, I came to the realization that the more I did in the organization, the more I enjoyed it … and the more I got out of it.  Alot more out of it.  As Amy Michalak said to me when she asked if I would join the IMBA board "Don't just talk about making the organization better, get involved to make it happen.  Be a part of it, not an observer."

I want to share some of what I have learned:
