Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett has announced John Hall will be leaving the position of executive director of the Indianapolis Housing Agency. The mayor’s office says since beginning the role in March 2019, Hall implemented a recovery action plan to address performance and federal compliance.

“I want to thank John for his leadership of IHA during an especially critical time period. Despite the challenges and disruptions of the pandemic, John continued to guide one of our city’s most important public agencies,” said Mayor Hogsett.

Hall came to Indianapolis after serving as department director with the city of Wichita, Kansas’ Housing and Community Services Department. He previously worked with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as field office director for the District of Columbia Field Office.

“I’m grateful to the Mayor, the Agency, and the City of Indianapolis for the opportunity to serve over the past three years,” said Hall.

Mayor Hogsett has named Marcia Lewis IHA interim executive director. She most recently served as the agency’s chief deputy executive director. Lewis previously held the role of chief executive officer of the Memphis Housing Authority in Memphis, Tennessee.
