Randall L. Geese
Executive Director

Randall Geese was hired in October, 2004 as Executive Director of the Wheeling Housing Authority.  His career in subsidized and affordable housing began in 1981 with the Coshocton Metropolitan Housing Authority, and he became its Executive Director in 1986.  He continued working with housing authorities as Executive Director until 1998, at which time he became a consultant with a national consulting firm working with housing authorities across the country.  In 2003, he was employed by the Zanesville Metropolitan Housing Authority and was employed there until accepting the Executive Director's position here in Wheeling.  Mr. Geese is and has been active in a variety of local, state, and national housing advocacy groups.

During the past few years, the Wheeling Housing Authority has implemented several changes.  These include the HOPE VI project which will be completed during 2005.  This project provided for the demolition of older, outdated public housing units with new energy efficient units that greatly improved the living conditions of the residents and the appearance of the neighborhoods where those units are located.

In addition, the Wheeling Housing Authority has utilized funding received under the Capital Fund Program to improve the other public housing units it manages.

The Wheeling Housing Authority faces many challenges over the next several months and years.  The current budget climate in Washington, D.C. is presenting several challenges for WHA.  As a result, all areas of the housing authority's operations are being reviewed to ensure that we are as efficient as possible and to continue to assist as many families as possible.
