“This has been in the works for some time” explained Cinnaire President and CEO Mark McDaniel. “As we have needed Jim to spend more time on geographic and programmatic growth, Kevin has taken on increasing responsibility for the internal operations of the company. Our new organizational structure, and formalizing the role of CSO, is a timely response to the opportunities and challenges we will face going forward.”

In his new role, Jim will be responsible for developing Cinnaire’s strategic direction, translating it into action for Cinnaire’s employees across functions and business units, and driving organizational change. In addition, he will be responsible for assessing whether strategic initiatives are in alignment with Cinnaire’s corporate culture and mission.  Working closely with the Cinnaire executive staff, Jim will help direct the marketing and business development work of Cinnaire.  He will continue to oversee Cinnaire’s capital development and public policy work.

As COO, Kevin will oversee the organization’s major business operations and foster employee alignment with Cinnaire’s corporate goals.  He will direct the day-to-day operations of the tax credit investing division, underwriting, asset management, administrative services and legal services functions of the company.
