The Greater Charlotte Apartment Association has named UNC Charlotte alumna Kim S. Graham as its new executive director.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Kim as our new executive director,” said Jennings Snider, president of the association’s board of directors and Chief Financial Officer with SYNCO Properties. “Kim is an outstanding fit for us, given her strong background in housing, public policy, community engagement and nonprofits. Her management and interpersonal skills are peerless.”
Graham earned a Master of Public Administration degree from UNC Charlotte and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Johnson C. Smith University. The Gerald G. Fox MPA Program is housed in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. She most recently served as senior vice president of outreach and fund development with The Housing Partnership, a Charlotte-based housing nonprofit corporation. She will assume her new position on December 1, replacing Ken Szymanski, who will retire at the end of 2018 concluding a 32-year tenure as GCAA’s executive director.
