Houston Mortgage Bankers Association featured Steve Lufburrow, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Houston, as the speaker for their September 7th monthly luncheon meeting at Maggiano’s restaurant. HMBA president Greg Burkett introduced Lufburrow and noted that Goodwill Industries has over 100 locations across the greater Houston area and employs more than 2,000 people.
In his remarks, Lufburrow presented a brief history of Goodwill and its mission to provide education, training and job opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment, improving the lives of individuals, families and communities. Lufburrow emphasized that he has been fortunate to work with so many people that love life and the opportunities that they are given.
“Steve was very inspirational and challenged us to value everyone that we come in contact with because everyone is important,” said Burkett. “It was a privilege to have him speak to us.”
