Firm: Tiber Hudson LLC
Allison King parlayed a career in real estate development into a career as an affordable housing bond attorney, after working on bond-financed housing projects in the Southeast.
She leads Tiber Hudson’s Charleston, South Carolina, office most often serving as underwriter’s counsel and has participated in the issuance of about $4.5 billion of bonds, including those involving the Federal Housing Administration, Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and private placements.
Her duties also include business development, team leadership and employee training. Allison says she focuses on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and service to the community.
“Collaboration is key,” she said. “Knowledge is something that you can give freely without having less.”
Kent Neumann, a founding member of Tiber Hudson, said Allison joined him to start the firm in 2017.
“Allison’s leadership and outstanding work ethic has been integral in positioning our firm as a well-respected leader in the affordable housing industry,” he said. “Her potential is limitless.”
Outside of work, Allison serves on Charleston’s Short-Term Rental Housing Task Force and she volunteers for a nonprofit that develops affordable homes for first-time homebuyers. She also mentors young equestrians as a volunteer at the Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding center.
She is a frequent speaker for the American Bar Association and professional associations.
“During these last several months, as we have all sheltered in our homes, the need for a safe, healthy, stable place to live has never felt more important,” Allison said. “An affordable home is fundamental to the vitality of families and communities. Without it, we cannot thrive.”
Allison enjoys being outdoors and cycling. This fall she plans to go bikepacking across South Carolina.
