“We are excited to welcome Angela to the team and look forward to her leadership in the financial management of Mercy Housing. She brings a compelling blend of strategic experience in affordable housing which I know will be invaluable to us” said Ismael Guerrero, President and CEO.

Prior to NHT, Bruno was a senior director on the Multifamily CFO team at Fannie Mae. During her tenure, she provided financial advice and oversight to Fannie Mae’s Multifamily Business, helping the organization to make informed decisions by providing insights through focused performance metrics and fact-based analyses.

Bruno also spent over five years in management consulting to government and nonprofit clients at Booz Allen Hamilton and Plante Moran focused on executive and information technology strategy, organizational design, change management, business process re-engineering, and financial analysis. Before that, Bruno was a Government Affairs Assistant at Chrysler Group LLC, preparing legislative analyses and position papers, assisting with grant writing, and other outreach activities.

“I am honored to be joining Mercy Housing with its long and rich history of positively impacting communities and putting residents at the center of everything that it does. Mercy Housing’s core values of respect, justice, and mercy resonate with me, and I am in awe of the work done to advance affordable housing. I look forward to partnering with my colleagues in increasing and expanding the organization’s impact in the years to come,” said Bruno.
