Monterey County encompasses some of California’s most stunning scenery and offers an ideal year round Mediterranean climate. Miles of beautiful beaches, spectacular mountain ranges, groves of redwoods, low-rolling foothills, and scenic valleys are characteristics that contribute to the quality of life enjoyed by over 425,000 residents and the numerous tourists who visit the local area year-round. The Housing Authority of the County of Monterey (HACM) is based in Salinas, the County Seat of Monterey County. The proximity to world-class attractions, great weather and the friendly and welcoming community, make Salinas and the surrounding areas an exceptional place.
The new Executive Director will join HACM during a period of financial and organizational stability. In leading a full-time staff of 73 employees, a key priority will be to continue to maintain the organization’s financial stability during a time of regulatory uncertainty at the federal level. In addition, the individual will be expected to be a strong collaborative leader capable of maintaining organizational harmony as well as being an open and collaborative working partner with the Board of Commissioners, HDC and the community. HACM recently converted its entire public housing stock to the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. This transition will require knowledge of HUD Multi-family, Low Income Housing Tax Credits, and other funding sources related to affordable housing properties.
The ideal candidate will be a passionate advocate for affordable housing and will be an adaptable and flexible problem solver. An experience base of five or more years in either a public housing environment, an economic development/redevelopment agency, or a company involved in public housing is required. At least seven years of supervisory management is also required along with an educational background that includes a Bachelor’s degree in a related field. A multi-cultural background with bi-lingual capabilities, along with an MA/MS/MPA or MBA, and a California Real Estate Broker’s license are highly desirable.
