Clifford P. Harrison has combined professional achievement with community engagement, using a bachelor’s degree in business management from Northeastern’s College of Professional Studies as both a launchpad for success in commercial real estate and a foundation from which to continue his education. Even as he continues to build his career, he is set to complete a master’s in accounting at Southern New Hampshire University in 2021.
Clifford’s first job was as an analyst at Blue Hills Bank in Hyde Park, Mass. He went on to join Santander Bank where, as branch manager, he tackled the complex problems related to deposit and loan portfolios, mentored branch staff, and expanded revenue though loans, deposits, investments and other banking products. It was during his time at Santander that Clifford enrolled at Northeastern’s Foundation Year program, a rigorous and supportive first-year college experience for Boston residents which led to his business management degree studies and graduation.
Equipped with a degree and a new set of skills, Clifford next worked at Belmont Savings Bank, where he identified solutions to client needs using the customer relationship management tool Salesforce, developed relationships with prospects, settled and reconciled wire activity and cash-management for high-net-worth clients, and prepared proposals related to pricing/cost benefit models, analysis and cash management. Currently an associate broker at the commercial real estate company Cushman & Wakefield, he focuses on tenant representation in the lease and sale of office space and has contributed to successful mergers and acquisitions involving community banks, bolstering sales and increasing community resources.
Always interested in giving back, Clifford has also remained active in his community. He serves on the board of two nonprofit organizations—Nativity Preparatory School, an all-boys Jesuit middle school in Jamaica Plain, and EVkids, a tutoring and mentorship program for low-income and academically vulnerable youth.
