Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority announced the departure of Anthony Scott as Chief Executive Officer of RRHA. Scott will soon take on a new position as deputy executive director for Baltimore Housing. His last day at RRHA will be April 15.
Maxine Cholmondeley, RRHA’s general counsel, will serve as interim CEO of RRHA and will work together with the Board of Commissioners and RRHA senior management to assure the same levels of high quality service during the transition period. Cholmondeley has served as general counsel to RRHA since 2008, providing legal support and direction to all of the agency’s departments.
Scott joined RRHA in November 2005 as deputy executive director of community revitalization. Since then, the agency has made significant accomplishments in and contributions to the city of Richmond and the lives of RRHA community members.

He spearheaded major initiatives such as the Master Planning and implementation of the Dove Street redevelopment project as well as the Master Planning for North Jackson Ward – two redevelopment initiatives that are slated to increase the social and economic fabric of the city of Richmond through job creation and innovative business ventures. He also worked closely with the Mayor’s Office to redevelop downtown Richmond through the transformation of the Miller and Rhoads building into the Hilton Garden Inn and the Thalhimer building into CenterStage.
