Habitat for Humanity of Hall County is looking for a new executive director.
Tim Williams has left the position to become the corporate compliance and safety director with Gainesville-based America’s Home Place.
He won’t completely sever ties with Habitat, serving as a member of the board of directors and chairman of the Construction Oversight Committee, a Habitat press release states.
“It has been an honor and privilege to have spent these years with such a great organization,” Williams said.
“I have loved my time as executive director at Habitat. There is nothing like watching a well-deserving, hard-working family receive the keys to their new home. My heart is with Habitat, and that will show in my new role on the board.”
The press release says that during Williams’ tenure, the nonprofit organization that helps low-income families achieve homeownership “experienced tremendous growth, setting new records for home production … and doubling the number of families served per year.”
He also was instrumental in the development of Habitat’s Copper Glen subdivision off Baker Road and near Candler Road/Ga. 60.
“Without Tim’s dedication, leadership and extensive knowledge of the building industry, Habitat would not be where it is today,” Habitat board Chairman Thom Price said. “Our mission and fiscal soundness have never been stronger.”
Habitat has set up a search committee to find a new executive director. The hope is to find someone by early fall, according to the press release.
