New Acting Chair of NYCHA

New Acting Chair of NYCHA

NYCHA’s new Acting Chair Stanley Brezenoff says he's failing at retirement. The long-time public servant from East New York, Brooklyn has worked ceaselessly for New York City since the 1980s. On June 1 he will join NYCHA to continue the work of improving New York City’s public housing.

“Anyone who knows Stan knows he is one of the great public servants in the last generation in this City,” Mayor de Blasio said. “What he has done as First Deputy Mayor, the Head of Port Authority, what he has done recently at Health and Hospitals stabilizing another organization that needed major overhaul. Stan has an extraordinary track record of success.”

The Mayor announced Mr. Brezenoff’s appointment and introduced him to attendees at an April 10 event at Ocean Bay Bayside in Far Rockaway, following Chair Shola Olatoye’s announcement that she would resign at the end of April. He says he’s ready to take on the challenge of “one of the toughest jobs in America” because he believes that government can make a big difference in people’s lives. “I’m committed to working with residents, finding new solutions and making progress that people will see and feel in their communities.”

As Acting Chair, Mr. Brezenoff will partner with NYCHA General Manager Vito Mustaciuolo to continue work on the NextGeneration NYCHA strategic plan, creating safer, cleaner and more connected communities. Mr. Brezenoff says he’ll work to confront decades of disinvestment in public housing, improve front-line services for residents, and replace critical infrastructure like heating systems.
