The West Virginia Housing Development Fund welcomes Maggie Leaptrot as its Chief Financial Officer.
Leaptrot’s hiring marks the beginning of a period of transition for the Fund. Longtime employees Julie Davis, Deputy Director of Production, and Crystal Toney, Deputy Director of Administration, both announced their intentions to retire at the end of 2023. Over the next 18 months, Leaptrot will prepare to take over their responsibilities.
“Maggie brings several years of experience, but also a fresh perspective,” said Erica Boggess, the Fund’s Executive Director. “While we will miss Julie and Crystal, Maggie will play a vital role in guiding the Fund into the future. She has
already proven herself to be a real asset to the team, and we are excited to have her on board.”
Leaptrot is working with Davis and Toney to learn all aspects of the Fund’s finances, including financial accounting and reporting, bond issuance, and compliance. She is a graduate of West Virginia State University and has worked in public accounting and for state government agencies and comes to us from West Virginia International Yeager Airport in Charleston, where she served as Chief Financial Officer. She began her new role with the Fund in July.
“I saw moving to the West Virginia Housing Development Fund as a good opportunity to further my career,” Leaptrot said. “I reviewed the Fund’s audit and was impressed with the high standards. Now that I’m here, I see people who are passionate about their work. Everyone says their team is the best or their program is the best, and they truly believe it because they believe in the Fund’s mission.”
