Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County has hired Chris Simpson as resource development director, and has also promoted Tyla Reyes as manager of its Ferndale retail store.
Simpson will coordinate fundraising and acquisitions for the nonprofit homebuilding organization.
She began volunteering with Habitat for Humanity four years ago, and was previously employed as an inside sales consultant at Premier Agenda. Simpson has lived in Whatcom County for 20 years.
Reyes takes over the retail management position from Jaime Arnett, who left the job in the beginning of August to take a similar position at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Redmond, Ore.
Reyes has worked at the Habitat Store in Ferndale for the past year as a sales associate and a pickup and delivery coordinator.
