January 24, 2023 – The Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan Board of Directors announces that Gary Gurtler is appointed as Interim Chief Executive Officer effective March 1, 2023. Mr. Gurtler has worked for Habitat in a variety of roles, most recently as Director, Prince Albert Region and Provincial ReStores and also as Interim Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Prince Albert.
“Gary is absolutely committed to Habitat’s mission, is deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of Habitat’s operations, and is well respected by his peers and partners”, stated Bruce Anderson, Chair of the Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan Board of Directors. Mr. Gurtler was appointed after the resignation of Denis Perrault as Chief Executive Officer which is effective February 28, 2023.
“The merger of the three affiliates into one provincial affiliate had many challenges but is largely completed. Denis Perrault provided outstanding leadership and critical decision-making during the intensive time of the merger and has set a path for Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan to grow and provide more families with affordable housing. We are grateful for Denis’s contributions, but I know he is looking forward to some downtime and to pursue other interests”, offered Anderson.
The Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan Human Resources Committee, with the assistance of Affective Consulting, is currently conducting a search for a permanent Chief Executive Officer.
