Business Development Officer
Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency
My career with the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency is an extension of some initiatives in my personal life. My parents instilled in me how important it is to view others from their own life’s perspective and see how I have accessed paths not available to everyone.
Since graduating from James Madison University in 2002, I have worked to find ways to extend opportunities to people. I’m fortunate to have a career that compensates me to travel the state promoting affordable homeownership opportunities to low- to moderate-income individuals and families. I help people achieve the “American Dream.”
Much of my spare time is spent coordinating volunteers for the restaurant-style Common Ground Community Breakfasts at Shared Ministry, Unitarian Church of Harrisburg. At these breakfasts, neighbors share a meal with one another while tapping some of Allison Hill’s many resources. Each breakfast requires approximately 30 volunteers and serves between 250-450 meals.
President & CEO
Strand Capitol Performing Arts Center
Ken has had a long and diverse career as a consultant and senior staff member in the Arts. Much of his work has been with arts organizations under stress, and he has been recognized for his work in programming,
education, fiscal management, sales and community outreach, as well as facilities management.
He has led fundraising efforts that have resulted in more than $60 million in operating, capital and endowment funds. He has taught at universities and colleges, and serves as an expert witness for legal cases
regarding contract disputes, intellectual property and personal injury in performing arts facilities.
Before coming to the Strand-Capitol, Ken was at the Stamford Center for the Arts in Connecticut, where he reversed a five-year deficit trend.
Before Stamford, he was the executive director of The Grand Opera House in Wilmington Delaware, where he was honored by Delaware’s governor for his contributions to the Arts.
