« I met Joel when our daughters became friends in second grade. Since then, he's been a great advocate for my daughter as well as for other kids in her circle. He helped prepare my daughter for an audition and was reassuring, encouraging, and patient -- that's so important in a tutor, and parents often can't be patient with their own kids. And with 40 years of experience in law and public housing, he's more than qualified to tutor in civics. He'll do a great job and will make them think. »

Joel's resume

Experience – Affordable Housing Development :
Vice President, KCG Development (June 1, 2018-October 1, 2019) - During my tenure at KCG I spearheaded development in the Northeast primarily in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. I successfully achieved site control with respect to 347 mixed income housing units in mixed use projects representing $86.75MM in development activity. Site control was achieved through private acquisition and by virtue of my leadership of development teams who were selected by municipalities in connection with the redevelopment of vacant land and existing dilapidated school buildings.

Senior Vice President, The Michaels Organization (January, 2016-April 1, 2018) – In this capacity, I led the Northeast Region and reported to the President of the Company. Centered in New Jersey where the company’s home office is located, the Northeast Region contains the largest number of projects. My daily responsibilities included: supervising Vice Presidents of Development, Development Managers and Analysts in order to maintain the project pipeline; expedite the funding and closing of projects; and meet the region’s revenue and program objectives.
Regional Vice President, The Michaels Development Company (March, 1998-September, 2010) Since joining the Michaels Development Team as a Vice President of Development in 1998, I have overseen redevelopment efforts in New Jersey, Maryland and Oklahoma yielding 3,862 housing units valued in excess of $838 million dollars. A great deal of this work involved mixed finance transactions utilizing the HOPE VI program. Often in collaboration with public housing authorities, I led diverse development teams who revitalized distressed low income housing and created vibrant mixed income communities.

Professional Designation: Admitted to the Bar, State of New Jersey and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, February 1991, Inactive in NJ.

Legal Experience: Associate, Freeman, Zeller and Bryant (October, 1994-March, 1996) In private practice, my predominant activity included the representation of affordable housing developers and community development corporations. Beyond the affordable housing practice I served as bond counsel with respect to a public improvement project spearheaded by a local municipality. I was also given primary responsibility in connection with a commercial matter that involved appearing in both State and Federal Courts. Ultimately, I was successful in the NJ Appellate Division.
Teaching Experience: Housing Development Consultant and Trainer, The Affordable Housing and Community Development Network of NJ. (March, 1996-March, 1998) At the Network, I provided consulting services to not for profit housing developers and community development corporations. I also taught in a technical assistance training program specializing in affordable housing development and financial modeling.

Governmental Experience: Housing Program Manager, NJDCA, Division of Housing, Neighborhood Preservation Balanced Housing Program (March, 1988 – October, 1994)
During my tenure, this program served as a primary source of funding for low and moderate income housing in the State of New Jersey. The Balanced Housing Program provided capital funding allowing municipalities throughout the State to meet their affordable housing obligations. Serving as a program manager, I evaluated funding requests and provided technical assistance to community development corporations primarily in the City of Camden helping them to bring their affordable housing projects to fruition. During this time period, I developed the project leadership skills and technical proficiency with low income housing tax credits that would serve me throughout the balance of my career.

Education:

Rutgers University School of Law, Juris Doctorate, 1990
Michigan State University, BA, Urban Policy, 1980
