Following an extensive national search yielding many great candidates, on May 3 the Chicago House Board of Trustees approved Scott Ammarell as the next Chief Executive Officer of the agency.

Ammarell brings a history in housing services, having most recently served as the Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel for the Chicago Housing Authority. In that role Ammarell was involved in the development and strategic planning of the City of Chicago's Public Housing. His experience prior to his work with the CHA provides further depth in housing development as President and General Counsel for Benson Development Corporation/Provident Home Builders. Ammarell has been equally passionate and involved in the field of HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ services in which he has volunteered or served on boards, including the board of Chicago House's partner agency, Test Positive Aware Network.

"Throughout the selection process, Scott stood out with his depth of experience and his clear vision for the continued growth of Chicago House and our programs, all for the benefit of our clients," said Board Chair Ray Lechner. "We are thrilled to have him as our new CEO, and we look forward to many great years ahead."

Ammarell will begin in his role in mid-May, providing several weeks of overlap with The Reverend Stan Sloan, the current CEO. "I am excited to work beside Scott and about the great energy that he brings to this role. I look forward to introducing him to the staff and to our key stakeholders in the weeks ahead," said Sloan. "I submitted my resignation last September to give the Board and Staff they time they needed to find the right next leader. I am confident that the board has found just that in Scott."

Ammarell joins a staff at Chicago House's Executive level. Judy Perloff remains in her role as Chief Program Officer as does Kiki Dorn as Chief Financial Officer, both in their 16th year of service. Stan Waclaw remains at the helm as Chief Administrative and Human Resources Officer.

"I am thrilled to join Chicago House and to have the opportunity to build upon the legacy created by all of those who have come before me and who serve the organization on a daily basis. I hope to use my experience in the affordable housing world to enhance and expand on the housing and programs that Chicago House provides to the vast community of those in need," said Ammarell. "We must remain vigilant in our efforts to serve the clients of Chicago House and I am truly honored to be a part of that effort. I look forward to the challenges that we will face and to working towards solving them together."
