Gioiello is managing director at First Republic Investment Management in Santa Barbara. Before joining First Republic, he worked at Manchester Capital Management and Northern Trust Bank of California. He received his B.S. at California State University, Long Beach, an M.B.A. from USC and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. He also serves on the boards of Catholic Charities of Santa Barbara, the Pearl Chase Society, and Friends of the Montecito Library. Previously, he also served as a board member of the Goleta Valley Housing Committee and Domestic Violence Solutions.

“I intend to concentrate my charitable activities around organizations aiding the working poor,” Gioiello said. “This is where I find the greatest fulfillment. I would like to work with the young people living at Peoples’ properties and to get them interested in regularly saving a portion of their income.”

McCormick is San Luis Obispo County’s deputy clerk-recorder. She participated in Peoples’ self-help home-building program and is now a homeowner in Templeton. She has also volunteered for the Army Community Services and Army Emergency Relief programs. She attended Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria and New Mexico State University in Las Cruces.

“My goal is to advocate for affordable housing, which is a vital part of helping low-income households, senior citizens and the children in Peoples’ youth programs,” she said.

Founded in 1970, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing is an award-winning nonprofit organization that develops affordable housing and community facilities for low-income households and homeownership opportunities for working families and special needs populations, such as seniors, the disabled and the formerly homeless. With more than 1,200 homes completed and more than 1,500 rental units developed and now managed by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, PSHH is the largest affordable housing developer on the Central Coast. It has offices in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
