For their lasting contributions, Debbie Burkart, Percival Vaz, and Arthur and Gilbert Winn are being inducted into AHF’s Affordable Housing Hall of Fame.
Burkart, managing director of supportive housing at the National Equity Fund, has helped finance and structure innovative deals across the country, often for veterans and people experiencing homelessness.
Vaz is the founder and CEO of the AMCAL group of companies, one of the most active developers in the West and South. After initially pursuing a career in electronics, Vaz found his calling in real estate, becoming a leader in developing affordable, market-rate, and student housing.
Arthur Winn is principal of WinnCompanies, the organization he founded 51 years ago. He and his son, Gilbert, who serves as CEO, have grown their business into one of the largest affordable housing firms in the country. Their work has included the restoration of several historic mills and schools into affordable housing.
The inductees will be honored at AHF Live: The Affordable Housing Developers Summit, Nov. 14-16, in Chicago.
