New Hampshire Housing names Dapice as Christon’s successor
Organization executive to assume top job Jan. 1
Rob Dapice will be taking over as executive director and CEO of the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority on Jan. 1, succeeding Dean Christon, a longtime, well-respected executive of the organization for 34 years, who will be retiring Dec. 31.
A Contoocook resident, Dapice is managing director of New Hampshire Housing’s Management and Development Division, which finances and supports affordable multi-family housing in the state. He joined the organization in 2014 and became director of housing development in 2017 and then managing director in 2019.
Before joining New Hampshire Housing, Dapice served as a project manager for North Branch Construction in Concord and previously was a captain in the U.S. Army and served in Iraq.
“Rob is committed to our mission of promoting affordable housing opportunities for all New Hampshire residents, and has proven abilities as a collaborator and leader,” said New Hampshire Housing Board Chair Donald L. Shumway, adding that “Rob has demonstrated his desire to make a difference to our state’s communities and to work on behalf of those who seek safe and affordable housing.”
Selection of Dapice followed a months-long national search launched after Christon announced his retirement in July.
“Under Dean Christon’s leadership, New Hampshire Housing has earned a reputation for operational excellence, adaptability and compassion,” Dapice said. He added that, as Christon’s successor, he would “continue working towards our shared vision of a New Hampshire with decent, affordable housing for all.”
