Antonio joined the HATT on May 2, 2016 as its new CEO/Executive Director after an extensive search and he is definitely no stranger to the housing industry.

He specializes in compliance services with a focus on, quality assurance/control, business process re-engineering, strategic planning, project management, operations management, contract administration and IT systems compliance. Antonio feels that his eclectic skill set can accommodate the various types of changes in any type of business.
Antonio has participated in several HUD focus groups in Washington D.C. to contribute in the re-engineering of the business systems and protocols and assessment systems. Over the last 15 years, Antonio has provided services for PHA’s and small businesses in the southwest & northeast parts of the United States as well as in the Caribbean. Within that time frame, he was responsible for re-engineering and developing new processes to support the management of current business operations in the areas of asset/property management, maintenance management, and operations management using best practices, software tools, custom databases and other resources for small, medium and large public housing authorities.
