Jeff Dombrowski, affordable housing developer to lead GHI as president through 2018

With nearly 20 years of experience in housing program management, I am a dedicated, highly committed leader in real estate with extensive expertise in community assistance and outreach, mortgage lending, and commercial and residential real estate development. I have always focused on doing what’s best for my customers – and that means working with them to identify loan and housing options that best meet their needs while minimizing company risk. I have brought this dedication and expertise with me into highly successful entrepreneurial roles, where I have successfully managed all aspects of operations, sales, and business development to achieve significant market growth and profitability while launching new products and programs. Much of my success can be attributed not only to my aggressive drive and extensive knowledge, but to my ability to liaise with key stakeholders, brokers, government officials, and other contacts to make progress on major projects. In addition, I possess the unique knowledge of managing a 501(c)(3) organization, and the highly specialized requirements inherent.
