February 20, 2019

The former director of the New Mexico Construction Industries Division has been selected to serve as the executive officer of the Santa Fe Area Homebuilders Association, the group announced Monday.

Katherine Crociata, who most recently served as legislative affairs director for CenturyLink, succeeds Kim Shanahan, who announced last year that he was returning to work in the building industry.

“We are delighted that Katherine has agreed to lead this association in its many activities that benefit our members and this community,” Brandon Snoy, the association’s board president, said in a statement. “Her experience and background will serve us well in solving many of the tough issues that face us today.”

In addition to working for state government and CenturyLink, Crociata served as director of governmental affairs for the Central New Mexico Homebuilders Association. She was recognized by New Mexico Business Weekly as a Woman of Influence in 2013.
