Earl Rogers, III, on behalf of Frontier Housing’s Board of Directors, is pleased to announce that Tom Manning-Beavin has been selected to serve as Frontier Housing’s new President & CEO. Frontier’s Board of Directors is confident that with Tom’s long and productive track record in the affordable housing field, he is the best choice to ensure the steady progression of Frontier’s programs serving eastern Kentucky. With his experience, skills, and professional ethics, Tom has demonstrated a heart for the mission of providing affordable housing solutions to build better communities.
In an affordable housing career spanning more than 25 years, Tom has worked in some of the hardest to serve rural communities in America, many of them in central Appalachia. He knows first-hand that local housing nonprofits are indispensable in the delivery of affordable housing; they function as conduits for funding that cannot reach communities any other way, and they develop services which meet growing and evolving needs in their communities. Tom has worked for four housing development organizations in his career, and has managed residential construction, originated mortgage loans and managed grants which funded the development and rehabilitation of homes, handled the asset management of a multifamily portfolio, and led organizations to dynamic growth in housing production. His most recent position was Director of Housing at Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation in London, KY. His first day at Frontier will be April 16.
The Board would like to thank Tom Carew, the Interim President & CEO, who most graciously stepped up to cover the bases at Frontier while it conducted a national search for its fourth President and CEO.
