Reed, who most recently served as The Manager of Programs and Operations for the National Housing Team of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), takes the helm at Habitat on Monday, December 6.

“We could not be more pleased,” said Andrea Petray, president of the San Diego Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors. “Kwofi brings big ideas and a wealth of experience in designing innovative affordable homeownership strategies, nonprofit organizational development, and in financing of affordable housing, economic development, and community projects. His skill set and outside the box vision will serve Habitat well as we strive to increase Habitat’s impact in our community.”

Reed is a graduate of Fisk University in Nashville, TN, holds a law degree from Georgetown University and is a member of the California Bar.

“Housing is a critical issue in San Diego County, and one that I am passionate about.
