Client Spotlight: Chicago Housing Authority

Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) first retained David Gomez & Associates (DG&A) in January 2012 as their trusted executive search partner for the two-senior level searches of Chief Financial Officer and Budget Director. Since knocking both of the searches out of the park, CHA has continued to partner with DG&A on multiple searches such as Executive Vice President of Development and Chief Housing Officer. 

CHA is the largest owner of rental housing in the city of Chicago, providing homes to more than 50,000 families and individuals, while supporting healthy communities in neighborhoods all across the city. CHA has more than 9,200 apartments in buildings designated for seniors and over 11,400 units in family and other housing types. It also oversees the administration of 37,000 Housing Choice vouchers that allow low-income families to rent in the private market.

Recently, CHA contributed to the largest single increase in occupancy rates in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Region V, bringing 558 units online. CHA was able to do this by exceeding this HUD-issued challenge to increase leasing goals by 500 units – resulting in a net increase of 588 over the fiscal year.

DG&A is proud to call Chicago Housing Authority a client and looks forward to continuing to build a partnership based off of performance.
