The National Center for Healthy Housing is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a transition in leadership at the organization. Amanda Reddy, currently Director of Strategy and Impact, will succeed Nancy Rockett Eldridge as Executive Director, effective May 15, 2017. Ms. Eldridge will lead the Well-Home Network, an exciting new initiative that NCHH has been proud to foster and develop over the past 18 months.
“I am thrilled about the opportunities that exist for both NCHH and the Well-Home Network,” said Ms. Eldridge, commenting on her new role as Director of the Well-Home Network. “I have worked with our Executive Committee and the full Board on talent development and succession plans. Together, we have great confidence that Amanda Reddy is prepared to lead NCHH forward as it advances its mission of securing healthy housing for all.”
Ms. Eldridge and Ms. Reddy worked closely together throughout the planning period. “I am truly honored and humbled to be selected by the Board to succeed Nancy,” said Ms. Reddy. “Nancy has offered valued support and mentoring to me. The Well-Home Network fills a critical need for older adults, and NCHH has shown that it is once again at the forefront of positive change by serving as an incubator for this concept.”
“The Board has been thoroughly impressed by the passion and leadership qualities that Amanda Reddy has displayed at NCHH,” said Marcheta Gillam, chair of NCHH’s Board of Directors. “As we celebrate our 25th anniversary as an organization dedicated to promoting healthy housing policies, we look forward to working with Ms. Reddy to improve health and reduce health disparities nationwide.”
Ms. Reddy is enthusiastic about the future of healthy housing and NCHH’s role in advancing it: “I am committed to working with our Board and our talented staff to continue to take advantage of the enormous opportunities in front of us and to deliver on the premise that NCHH was founded on—that better housing can be a powerful platform for better health.”
