Experienced Affordable Housing VP Joins Community Preservation Partners

Personnel moves come as developer acquires more properties for rehabilitation, serves thousands of new low-income residents across the nation

IRVINE, Calif. – Michael M. Snowdon, an accomplished affordable housing executive with
decades of experience and a passion for serving low-income residents, has joined Community Preservation Partners (CPP), a rapidly growing developer and rehabilitation specialist with more than 6,500 units in eight states, as its new vice president, asset management.

An Orange County, Calif., native, Snowdon comes from Highridge Costa Investors where he
oversaw a portfolio of more than 275 communities worth more than $3 billion. For CPP, he will be directing the asset management team as it expands into new markets.

“Michael has a deep knowledge of the ins and outs of our industry, but more importantly he
brings a passion for serving the residents of affordable housing communities, which is what we value most at CPP,” said CPP President Anand Kannan. “We are excited to have him on the team as we continue to grow and reach new heights nationwide.”

A dozen years after being created as the development arm of affordable housing pioneer WNC & Associates, Inc., CPP recently surpassed the $1 billion investment mark and launched an initiative to acquire communities and enrich lives in the eastern U.S. For the second straight year, the company last month placed on the nation’s top 10 list for completing the most affordable housing rehabilitations.

“Affordable housing is the backbone of our country, and we all – residents and owners, alike – have a responsibility to instill pride and productivity in our communities,” Snowdon said. “CPP has emerged as one of the industry’s driving forces, especially in the rehabilitation space. I am thrilled to be joining such a talented and dedicated team that really understands and delivers on the mission.”

Snowdon’s hiring follows two other personnel moves at the company. Earlier this year, CPP
executives Seth Gellis and Karen Buckland were each appointed to vice president.
