Snyder appoints Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority interim executive director

LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Michele Wildman as interim executive director of the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority, headquartered at the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA).

The land bank was created with the mission of returning blighted tax reverted properties to productive and economic viability.

“Michele has the talent and experience to lead the authority as it continues its important work to eliminate blight throughout the state, and I thank her for her willingness to serve,” Snyder said.

Wildman, of Clayton Township, has served as director of special programs for MSHDA. She has served as a federal and state policy adviser, with recent emphasis on blight elimination across the state. She has more than 12 years of experience in the affordable housing and community development industry, including more than nine years administering state and federal programs. In addition to her work in affordable housing, Wildman also has served as a program officer at two Michigan foundations. She holds a master’s degree in economics from Walsh College, a bachelor’s degree in public policy and public administration from Michigan State University and remains active in a variety of community development organizations.

Wildman replaces Kim Homan, who resigned to take a position in Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan’s administration.
