Genesee County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) announced that Thomas Hutchinson will succeed Margaret Kato as its executive director when Kato retires in February after 15 years at the helm. Under Kato’s leadership, GCHFH grew into one of the most respected Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States. Hutchinson grew up in the Flint area before going to college. He earned his undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University and holds a master’s degree in electronic intermedia from the University of Florida. He worked on a number of high-profile lighting and exhibition design projects in New York City before moving back to Flint. He joined GCHFH on the construction staff in 2013 and started the Home Repair Program in 2015. To date, the GCHFH Home Repair Program has helped 796 Genesee County residents, including 382 families.
