The Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) announced today that it has hired Kimberly Latimer-Nelligan as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead its lending and risk management operations, and oversee the development of new strategic initiatives and new programs. LIIF’s President and CEO, Nancy O. Andrews, noted, “With Kim’s leadership, we will amplify our success by growing new program strategies, new industry sectors and new products. I am thrilled to welcome Kim to LIIF. Her desire to work at LIIF speaks volumes about her commitment to LIIF’s mission of serving the very poor.”
As a leader in the Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) field, LIIF, a nonprofit organization headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Los Angeles and New York City, is making a critical difference to hundreds of thousands of low income individuals through its four programs – affordable housing, education, child care and public policy – to help alleviate poverty for disadvantaged communities.
As COO, Ms. Latimer-Nelligan will build on LIIF’s success of serving 620,000 people in 26 states over its 23-year history. “I am immensely proud to join the team at LIIF; their leadership and innovation within the CDFI field is unsurpassed,” said Ms. Latimer-Nelligan.
Ms. Latimer-Nelligan’s background in community capital is extensive, and uniquely positions her to take on the role as COO with LIIF.
