Terra Search Places Kenneth Trigueiro as CEO of Peoples' Self-Help Housing

Terra Search Partners is pleased to announce the recent completion of our search to assist Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) in securing a new Chief Executive Officer. Kenneth Trigueiro, the former Executive Vice President at PSHH, assumed the CEO role at the beginning of October.

Ken joined PSHH in 2005 coming from a longtime and distinguished career in banking and affordable housing development. Over the past 15 years, he is proud to have originated and developed 18 rental projects, many transformed from rundown and neglected investments, representing more than 600 units and housing for over 2,000 people. He earned his undergraduate degree in Agricultural Business Management from California Polytechnic and his MBA in Finance and Banking from Golden Gate University, San Francisco.

Founded in 1970, PSHH is the longest-serving nonprofit affordable housing organization on the Central Coast. With a mission of building homes and providing services to strengthen communities and change lives, PSHH serves low-income households, working families, seniors, veterans, those living with disabilities, and the formerly homeless. It also provides homeownership opportunities through a self-help, “sweat equity” program that has seen over 1,200 homes successfully completed. PSHH has a presence in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Monterey counties, manages nearly 2,000 rental units, and employs over 200 staff members.

Our friends in the business were most helpful in this search engagement. PSHH and Terra Search Partners appreciate your support and assistance.

This search was conducted by Greg Melanson, Partner, Ellen Klasson, Managing Director, and Ally Sherman, Principal.
