In January Michael Monte will take the reigns as CEO of Champlain Housing Trust, a position currently held by Brenda Torpy.
His current duties will be assumed by Cheryl Read, who is now director of human resources and chief administrative officer. A resident of Charlotte, she has worked for Champlain Housing Trust since 2008, initially with the housing loan fund.
Amy Demetrowitz, director of real estate development, will be the new chief operating officer. Demetrowitz has more than 25 years under her belt at the organization, developing hundreds of affordable homes and multiple community buildings in her tenure. She and her family live in South Burlington.
“It goes to the strength of the organization to have people of this caliber and experience ready and able to assume these added responsibilities,” Torpy said.
