Severna Park resident Mike Posko has been named the new CEO of Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake (HFHC), a nonprofit that builds affordable homes for families needing assistance in the Greater Baltimore, Anne Arundel County and Howard County area, according to a news announcement by HFHC.
Posko is a 50 year resident of Anne Arundel County and has spent his entire career in the greater Baltimore area, with 17 years at the Federal Reserve Bank of Baltimore and the past 10 years in executive leadership positions serving the real estate construction industry with Struever Brothers, Eccles and Rouse, and Cross Street Partners, according to the announcement.
“I am incredibly excited about working for Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake and helping the organization to continue to grow and serve more families. I am passionate about the affiliate’s history of helping deserving families earn an interest-free mortgage to begin a new life for now and future generations to come," Posko said in the announcement.
"The opportunity to work with so many devoted people, including board members, employees, partner families, business partners, youth and faith partners, advocates and the many other volunteers who give so generously of their time and financial support is exhilarating. I look forward to meeting our partners—new and old—as we continue this journey together."
Posko has 12 years of experience working with nonprofits in various capacities. He will begin in his new role on Feb. 13, according to the announcement. In the meantime, he will spend time getting to know the board and staff and building a foundation for collaborative teamwork with the organization.
HFHC is developing plans to introduce Posko to the community through a series of speaking opportunities, networking events, open houses, and more. If your organization is interested in an appearance by an HFHC representative, contact Sandra Erbe, 443.848.3004 firstname.lastname@example.org.
