James K. Rieker

James (Jim) K. Rieker was the original MHEG employee. Appointed to the Nebraska Affordable Housing Commission to lay the groundwork in creating a state equity fund, Jim worked with several other key players to establish the Equity Fund of Nebraska (now known as MHEG). Under Jim’s leadership and dedication MHEG surpassed any expectations made in 1992. He took MHEG and developed it into the successful company that it is today. During his 20 years at MHEG, he changed the lives of thousands while fulfilling his passion for affordable housing and inspired staff to remember the purpose behind the company and our mission.
