National Fair Housing Alliance Announces New Chief Operating Officer

Washington, D.C. — The National Fair Housing Alliance® (NFHA™) is pleased to welcome Timothy Guinan as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO).

As COO, Tim’s primary responsibilities include leading financial management, HR, IT, administration, and organizational performance. He will help NFHA’s board of directors carry out its governance responsibilities, help lead the organization’s strategic planning, and serve on the executive leadership team.

“We are thrilled to welcome Tim to our team and are confident that his decades of experience will be crucial in ensuring our organization’s success as we continue to expand the scope and reach of our advocacy efforts,” said Cat Cloud, Senior Advisor to the President and CEO.

Prior to his role at NFHA, Tim founded N Street Strategies, a consulting firm offering strategic and operational consulting services to the nonprofit sector. He also co-founded Givhero, a venture-backed social impact software platform supporting over 2 million global charities  through corporate employee engagement, well-being, and charitable giving. Tim previously served as the Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Executive Director of PeacePlayers International, a youth development and reconciliation organization with programs in the United States, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Cyprus, and the Middle East.

Tim earned his MBA from The George Washington University School of Business and his undergraduate degree from Miami University, while competing as a Division I athlete. He then spent five years as an adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University, teaching social responsibility.

Tim is a native Washingtonian and a son of social entrepreneurs, who founded multiple organizations to serve Washington’s marginalized communities (e.g., the Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV), Zacchaeus Community Kitchen, Rachael’s Women’s Center, and others).

NFHA also welcomes Monica Reid as Director of Advocacy and Government Affairs.
