Located in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, Gunnison Valley Regional Housing Authority (GVRHA) is seeking a visionary and entrepreneurial Executive Director to lead a local and regional housing strategy in this highly desirable mountain community of 17,000 year-round residents.



The Gunnison Valley Regional Housing Authority (GVRHA) was created in 2012 as a regional initiative to provide affordable housing within Gunnison County. It is managed by an intergovernmental agreement among the City of Gunnison, Town of Crested Butte, Town of Mt. Crested Butte, and Gunnison County, each of which have representatives on the nine-member board of directors and contribute financially to the organization.

Operating out of offices in both Gunnison and Crested Butte, GVRHA works to ensure that ALL of those wishing to call this beautiful Valley home find a diverse selection of housing from which to choose.  



The Executive Director is hired by the Board of Directors and works directly with the County and Municipalities on planning, outreach, and implementation of affordable housing. The Director oversees a budget of $600,000 and a team of three experienced and energized staff, with an additional administrative position currently under consideration by the Board. The outgoing Executive Director is retiring after leading the organization for seven of its ten years.

Responsibilities include leading the day-to-day operations of GVRHA programs, collaborating with the Board for strategic planning, supervising staff, property management, Board and public relations, as well as fundraising, budgeting, and financial management.



Bring your fresh ideas and strategic vision – This is a great opportunity for a visionary changemaker. The Board and staff have embraced this leadership transition time as an opportunity to evolve the organization into its next stage. They have gathered for deep thinking around GVRHA services, operations, and role in the region and to eagerly discuss alignment around a future direction. 

A foundation of support– The new ED will benefit from a foundation of support among the Board, staff, elected officials, and institutions. This is a great opportunity to build upon the groundwork of the previous ten years and elevate the organization’s ability to meet their regional vision.



The ideal candidate will have Bachelor’s degree and at least 5 years of relevant experience in the field of affordable housing. Desired experience also includes fundraising, program & project management, and providing regional leadership, vision, and strategy. A growth mindset as well as strong communication and public relations skills are important.
