EAH Housing has promoted Laura Hall to president and CEO, the San Rafael-based nonprofit provider of affordable dwellings announced Tuesday.

Chief operating officer of the 51-year-old organization since 2008, Hall fills the role held by Mary Murtagh since 1986. Effective June 1, Murtagh shifted her work with the organization to its board of directors, where she will continue focusing on affordable-housing advocacy and development.

“We are at a watershed moment in California and Hawaii’s history as people in both states are facing dramatic increases in housing costs, homelessness and commuting time,” Hall said in the announcement. “We are determined to work with elected officials, local governments, communities and service organizations to provide people with quality rental apartment homes and the opportunity to better their lives.”
