Greenville replaces Kendra Heimbuck, who left the position and moved from the area in early August when her husband took a fulltime job in Sheridan. The process to find Heimbuck’s replacement was an exhaustive one, finally zeroing in on a NOLS leadership candidate.

“Following a lengthy process during which time we received more than 35 applicants, our search committee and staff unanimously agreed to hire Kris. He has spent his entire career in the non-profit world and has the leadership qualities, community-orientated passion, and diverse skill sets we were looking for,” said board president Carol Linton.

Greenville comes most recently from a position as Wilderness Medicine Business Operations Manager at NOLS in Lander to assume his new duties, which will begin on or before October 1. Before working for NOLS, Greenville spent 10 years working in various positions for Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) in San Francisco, Calif. In 2017, he left the organization as Vice President to pursue his dreams of living in Wyoming. Greenville began his nonprofit career working for the YMCA as both a program and membership director.

“I came to Wyoming a little over 18 months ago to change the trajectory of my career and establish roots in this amazing region,” Greenville said. “I am excited about working for an important, community-based organization like Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area.”
