ATLANTA -- The Tennessee Housing Development Agency ended its six-month search for an executive director by naming to the post Alton E. Brown, formerly a senior loan manager with Fidelity Federal Bank in Nashville.

Mr. Brown was chosen last Thursday by unanimous vote of the agency's 18-member board of directors and comes to the housing unit following the April dismissal of former executive director Thomas P. Lawrence 2d. Mr. Brown, the fifth executive director of the agency since its creation by Tennessee's General Assembly in 1978, will begin his new job next week.
