FORT WORTH - The next president and chief executive officer of Samaritan House already will know his way around the non-profit organization.

Norbert L. White, who served as chairman of the Tarrant County Samaritan Housing, Inc. board of directors for a year before stepping down to pursue the president and CEO position, was selected by the board for the position, a news release states.

White will replace Steve Dutton, who announced earlier this year that he would retire Dec. 31.

Organization officials touted White's familiarity with the organization and leadership building consensus as board chairman, as well as senior management experience in the private sector. White has worked professionally as a client relations consultant.

Samaritan House provides permanent supportive housing to homeless and low-income individuals and families who are impacted by HIV/AIDS and other special needs.

The Samaritan House board "is excited to support Norbert's crossover to the CEO's role in the organization and believes that he will help strengthen the management team we have in place and continue our success in transforming lives," Board Chair Jim Johnson said in the release.
