Conrad Egan became President and CEO of the National Housing Conference (NHC) in January 2003, after serving for five years as NHC’s Director of Policy. He retired from that position in 2010. During 2001 and 2002, Mr. Egan was on a leave of absence from NHC so that he could serve as Executive Director of the Millennial Housing Commission, established by the United States Congress to recommend ways to better support good housing for all Americans.
His involvement in community development and housing dates back to 1965 when he worked on local housing activities in Detroit, Michigan. In 1969, Mr. Egan joined the staff of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) serving in a variety of headquarters and field assignments, including serving as Director of the Office of Multifamily Housing Management. He would later rejoin the HUD staff as a Special Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for multifamily programs, and then became a Special Assistant to former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. From 1986 to 1993, Mr. Egan was Executive Vice President of NHP Inc., at the time one of the nation’s largest multifamily property owners and managers.
Mr. Egan’s commitment to housing issues extends beyond the workplace into community service. He previously served as the chairman of the Fairfax County, Virginia, Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
