WASHINGTON – Kimani Little of Federal Home Loan Bank of New York and Connie Wright of Wells Fargo have joined NHC’s Board of Governors, the National Housing Conference (NHC) announced.
“Kimani Little and Connie Wright bring a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to affordable housing and the mission of NHC,” said David M. Dworkin, president and CEO. “We appreciate their willingness to contribute to NHC’s mission to ensure everyone in America has an equal opportunity to live in a quality, affordable home in a thriving community,” Dworkin said.
Both Wright and Little bring a passion for NHC’s work and a breadth of knowledge and expertise, having over 50 years of combined experience in banking and housing.
“It’s a great honor to join NHC’s Board of Governors. I believe strongly in leveraging financial support with human capital. Serving on this board to help NHC to execute against Wells Fargo’s new strategic direction provides us with great opportunity to accomplish that goal,” said Connie Wright, senior vice president of Wells Fargo Philanthropy Team.
“I am humbled and honored at the opportunity to join the NHC Board of Governors. My parents, a real estate broker and an affordable housing advocate, taught me that safe, decent, and affordable housing is instrumental in supporting families and building communities,” said Little, vice president of government relations at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York. “In this new role with the NHC Board, I draw inspiration from this sentiment attributed to Mother Teresa: ‘You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things.’”
“We are very pleased to welcome Kimani and Connie to the NHC Board of Governors,” said Linda Mandolini, NHC Board Chair and president of Eden Housing. “Their skills and experience are an asset that will contribute to NHC’s future growth and effectiveness.”
