Down Payment Resource Presents Beverly Faull Affordable Housing Leadership Award to John O’Callaghan
O’Callaghan honored for his positive impact on affordable housing in Atlanta
Atlanta, GA, January 15, 2019 — Down Payment Resource (DPR) is proud to announce John O’Callaghan, President and CEO of the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. (ANDP) as the first recipient of the Beverly Faull Affordable Housing Leadership Award.
The award, named in memory of accomplished real estate veteran Beverly Faull, recognizes an individual who has demonstrated leadership in providing more access to homeownership and affordable housing finance solutions.
As a well respected veteran in the MLS and housing industry and one of DPR’s first employees, Faull believed in the company’s mission to provide greater access and awareness to down payment assistance programs. Faull was responsible for building DPR’s MLS business and putting its tools in the hands of more than 300,000 Realtors across a dozen MLSs.
“Without Beverly’s passion and tenacity, DPR would not be the success it is today,” said Rob Chrane, CEO of Down Payment Resource. “She laid a strong foundation, anchored to an important housing mission, that continues today. We’re proud to introduce this award and honor Beverly’s memory and legacy.”
O’Callaghan has decades of experience advocating for affordable housing in Atlanta and beyond. At ANDP, O’Callaghan leads the organization’s policy and housing development programs and also spearheaded a regional foreclosure response initiative that was awarded the National Housing Conference 2015 Housing Visionary Award. keep reading
