RISMEDIA, May 12, 2009-Ron Sims has been sworn in as the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As the second most senior official at HUD, Sims will be charged with managing the department’s day-to-day operations, a nearly $39 billion annual operating budget, and the agency’s 8,500 employees.

“President Obama, Secretary Donovan, and Congress have all voiced a clear expectation that HUD can and must now step up to unprecedented levels of leadership in America’s national recovery,” said Sims. “I am ready to help Secretary Donovan to bring transformational change to HUD. This organization must work – and it must serve not simply as a pass-fail bureaucracy. It must be a creative engine of ideas, actions and tools – in which employees, partners and our customers are empowered to implement a shared vision of the future.”

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said, “The drive and vision Ron brings is critical to our efforts to not only transform the Agency but to help the nation’s communities recover and to better position them for the future. Our leadership team is now coming together and we can now focus on systemic reform, policy innovation, and harnessing private sector capital and talent as well as new kinds of partnership and collaboration to respond to the nation’s housing crisis.”
