In 2011, Maureen Krueger became the affiliate's first executive director. Three years later, Terry Laney was hired. In 2019, Kris J. Fountain was welcomed as the next executive director. To promote recovery and move our affiliate from Covid 19, we brought Kris Vanderpool on board as executive director in 2022. Along with our board and committed volunteers, we continue to provide affordable housing solutions in partnership with the community and families in Lincoln County.

Doug joined Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County, as a part-time bookkeeper in January 2020. Prior to that he had a career working in the schools followed by many years as a finance director with a quasi-governmental agency. He had been at Habitat only two months when the COVID crisis hit our ReStores and drastically changed and continues to change the way we do things. He is a lifelong native of Catawba County and enjoys time at the beach and the mountains. During basketball season he will be near a television screen, when his favorite team, the Carolina Tarheels are playing. They are also a lifetime passion of his.
