FRANKFORT, KY — Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), the state housing finance agency, announces Lisa Beran as its new interim executive director and chief executive officer after Edwin King announced his resignation to enter the private sector.

Ms. Beran formerly served as deputy executive director and general counsel of KHC, and had retired in March 2019, but returns as interim executive director on Monday, August 19, for a smooth transition.

“We appreciate Edwin King’s time of service to Kentucky Housing Corporation as executive director; he will be greatly missed,” said KHC’s Board of Directors Chair, William Summers, V. “Lisa Beran brings her wealth of knowledge back to KHC, and the Corporation will continue thriving under her leadership as one of the best Housing Finance Agencies in the nation.”

“I am proud to have led KHC over the last two years to encourage housing production and new solutions that help underserved and growing populations,” said Edwin King. “Lisa Beran will continue to lead the way and champion initiatives that strengthen Kentucky.”
