Dallas Business Journal Recognizes DHA President and CEO Troy Broussard as a 2022 “Most Admired CEO”

Broussard Recognized Among a Group of 18 CEOs Who Deliver Outstanding Performance and Contribute to the North Texas Community

DALLAS, TX, JUNE 23, 2022 — The Dallas Business Journal has named president and chief executive officer Troy Broussard of DHA, Housing Solutions for North Texas as a 2022 “Most Admired CEO” recipient. This award is given to CEOs across North Texas who are great stewards of their companies, specifically cultivating an inclusive, collaborative culture. This includes influential leaders that inspire those around them, manage their companies with integrity, and exemplify excellence, while contributing to the North Texas community.

 Troy was selected as one of 18 notable North Texas leaders. This marks the third class of Dallas Business Journal’s Most Admired CEO Award honorees, following a two-year absence. The winners were honored at an event on June 16 and will be featured in a special publication in print and online in the Dallas Business Journal on June 23.

 “I appreciate this recognition and accept it on behalf of our team. DHA’s hard working, passionate, and dedicated staff are who make the agency great and I am honored to serve as their team captain. Managing the administration of affordable housing benefits can be challenging work, but we are inspired by our mission to provide quality affordable housing and supportive services in the communities we serve” says Broussard. “Affordable housing is an important part of the solution to reduce poverty in our community and I am proud to work at a mission driven organization that serves more than 55,700 North Texans each day.” 

Troy started his career in affordable housing at DHA in 1993 in the Intake Department and has served the North Texas community through DHA ever since. He is incredibly passionate about the agency’s work to provide affordable housing solutions and cultivate economic advancement for its clients. His passion for assisting people to achieve self-sufficiency makes him a valuable asset to DHA.

Mr. Broussard has navigated over ten roles within the organization during his 29-year tenure. As president and CEO, he directs and supervises staff as a vital team leader while developing, mentoring, and leading top-performing teams.

DHA is the tenth largest public housing authority in the nation. The agency provides affordable housing opportunities for more than 55,700 people through public housing developments and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) programs across seven counties in North Texas: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Rockwall, and Tarrant.

In addition to the Housing Choice Voucher program, DHA owns and operates thousands of rental housing units across 40 developments including public housing units and mixed-income communities.

 When the COVID pandemic hit, DHA, like all other organizations, had to quickly pivot its operations to meet the challenges of managing its programs virtually. Not only was DHA able to revamp its operations to meet the needs of public housing residents, Housing Choice Voucher families, landlords and employees, but it also partnered with the City of Dallas to disburse more than $22 million in emergency rent relief funds to more than 4,000 families in Dallas, preventing evictions and supporting the local economy.

 “We believe that communities are stronger when everyone has a chance to thrive,” Broussard continues. “Tackling the affordable housing shortage in North Texas is a complex task, as there is a clear need for more affordability in Dallas and across the entire North Texas region. DHA looks forward to continuing to create mixed-income developments and expanding private market partnerships for North Texans.”
