About Tony T. Brown, President & CEO

Tony T. BrownTony Brown believes that every person in every community deserves to live in a safe, secure, vibrant neighborhood that generates opportunities to lead a better life. He knows that community-based businesses, learning centers, and recreation venues are vital to making that happen. That's why he is committed to building a better tomorrow today.

Recognized both nationally and locally for his contributions in community and economic development, Tony brings his clients over 30 years of financing experience in banking and government lending programs involving a variety of tax credits initiatives and grants. He excels in finding finance solutions for community development projects across the United States. Tony gained a national reputation for excellence in the field of community development when appointed as Director of the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund), U.S. Department of Treasury. Tony led the implementation of the federal New Markets Tax Credit (NMTCs) program and directed its initial allocation of $6 billion in tax credit authority. His experience in leading urban community development corporations enables Tony to be keenly aware of the challenges in local community development.

His career highlights include the creation and expenditure of a $100 million private loan fund that sparked nearly $400 million of investment in redevelopment projects in Cincinnati's urban core over a five-year period. The significant impact of these projects attracted visits and praise from U.S. Congressional leaders, a Federal Reserve Board Governor and then HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. As a former Bank of America banker, Tony directed one of the largest community development programs to outstanding “CRA” ratings through billion dollar loan production in low income communities.

From the United States Department of the Treasury, Cincinnati Uptown Consortium and now in Palm Beach County, Florida, Tony's insight, integrity and tenacity have enabled him to meet every expectation, overcome every challenge and achieve every goal set. Tony started TBCG to continue his life's work of enhancing the quality of life for all people through innovative financial solutions for communities, businesses, governments and lenders throughout the country.
