Novogradac Welcomes Community Development Expert

Bob Ibanez, longtime Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program manager, will join the Novogradac group of companies, effective April 16.

Ibanez will be a senior manager in Novogradac’s public policy group, initially in Washington, D.C., prior to establishing an office in Jacksonville later this year. Bob will work with NMTC clients and as part of the NMTC Working Group. He will also focus on expanding Novogradac’s work with CDFIs around the country.

“We are thrilled to have Bob join our team,” said Michael J. Novogradac, CPA, managing partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s San Francisco office. “He has been an asset to the community development world during his tenure at the CDFI Fund, and before, and his experience and depth of understanding of the NMTC program and community development in general will benefit our clients and the communities they serve. With the next NMTC application round opening soon, this is an exciting time to have Bob join our team.”

Ibanez spent the past 13 years at the CDFI Fund, the past six as program manager of the New Markets Tax Credit and Bank Enterprise Award programs. Before that, Ibanez had a private consulting practice. He also has worked in the financial and community development industries. Ibanez has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a master’s degree from The American College of Financial Services.

Ibanez will be among those gathering at the Novogradac 2018 New Markets Tax Credit Spring Conference, June 7-8 in Washington, D.C.
