BURLINGTON — The Vermont Housing Finance Agency reports that David Adams, chief of program operations, will retire Nov. 17. At the same time, Maura Collins will be promoted to the position of deputy director. “Dave has expertly led our programs through the turbulent economic and mortgage industry changes of the past two decades,” said VHFA Executive Director Sarah Carpenter.
Adams, a longtime Jericho resident, was inducted into the New England Mortgage Bankers Hall of Fame in 2012. He joined VHFA in 1999.
Collins joined VHFA in 2002, and is currently the agency’s director of policy and administration. In her new role, Collins will oversee the Homeownership, Development, Asset Management and Compliance and Information Technology departments.
VHFA is a nonprofit agency created in 1974 by the Vermont Legislature to finance and promote affordable housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income Vermonters.
