Habitat for Humanity GB Appoints New CEO

A new CEO appointed at Habitat for Humanity Great Britain

The Chair and Board of Habitat for Humanity Great Britain is announcing that Meryl Davies, who has been CEO at Habitat for Humanity GB since November 2015, has resigned from the organisation as of 31 March 2018.

The Board would like to thank Meryl for her leadership as CEO during the past two and a half years, leaving the charity in a stronger position. During her time, the organisation has seen a growth of income and a doubling of our volunteer trips. She has contributed to the professionalisation of the team and its processes and will be missed.
