Bailey House is proud to announce that Daniel W. Tietz has been appointed as the organization’s new CEO. Tietz comes to Bailey House from New York City’s Human Resources Administration (HRA), where he has served as Chief Special Services Officer since May of 2014. A registered nurse and lawyer, Tietz is a respected leader with a strong record of accomplishment over his more than 30 year career in the nonprofit sector.

Tietz will join Bailey House in late October. He succeeds longtime CEO Gina Quattrochi, who passed away in December of 2016 following a valiant battle with cancer. His appointment is the culmination of a national search led by the Bailey House Board of Directors in consultation with executive search firm McCormack+Kristel.

“Dan’s entrepreneurial spirit, unique combination of advocacy and nonprofit experience, and relentless approach to improving the lives of some of New York City’s most vulnerable citizens make him the perfect fit to lead Bailey House,” said Matt Farber, Chair of the Bailey House Board of Directors. “This is a dynamic time for Bailey House, and we have found in Dan a tenacious and innovative leader who can help us build on our nearly 35 year track record of helping to transform the lives of New Yorkers affected by chronic illnesses.”

“Bailey House has been a leader in the housing sector and in helping people affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses for decades,” said Tietz. “I look forward to joining the talented team and leveraging my own history and experience to continue to build on Bailey House’s important, valuable, and life-changing work.”

As the Chief Special Services Officer of HRA, Tietz oversaw programs that focus on the most vulnerable New Yorkers, including the HIV/AIDS Services Administration (HASA), Customized Assistance Services, Adult Protective Services, Emergency and Intervention Services (including emergency food assistance and domestic violence shelters and services), the Home Care Services Program, Supportive/Affordable Housing and Services, and Emergency Management. With a $10 billion budget and 14,700 employees, HRA assists 3.5 million New Yorkers each year with an extensive range of programs, which also include food and income support, such as cash assistance, rental assistance, SNAP (food stamps), Medicaid and child support.

Immediately prior to HRA, Tietz served as the executive director of ACRIA, a national HIV research, education and advocacy organization based in New York City. During his tenure at ACRIA, Tietz more than doubled the organization’s budget and vastly expanded its research activities, as well as its training, capacity building, and evaluation consulting services. Tietz previously served as the Deputy Executive Director for Operations at the Coalition for the Homeless and as the Deputy Executive Director for Day Treatment and Residential Services at Housing Works, both in New York City, among other positions. Earlier in his career, he worked for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health in a senior staff position for the Deputy Commissioner. Tietz has also long-advocated on behalf of LGBTQI rights and social justice concerns.
