Lifetime Achievement Awarded During the 2019 IIUSA EB-5 ConferenceMay 8, 2019
Patrick Hogan has always had the philosophy of putting the CMB EB-5 investor’s goals in front of his own. Through Patrick's leadership, CMB has a 100% project approval rate from the USCIS and has been able to help over 4,700 investors and their families receive an I-526 approval, which allows them to apply for a conditional U.S. permanent residency visa at their consulate interview or apply for an adjustment of status if they are already living in the United States on another visa. Patrick as the CEO of CMB has been able to help nearly 1,200 EB-5 investors achieve an I-829 approval, which removes the conditions on the visa allows the investor and their family to live in the United States permanently. Additionally, these partnerships have been able to return capital to nearly 1,000 EB-5 investors to date. Patrick also decided that CMB should be the first first regional center to have each of these statistics audited by a third-party national accounting firm, BKD LLP, along with each CMB EB-5 partnership’s financials according to GAAP, thereby setting a standard in transparency for the EB-5 industry.
