Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) and the Citi Foundation today announced the selection of 50 Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) professionals to take part in the Citi Leadership Program for Opportunity Finance. Jon Rogers is one of the professionals selected for this program.
The 10-month course begins in January.
Jon Rogers, Executive Vice President of Lending at Fahe was chosen from more than 120 applicants nationwide. The selections reflect the diversity of CDFIs and the low-income, low-wealth, and other disadvantaged communities they serve.
“Developed by CDFIs for CDFIs, the program supports professionals who strive to lead transformational—structural and systemic—change,” said Mark Pinsky, CEO of OFN. “OFN is excited to be able to offer this unique CDFI leadership program with the generous support of the Citi Foundation, which has supported the CDFI industry for more than 20 years.”
Participants come from 21 states and the District of Columbia. They represent a variety of CDFI types and specialties, including commercial real estate lending, microfinance, consumer finance, and affordable-housing finance.
