Middleburg Communities has appointed seasoned affordable housing leader, Kwaku (KC) George, as Principal, Head of Affordable and Workforce Housing.
In this role, George will lead and execute the implementation of Middleburg’s affordable and workforce housing strategic vision and development pipeline throughout the Southeast. He will also focus on developing, managing, and sourcing capital and partnerships that are conducive to increasing the production of affordable housing.

His understanding of workforce housing dynamics, financing and organisational partnerships will elevate and accelerate our work, allowing us to add to the stock of safe, modern, well-managed attainable housing in our target markets.”

His experience includes mixed-use and mixed-income development, multi-family tax credit development, public-private partnerships with municipal agencies and affordable housing developers. Most recently, he served as VP/Regional Director for the National Development Council (NDC), one of the nation’s most experienced entities specialising in affordable housing, real estate and economic development strategies. Prior to joining NDC, George was the Senior Director of Housing Finance and Administration for the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc (ANDP) and Community Redevelopment Loan and Investment Fund (CRLIF).
