Flower City Habitat for Humanity appoints new leader

Rochester Business Journal
December 10, 2013

Flower City Habitat for Humanity Inc. has appointed a longtime non-profit leader as its next CEO and executive director.

On Tuesday its board of directors said Matthew Flanigan has been appointed to lead the organization effective this month. Flanigan comes to the organization with more than two decades of non-profit leadership experience, spending the last eight years with the American Cancer Society, including the last four as regional vice president of the Eastern Division in Rochester.

Flanigan also spent eight years as executive director of Camp Stella Maris in Livonia and was chairman of the oversight committee that designed and raised more than $2 million to build St. Matthew Church in Livonia in 2011.

“(We) are confident that Matt’s experience working with national/local non-profits and supporting a diverse range of stakeholders will translate to progressive ways Flower City Habitat for Humanity can tackle the challenges of the poverty housing needs in Rochester as well as build on our relationship with Habitat for Humanity International,” FCHH chairman Lisa Critchley.
 
Flanigan said he is excited to join the organization and help local families achieve the American Dream and build up the neighborhoods that he grew up in.

“With the issues of growing poverty in our city and throughout the world, it is a mission needed today more than ever,” Flanigan added.
