Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen leads the administration’s efforts to invest in emerging industries across the five boroughs, build a new generation of affordable housing, and help New Yorkers secure good-paying jobs that can support a family.
Glen served as the Assistant Commissioner for Housing Finance at the NYC Department of Housing, Preservation and Development from 1998 to 2002, where she was responsible for financing the rehabilitation and construction of thousands of units of market, moderate and low-income units as well as overseeing the City’s supportive housing, tax credit and tax incentive programs.
Most recently, Glen served as the Head of the Urban Investment Group (UIG) at Goldman Sachs, which provides capital to underserved urban communities. Under her leadership, UIG spurred more than $5 billion of development across dozens of residential, mixed-use and commercial projects, as well as financed job creation and neighborhood revitalization strategies like the $40mm New York Healthy Food and Healthy Communities Fund.
Glen is a graduate of Amherst College and Columbia Law School.
