The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center has named Michelle Desiderio director of Green Building Programs. Desiderio’s green home building expertise has been fostered over her 15 years in the housing industry, including previous positions at the NAHB, Fannie Mae and the National Capital Planning Commission. “We are excited to add Michelle to our green building team,” said Michael Luzier, NAHB Research Center president. “She is a seasoned industry professional with a wealth of experience in the environmental arena. She is exactly the right person to have at the helm of our National Green Building Certification program, especially now as so many new opportunities have been created for builder, remodeler, developer and manufacturer participation with the ANSI approval earlier this year of the National Green Building Standard.” MD
