The Jacksonville Housing Authority appointed Tyson Montoya as its new chief financial officer, effective July 3. 

He replaces Dennis Lohr, who left the position on May 17.

Montoya, who was chosen after a nationwide search, has experience and expertise in financial management in the public housing sector, according to a June 11 news release.

Montoya was chief financial officer for the Utah Communications Authority in Salt Lake City. The agency supports public safety communications for Utah’s first responders and citizens, according to its website, www.uca911.org. He served for five years at the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City, where he played a pivotal role in converting public housing units to the Rental Assistance Demonstration program.

“He brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the position,” Dunn said in the release. “I’m certain he will be able to bring the stability and leadership that is needed in the department.”

Montoya has a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Utah and a master’s in business administration in accountancy from Westminster College. 

“We look forward to Tyson’s contributions and leadership in his new role in helping the Jacksonville Housing Authority further its mission of providing quality affordable housing to the Jacksonville community,” Housing Authority board chair Heather Horovitz said in the release.
