NeighborWorks America elected Grovetta Gardineer as their board chairman. This appointment is effective as of June 28, 2016, according to the announcement from the company.

Gardineer is the successor to Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry, who had been the chairman since March 2014. During his tenure, Curry led the corporation as it managed and invested stakeholder funds that resulted in more than $27 billion of investment over the past five years in communities across the United States by the NeighborWorks network.

Before being elected as board chairman, Gardineer served as vice chairman of the board from December 2013 through March 2014 and chairman from June 2005 to April 2012. NeighborWorks America’s board consists of the heads of the financial regulatory agencies and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or their statutorily designated representatives.

“All of us at NeighborWorks are honored and excited to have Grovetta lead the board of directors and help guide the organization as it begins a new five-year strategic plan,” said Paul Weech, NeighborWorks America president and CEO. “Her experience and commitment to community development and operational excellence will enhance the corporation’s ability to meet its mission and help every community be a place of opportunity.”

In this role, Gardineer will provide strategic leadership and oversight in support of NeighborWorks America’s mission to create economic opportunities, further the ability of people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen communities.

“It is a tremendous honor to chair an organization with such an important mission of enabling quality and affordable rental housing and homeownership,” Gardineer said. “Through education, access and empowerment, NeighborWorks strengthens the foundations of communities and enriches individuals’ lives throughout our nation.”
