“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Harold R. McAlindon
We are a small team at Habitat Waukesha, and the time has come to say goodbye to one of our own. Mike Crowley, our CEO since 2019, has resigned from his position to move on to a new role with the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin. Mike has been a strong leader to the organization and will be missed.
The Habitat Waukesha Board of Directors has promoted Sara Clark to Director of Operations and Acting CEO effective January 16th, and we are so excited to move forward with this new chapter of Habitat’s story!
Board of Directors President Aaron Melnarik remarked, “While we are saddened Mike is leaving Habitat Waukesha, we are fortunate for his leadership during his time with the organization. Over the past two years, Mike has worked hard to strengthen our affiliate and help us fulfill our mission of providing affordable homeownership in Waukesha County. He leaves our affiliate in the strong and capable hands of Sara Clark, who we are confident will build upon that success.”
Sara has been with the organization since 2019 and brings strong business management, operations, fundraising, and leadership experience that will help Habitat Waukesha continue to serve the community.
Clark stated, "I'm honored and excited for the opportunity to help Habitat Waukesha become a household name in the community. As a homeowner myself, I understand the urgent need for affordable housing in Waukesha County. Using the strong foundation that Mike has laid down, along with our amazing team, I am passionate about leading Habitat Waukesha into a bright and promising future."
Please join us in welcoming Sara into her new role!
