BATON ROUGE, LA – The Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that they have authorized a nationwide search for their next permanent Executive Director. The purpose of the LHC is to substantially increase the availability of affordable, accessible, and safe residential housing in Louisiana, and the Executive Director is responsible for directing all administrative, financial, and programmatic activities of the organization. The Executive Director must develop and manage a large network of internal and external relationships including non-profit groups, developers, government agencies, and other housing industry experts to create sustainable affordable housing for Louisiana residents.

Anthony “AP” Marulllo, Board Chair of the LHC, said “It is important that we conduct a nationwide search for our next Executive Director. Louisiana citizens deserve to have quality affordable housing and this agency needs a leader who can help shape a vision and plan for our state’s future.” He continued, “We have engaged SSA Consultants, a woman-owned, Hudson-certified management consulting company based in Louisiana to create a robust process to gather stakeholder and public input and conduct the search process.”

Chairman Marullo has appointed a seven-member committee to guide the search process and recommend a finalist to the Board. Steven Jackson, Caddo Parish Commissioner from Shreveport will serve as Chair. Rounding out the committee are Tonya Mabry of Hammond who serves as the Board’s Vice Chair; Jennifer Vidrine, Mayor of Ville Platte; Alfred Harrell of Baton Rouge who serves as Executive Director for the Southern University Foundation; Stacy Head, New Orleans businesswoman; and Richard Winder, Monroe businessman. The committee held its initial meeting on January 11, 2022, to discuss and adopt the search process, public input sessions, and the search’s timeline.

Search Committee Chair Steven Jackson said “It is incredibly important that we find highly qualified and talented individuals who can take this agency to the next level. We encourage everyone who might be interested to apply.”
