American Family Housing in Midway City named Milo Peinemann chief executive, replacing Donna Gallup, who left the post in October after three years at the helm of the non-profit.
Peinemann has held senior posts in veterans-focused groups, managed assets for an L.A. area housing nonprofit, and been a vice president at Union Bank, his LinkedIn profile said.
He has a bachelor’s from University of California-Berkeley and a Master of Planning from USC.
