NMHC’s Bibby Agrees to Stay at the Helm Until 2023

Doug Bibby, the longtime president of the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), will now retire at NMHC’s Annual Meeting in January of 2023. The announcement comes seven months after Bibby put off his retirement—originally slated for January of this year—until 2022.

“More than a year after the onset of the pandemic, it now seems clear that the apartment sector has weathered the challenges and now stands at a precipice of opportunity,” said David Schwartz, chair of NMHC. “However, uncharted waters remain ahead of us as the economic recovery continues. While no one deserves to enjoy his retirement more than Doug, he has generously and graciously agreed to remain at the helm as we navigate a return to normalcy, growth and ongoing success.”

Bibby has helmed NMHC for more than 20 years. Most recently, he has guided the organization and its members through unparalleled challenges caused by the pandemic and resulting financial distress. Simultaneously, he has doubled down on NMHC’s longtime commitment to expanding diversity, equity and inclusion in the multifamily industry.
