Amy Klaben Stepping Down as President of Homeport
Homeport President & CEO Amy Klaben announced today that she will be leaving her position with the affordable housing organization at the end of 2015, following 16 years of service. She will remain onboard as an advisor through April to assist with the transition period while Homeport board member Bruce Luecke begins as Interim Director effective January 1st.
“We are thankful for Amy’s long-service to Homeport,” said Homeport Board Chair Tom O’Hara in a statement issued today. “Under her leadership, we have grown from 800 to 2,200 apartments and homes.”
Klaben spoke with Columbus Underground earlier this year for an indepth two part article about the future of affordable housing in our city. She specifically pointed out growing needs for senior housing, and advocated for a regional approach to affordable housing that includes sites in all types of communities, both urban and suburban. Additionally, Klaben spoke with CU last week about Homeport’s role in the new Affordable Housing Alliance.
Homeport will begin a search process for a new President in early 2016.
