Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity announced that William Eubanks III has been appointed as its new chief executive officer and will assume his new role on Nov. 14.
He succeeds Dave Crawford, who announced his retirement in May.
“The opportunity to be part of the leading organization providing affordable housing and revitalizing neighborhoods is the honor of a lifetime,” Eubanks said in a statement. “Dallas Habitat has a solid foundation and a steadfast commitment to Dallas families. I am looking forward to continuing the great work of the Habitat team, board, and volunteers who are carrying out our mission each and every day.”
Eubanks will oversee Habitat’s employees and volunteers, construction and mortgage operations, and ReStore locations, the nonprofit said.
“After a broad and extensive search, we are thrilled to have found an executive leader who has the operational and financial expertise that will ensure Dallas Habitat’s long-term success,” Joey Hall, Dallas Habitat board chair and EVP at Pioneer Natural Resources, said in a statement. “Bill is passionate about ensuring Habitat families have a voice. He is the right leader to take us into the future, and advocate for and uplift our clients, employees, volunteers, and board. I also want to thank Dave Crawford for his leadership and accomplishments which have laid a strong foundation for Bill and the organization moving forward.”
Eubanks brings more than 40 years of experience in real estate operations, asset management and business operations to his role at Habitat for Humanity. Most recently, was president of Eubanks Holdings.
Dallas Habitat aims to drive positive impact through affordable homeownership opportunities, financial education, advocacy, and neighborhood empowerment programs. The nonprofit brings together public and private funding, community leadership and vision, and thousands of volunteers to break the cycle of poverty and transform communities. The organization has served more than 2,000 low-income families since 1986, resulting in an investment of approximately $185 million in more than 25 Dallas area neighborhoods.
