The New York City Housing Authority has hired a new general manager to oversee operations at public housing developments, as the agency remains under fire for inefficient operations. Last week, the agency announced it was filling two top management positions at the agency. Cecil House, seen above left with NYCHA Chairman John Rhea, was a top executive at the utility giant Southern California Edison and will take over as NYCHA’s general manager, a position that had been unfilled since 2010. NYCHA has also named Andreas Spitzer as its new chief financial officer. He had been serving in that role in an acting capacity for the past year. Last week’s report also recommended an overhaul of the agency’s board, including eliminating two paid positions, but those changes are yet to come.
