Carson City, NV - September 05, 2017

Department of Business and Industry Director C.J. Manthe today announced that Steve Aichroth has been appointed administrator of the Nevada Housing Division. Aichroth replaces Manthe who was promoted to director of the Department of Business and Industry by Governor Sandoval on August 21.  

“I am humbled and honored to be named the next Nevada Housing Division administrator. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities this new role will bring, and remain committed to achieving the agency’s mission to provide Nevadans with affordable housing solutions,” said Steve Aichroth.

Mr. Aichroth previously served as the administrator of the Manufactured Housing Division until the agency was merged with the Nevada Housing Division during the 2017 Legislative Session. After the merger, Steve served as the Deputy Administrator of the newly combined agencies.  Prior to serving as the Manufactured Housing Division administrator, he was the chief of administration at the Nevada Housing Division.

Manthe. “His familiarity with the operations of both divisions will be a tremendous benefit as he oversees the functions of the combined agencies and ushers the Nevada Housing Division into a new chapter.”
