Leadership change at CHIP

President and CEO Dave Ferrier is moving on; VP named interim head

Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) President and CEO Dave Ferrier is moving on from the organization and Vice President Kris Zappettini (pictured) has been named the interim president.

Ferrier recently accepted a position as housing director for the Rural Community Assistance Corp., one of CHIP’s partner organizations, according to a CHIP press release.

“Now, 35 years later, it’s time for me to move to the next phase of my life and leave CHIP in the hands of the dedicated staff and under the direction of a fantastic board of directors,” Ferrier said in the release. He has been with CHIP, which provides affordable housing and services in seven Northern California counties, since 1983.
