BOSTON --- The Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP) has named Cynthia Mohammed Director of Portfolio Management. She will be responsible for overseeing MHP’s growing portfolio of multi-familly loans for affordable housing.
Mohammed joined MHP in 1998 as a portfolio analyst and has risen steadily throughout her career. Since 2016, she has served as portfolio management’s deputy director. She will oversee a strong and diverse multifamily portfolio that totals $849 million today and is expected to surpass $1 billion in the next few years.
Prior to MHP, Mohammed was an associate in the audit group at Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP, where she worked for a variety of public, private and nonprofit clients. She has a bachelor's degree in public policy from Brown University and has also done graduate work in accounting at USC.
“Cynthia has successfully managed the most complicated loans in MHP’s portfolio, and she is an expert in tracking and monitoring the costs associated with operating affordable multifamily rental developments and in providing insights that help these properties perform efficiently for owners and residents,” said Mark Curtiss, MHP’s managing director. “She has the respect of her team and we are excited to have her in charge as our portfolio of multifamily loans grows to over $1 billion.”
Mohammed replaces Geoff MacAdie, who has been MHP’s director of portfolio management since 2004. MacAdie will remain at MHP as a senior advisor and senior portfolio manager.
“During Geoff’s tenure as director, our servicing portfolio has grown from $153 million to almost $850 million and our percentage of problems loans have dropped from five percent to 2.1 percent, with no loan losses in the history of the portfolio” said Curtiss. “Thanks to his capable leadership and the work of his team, Cynthia is taking over a strong and diverse portfolio.”
