Mayor Michael A. Nutter last week announced the retirement of Anthony McIntosh, Executive Vice President of the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (PHDC), a private, non-profit that provides housing, home repair programs and other services to low- to moderate-income individuals.
McIntosh was appointed by the board of directors in 1998. During his tenure, PHDC developed more than 560 housing units for Philadelphians as well as provided weatherization services, lead paint abatement assistance, and electric, plumbing and heating system repair to thousands of residents. Mr. McIntosh’s retirement will be effective January 2, 2012.
“Tony has an incredible breadth of experience in housing and community development, and he made it his life’s work to serve the citizens of Philadelphia,” said Mayor Nutter. “The City will miss him and his leadership at PHDC, and I wish him luck and success as he transitions to the next phase of his life.”
Prior to joining PHDC, Mr. McIntosh served as Director of the Neighborhood Program Coordination Division of the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD). He also previously served as an urban renewal technician with the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority.
Mr. McIntosh received his undergraduate degree from Temple University and has completed real estate courses at Pennsylvania State University.
Anthony McIntosh added, “It has been rewarding and an honor to spend my career working for the City. I would like to thank the Mayor, his Administration, the PHDC Board and staff, and the citizens of Philadelphia for their support over the years.”
