Habitat for Humanity welcomes new board members

RUTLAND—Chris Heintz, president of Habitat for Humanity’s Rutland County affiliate, announced last week that Jenna Watson and John Braun have recently accepted the Rutland board’s invitation to join.

“We look forward to working with Jenna and John and know they will contribute a lot to their community through their work with our affiliate,” he said.

When asked why she joined the Habitat board, Watson explained that she recently moved to Vermont and the Rutland area and, as she plans to make a home and a life here, she wants to be able to do what she can for her community. Watson will serve on the community relations committee and will focus initially on helping the affiliate connect with volunteers and donors through social media. Watson works at People’s United Bank.

John Braun has over 31 years of professional experience in accounting and finance working in a diverse set of industries. Some of those industries include cable/high speed/VOIP sales and service, network security and software learning. Braun currently serves as the chief financial officer at the Vermont Achievement Center in Rutland.
