Theresa Hatton, director of professional development and industry relations for the White Plains-based Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR), is leaving the region to become the new CEO and executive vice president of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR).
Hatton joined HGAR in July 2018 after serving for eight years as the CEO of Connecticut’s Greenwich Association of Realtors for eight years and was the association executive at the Williamson County Association of Realtors in Franklin, Tennessee, for nearly four years. MAR conducted a five-and-a-half-month nationwide search to fill its leadership role. Hatton replaces Robert N. Authier, who left MAR in November after 23 years at the helm of the association.
“This is an exciting day for both the membership and the professional staff of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors,” says 2019 MAR President Anne Meczywor, broker/associate at Roberts & Associates Realty Inc. in Lenox, Massachusetts. “Through multiple rounds of interviews, Theresa proved to be the most outstanding candidate out of a group of outstanding candidates.”
