Enterprise Community Partners has named Judi Kende senior vice president and chief program officer of its Solutions division, which operates nationwide with program, policy, advisory and capacity-building arms at the national, state and local levels, the company said in a press release.
The company said Kende will remain based in Enterprise’s New York City office for the newly created position. Kende previously served as vice president and New York market leader. She will report to and collaborate with Jacqueline Waggoner, the newly appointed president of Solutions.
“At this moment, when 40 million Americans are at risk of eviction, we need a leader who can respond with urgency, while at the same time mobilizing resources to eliminate systemic and longstanding barriers to affordable homes,” said Waggoner. “Judi is that leader.”
