John McPeake was appointed to the position two years ago.
During three decades in the organisation he held a number of posts including head of research and director of design and property services.
It is not known why he's leaving earlier than expected, but more information may be revealed after a meeting of the Housing Executive Board on Wednesday.
The departure of Mr McPeake continues a period of turmoil at the organisation which has been rocked recently by a number of revelations over payments to contractors, and the amount of housing benefit fraud.
An NIHE spokesman confirmed: "The chief executive of the Housing Executive John McPeake is to retire later this year.
"The date for his retirement is likely to be at the end of the financial year."
