The Portsmouth Housing Authority Board of Commissioners recently announced the hiring of Craig W. Welch as its new executive director.

Welch, a resident of Portsmouth, replaces PHA’s longtime leader Joe Couture, who served in the position since 2006.

Welch most recently served as vice president of housing at the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund. There he managed a $55 million housing portfolio for the nationally recognized community development financial institution.

He is also a former commercial real estate broker in the city and serves on the Community Development Advisory Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
