Landmarks Development Corporation Appoints New Chief Executive Officer
Harold Blye, Chairman of Landmarks Development Corporation (LDC), announced the appointment of Dr. Howard B. Slaughter, Jr. as Chief Executive Officer today.
LDC is a for-profit subsidiary of Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) and it undertakes real estate development and fee-based consulting related to the preservation mission of PHLF.
Dr. Howard B. Slaughter, Jr. joined PHLF as its Director of Community Revitalization programs in 1993. After six years with PHLF, he then joined Fannie Mae to establish the Fannie Mae Pittsburgh Community Business Center office and built it very successfully, assisting more than 24,000 families on becoming homeowners.
In 2007, Landmarks established a new non-profit subsidiary Landmarks Community Capital Corporation (LCCC) to expand its activities in community revitalization within a 250-mile radius of Pittsburgh and asked Dr. Slaughter to return and serve as CEO of that new non-profit.
In his new capacity as CEO for Landmarks Development Corporation, Dr. Slaughter will work with Arthur Ziegler, Jr., President, to create and augment the programs of the for-profit subsidiary.
Dr. Slaughter was also recently invited next month to attend the Yale School of Management: Chief Executive Leadership Institute, a key institutionalized program for Fortune 500 CEO’s across America, which offers practical knowledge on important key leadership and business issues.
