Veteran Association Executive Named New CEO of HGAR
Congratulations to veteran visionary association executive Lynda Fernandez who this week was named the new Chief Executive Officer of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR). Fernandez, who is currently the CEO of the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors, culminates an extensive and comprehensive nine-month national search by BCW Member HGAR.
Fernandez is scheduled to take her new position at HGAR on or about Sept. 1, 2023. She has more than 20 years of experience in association management, government affairs, communications and international business development. She is a Certified Association Executive (CAE), Realtor Association Certified Executive (RCE), and a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS).
“After concluding a thoughtful, diligent and extensive nationwide search, the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors is pleased to announce that Lynda Fernandez has been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors to become the new Chief Executive Officer of HGAR,” said HGAR President D’Anzica. “As a current Association CEO, and someone who has served as a former top executive at the nation’s largest local Realtor association for more than 15 years, Lynda represents a new generation of leadership. Lynda is a change-agent who is results-driven, dynamic and multilingual.”
“I am very excited to be joining an impressive organization like HGAR and am looking forward to continuing its great legacy as I work with the exceptional leadership to advance their vision,” said Fernandez.
Fernandez was involved in a number of significant association merger transactions, including the historic 2010 merger between The Realtor Association of Greater Miami and the Beaches and the Realtor Association of Miami-Dade County, which created the Miami Association of Realtors. At the time it was the largest merger in the history of the National Association of Realtors and brought together 23,000 Realtors in South Florida, and which is now the largest local Realtors association in the nation.
Fernandez previously held several posts with the Miami Association of Realtors, where she served as Miami’s Chief of Communications & Global from Sept. 2018-April 2021. Previously, she was the Senior Vice President of Public Relations and International for Miami for almost 14 years.
