Renée Sandell

Chief Operating Officer

Renée has been active in the development, financing, construction and management of affordable housing since 1989 and has been involved in the development of more than 3,000 units nationwide. She manages the operations of the foundation with ease and is responsible for the financial procurement for all types of debt and syndication of tax credits for project equity as well as the foundation’s internal operating budgets.  She also helps manage the development process from acquisition, site planning, financing and investor relations, to construction and stabilization. She has held a variety of senior roles in the industry, including First Vice President and Regional Development Director for Transom Development, a subsidiary of SunTrust.

From the first move-in at the first development she worked at, she was hooked. After all these years, seeing how young families (both two parent & single parent) can improve their lives and lifestyles, as well as the great programs for seniors, she can’t think of anything else she’d rather do.
