About OCCH

OCCH Welcomes Peg Moertl

Hal Keller, President

Dear OCCH Partners,

Over the years as a banker, city government official, community leader and advocate, I was pleased to work with Hal Keller and the OCCH team, to witness their growth and success and to admire from afar the critical role they play in helping drive investment to create and preserve affordable housing across Ohio and Kentucky. I also had the opportunity to get to know Joe Hagan, the founder and first president of OCCH, and others currently at OCCH when I was at Bank One back in the 1990’s. I learned first-hand of the smart, passionate professionals who have been part of Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing. To join this amazing team as the leader following Joe and Hal is the honor of a lifetime.

I look forward to continuing OCCH’s tradition of impeccable and innovative service connecting our investors and development partners to better meet the needs of our neighbors for quality housing in vital communities with necessary, life-enriching support. The demand has never been greater, the challenges more difficult and the opportunities for what OCCH provides more important. I look forward to working with all of you to build on this foundation and to create a brighter, dynamic future for our communities.

Peg Moertl
