National NeighborWorks Association Welcomes the New CEO of NeighborWorks America - Marietta Rodriguez


Dear NNA Members,
By now you have likely seen the announcement regarding Marietta Rodriguez's selection as NeighborWorks America's next Chief Executive Officer. We are very confident that Marietta will provide the leadership we all want for the future of NWA. Her deep knowledge of the network and proactive approach to NWA's role in the field have positioned her well for this role. Lou and I have already had initial conversations with Marietta and have assured her that NNA stands ready to support her and the senior staff in any way we can through this transition.

Looking back over the last few months, we are appreciative to the NWA Board for inviting NNA to have a meaningful role in the search process this time around and look forward to continuing this productive relationship as we move through the transition. I also want to specifically acknowledge the amazing efforts of Jeff Bryson over the past 9 months. He stepped in and led NWA through a challenging period with consistency, dedication, and a calm grace that kept everyone focused on the tasks at hand. Our network truly couldn't have asked for a better Interim CEO than Jeff, and we will be sad to see him go.

I hope you'll join us in expressing a warm welcome to Marietta as she steps into this important role. As always, your voice makes a difference. Thank you for your continued support and engagement! 

Jesse Ergott, Chair
