Herbert Named Acting Managing Director at JCHS

June 9, 2014


The Joint Center of Housing Studies (JCHS) has announced that Research Director Chris Herbert will assume the duties of acting managing director following the appointment of former Managing Director Eric Belsky as director of the Division of Consumer and Community Affairs at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington.

Herbert has extensive experience conducting research related to housing policy, housing markets, housing finance and urban development. Having previously worked as a research analyst at the Joint Center in the 1990s, Herbert rejoined the center in 2010 from Abt Associates, where he was a senior associate in the Housing and Community Development practice. Herbert is on the Center for Responsible Lending Research Advisory Council and the Board of Directors of the Homeownership Preservation Foundation. He holds a PhD in public policy from Harvard University and a BA from Dartmouth College.

Until his appointment last week to the Federal Reserve Board, Belsky had served as managing director of the Joint Center for Housing Studies and lecturer in urban planning and design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

The Joint Center is a collaborative venture of the Graduate School of Design and Harvard Kennedy School. The Center conducts research on the nation’s most critical housing and urban issues
