Wendell Addington becomes president of the Federation for Cooperative Housing (FCH), where he supervised the development/acquisition of 24,659 dwelling units in 19 states.
Before this, Wendell conducted a nationwide housing intern program for Ford Foundation, drafted legislation for Michigan State Housing Development Authority, and served as an expert housing witness on behalf of the US Government.
He also served as Secretary for the National Association of Housing Cooperatives, a member of the National Council on Aging, the National Institue of Senior Housing, the National Association for Senior Living Industries, and the Gerontological Society of America.
Dennis Varian joins FCH with decades of experience as a housing executive, formerly an officer at Multicon Properties Inc. and Urban Research Coordinators. He was Executive Director of Michigan Housing Associates, President of Michigan Association of Housing Cooperatives, and served on the Code and Legislative Committee of the Greater Detroit Chamber of Commerce.
He has been a member of the National Association of Housing & Redevelopment Officials, the Michigan Society of Planning Officials, and the President of Associated Management Companies.
Wendell and Dennis leave FCH to become the principals of Housing & Finance Associates with a simple but powerful mantra, “A Great Place to Live at a Price You Can Afford.” They would go on to achieve this without compromising their high integrity.
A word about the H&FA logo…
Housing is symbolized by the roofline;
Finance is symbolized by the bottom line, the ultimate financing consideration;
Associates are typified by the circle, the traditional symbol of people working together.
Wendell and Dennis open their first apartment community Westgate Tower. Together, they would develop affordable housing communities in Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan.
An H&FA Retirement Community combined individual apartments with extensive facilities for social, health maintenance, and recreational programs. Through the cooperation of the State Housing Finance Agency and the city, H&FA would enable seniors of average means to enjoy the lifestyle they deserve.
