"I am elated to be joining a community that brings together the brightest, most inspirational minds in business with an array of unique opportunities to grow our agency. Access to this elite business community offers valuable insight along with increased visibility, connections, and growth for Dothan Housing. After converting our properties to the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program and closing our public housing program to become a voucher-only agency, we implemented our C-Suite corporate business model. We have embraced our social entrepreneurial efforts to own and manage diverse properties like the private sector. The Business Journals Leadership Trust will allow me to illustrate how we can effectively utilize the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) funding for mixed-income, mixed-finance, and mixed-use real estate development opportunities. Additionally, the Business Journals Leadership Trust will enhance our efforts to recruit, attract, and retain a talented and diverse workforce comprised of the best and brightest in the affordable housing industry. As Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), I will use this platform to provide landlords and investors with real estate tips to increase their cash flow, maximize their profits and return on investment. Finally, my participation will help Dothan Housing further cement its leadership role in the affordable housing industry and showcase the community economic development activity in the Dothan-Wiregrass metro area," said Dr. Threatt.
