MONCTON– Habitat for Humanity Moncton announced Wednesday that it has hired a new executive director.
Chantal Landry will be taking over for Ron Sherwood, who has led the organization for the past several years and will be retiring. Landry has over 10 years experience working for various non-profits.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to begin this new adventure and to overcome its challenges,” said Landry in a release. “We have three house rehabilitation projects this year, we still need a family for our Moncton house and I have a new ReStore manager. We are working on a plan to improve sales. This is crucial because the revenue from the ReStore covers all our administrative costs which enables us to allocate all financial donations to building or rehabilitating homes for families.”
New Moncton ReStore manager Mattew Smith has an extensive background working in the retail industry.
“We are developing a plan with our new ReStore chair to improve logistics and to acquire new donations of merchandise from individuals and companies in our community,” Smith said. “We are solution focused and we are taking steps to being successful, but our success doesn’t happen without the generous support of our community.”
