From the Fresno Bee:
Members of the board of commissioners of the Housing Authorities of the City and County of Fresno named Angie Nguyen interim CEO during a special meeting on Thursday, nine days after they failed to fill the position at a regularly scheduled February meeting.
Nguyen, chief of staff and director of Strategic Initiatives & Housing Programs, will lead the agency — the largest housing provider in Fresno County — starting April 1.
Preston Prince, outgoing CEO, will depart March 31 to become the executive director of the Santa Clara County Housing Authority.
Nguyen will become the first female and first person of color to lead the Fresno Housing Authority in its 80-year history.
“Tonight’s action appointing Angie Nguyen is a clear indicator that the board has complete confidence in the leadership team at Fresno Housing,” said Cary Catalano, county chair of the Fresno Housing Board of Commissioners. “The agency will continue, without interruption, the important work around resident services, homelessness, sustaining neighborhoods of opportunity, real-estate development and so much more.”
