Chief Financial Officer
(775) 687-2249 | Email
As Chief Financial Officer for the Nevada Housing Division, you might guess that Michael Holliday is a numbers guy, and he is. He has more than 20 years of success in the finance/accounting world to his credit. But to the NHD team, clients and partners, he’s so much more than that. Michael has a gift for long-term planning and big picture thinking—the kind that asks, “What if?” and then answers the question, “How?”
Throughout his career in both the public and private sectors, Michael has derived a sense of satisfaction from helping companies and individuals understand their fiscal situation. When he joined NHD in 2014, he took that satisfaction to the next level—joy, a direct benefit of doing what he loves while helping people find safe and affordable homes. On a daily basis, he oversees the accounting, finance, budget and legal functions of NHD. This self-professed nerd wholeheartedly embraces technology, and respects the power that it has to reach people.
Between the people he helps through the agency and the dynamic people who make up the NHD team, it’s easy to see why Michael has declared this job the best he’s ever had.
Michael, who hails from a very small town in northern California, wisely headed east to opportunity-filled Reno to begin his career. He has lived in Reno ever since. He and his wife Kim enjoy camping in the summer and being armchair movie critics in the winter. Riding motorcycles and being a lifelong student of music round out Michael’s after-hours interests.
Michael is based in the Carson City office.
