NAMIC announced A. Shuanise Washington as the organization’s new president and CEO, effective immediately. Washington led the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation for five years, overseeing public policy, research, educational and fundraising initiatives. Prior to serving as pres of CBCF, Washington was the founder and CEO of Washington Solutions, LLC, providing strategic counsel to businesses, governments and non-profit organizations.
“Shuanise is a highly-regarded executive with a proven track record of delivering results,” said Joiava Philpott, NAMIC board chair and Cox vp, regulatory affairs, law & policy department. “Her business acumen and leadership at the helm of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation are exactly the kind of visionary work NAMIC and its membership need moving forward. As our industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace and the demographic landscape becomes increasingly diverse, it is important for NAMIC to be at the forefront of that evolution. We are thrilled to have someone of Shuanise’s caliber leading the organization during this time.”
NAMIC’s former chief Eglon Simons announced in January that he was retiring after more than three years in the position.
