Our Team

Our people make the difference

When we say we’re a people-first company, we’re not just talking about our dedication to the clients and communities we serve; we’re talking about our own people, too. At Habitat, everyone has a voice. Each employee brings a unique perspective and incredible talent to the team, and we take advantage of that by working across departments – instead of within them – to deliver outstanding results.
