(DENVER) – Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) is pleased to announce its new Deputy Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Jaime G. Gomez. Gomez has been promoted from his role as COO, a role and title he will retain while assuming his new position.

Mr. Gomez joined CHFA in 1999, and has served as COO since March 2010. Gomez oversees CHFA's business operations, which include CHFA's affordable housing and community development loan programs, loan servicing, asset management, research and strategy, and marketing and community relations functions.

"Jaime has demonstrated outstanding leadership and a true commitment to CHFA's values and mission. In his new role, he will continue to be a key factor in CHFA's success," said Cris White, executive director and CEO for CHFA.

Prior to his position with CHFA, Gomez worked in several capacities serving both the public and private sectors. He served as manager of strategy development and planning for US West Dex, and spent six years working for the Colorado Office of Economic Development as director of finance and business development, under Governor Roy Romer. In addition, he spent five years working for the Department of Bank Supervision at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (Denver Branch) where he became a managing examiner overseeing a team of examiners, and three years working in the qualified retirement plans divisions of Lincoln Trust Company.

Gomez earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Finance from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and has completed executive leadership programs at both the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business and the University of Denver.

Gomez currently serves as vice chair of Mercy Loan Fund's board of directors, and treasurer and chair of the finance and audit committee for Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver's board. He is also on the steering committee for Mile High Connects, and a member of Governor Hickenlooper's Financial Review Committee for Economic Development.
