Low-income housing tax credit syndicator National Equity Fund (NEF) has named Matthew Reilein as president and CEO, effective June 1. Reilein will oversee all day-to-day operations of the Chicago-based nonprofit, succeeding Joseph S. Hagan who is retiring after 19 years with the organization.
“Reilein brings a wealth of experience in community finance, development and impact investing, having spent more than 15 years building relationships and leading teams to deliver market-driven capital to low-income communities,” said Edward Sigler, NEF’s chairman.
Sigler led an executive search committee that partnered with Korn Ferry on a national search that began with a pool of more than 150 candidates.
Reilein joins NEF from Cresset Partners, where he served as managing director and partner overseeing community development and part of the Opportunity Zone team.
“I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to help build upon National Equity Fund’s legacy of leadership in affordable housing,” said Reilein.
