HomeAid America Announces New Chief Executive Officer

IRVINE, Calif., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeAid America, a national non-profit provider of housing for homeless families and individuals for more than 20 years, today announced that Peter Simons will be its new chief executive officer, effective immediately. Simons succeeds Jeff Slavin, who recently retired after nearly five years of leading the organization. Simons was the founder and owner of Simons Consulting Group in Denver, Colorado, and has been involved as a volunteer with HomeAid for 15 years.

"Simons' experience in the building industry and his firsthand knowledge of what our local chapters and service providers need makes him an ideal candidate for this role," said Chuck Stein, the chairman of the board of HomeAid America.

Prior to HomeAid, Simons worked for Beazer Homes as the senior vice president of corporate development in Georgia and division president in Colorado. He has been involved as a volunteer with HomeAid Colorado since 2002, serving as its board president for two terms and as a builder captain for two housing projects. Simons is a graduate of the Yale School of Management, where he received a Master's Degree in Public and Private Management.

"I could not be more excited about joining HomeAid America at this critical time in its history," said Simons. "With the economic turnaround in full-force, we need to take advantage of the improving health of the homebuilding industry and leverage its resources to help HomeAid grow and further strengthen the Building Industry Association's response to the nation's homeless problem."
