Recognized for his diversity in project types, Druker’s developments have also received awards from Boston’s Preservation Alliance. His company currently owns and manages two hotels in Boston.
Active in civic and philanthropic endeavors in the Boston community, Druker serves or has served on the boards of Beth Israel Hospital, Belmont Hill School, Friends of the Public Garden, Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the New England Aquarium, Boston Foundation for Architecture, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Franklin & Marshall College and others.

Druker is an active member of the Downtown Crossing Business Improvement District, which he helped found, the Boylston Street Zoning Committee, and PruPac, the citizen’s review group which oversaw the redevelopment of the Prudential Center. He was chairman of the Artery Business Design Review Committee that helped to determine what was to be designed and developed over the twenty-seven acres resulting from the depression of the Central Artery, and he is also a member of ABC’s executive committee.
Druker completed his undergraduate studies at Franklin & Marshall College and his graduate studies at Columbia University Graduate School of Business.
