Kostaras Named President/CEO of Habitat Boston

James Kostaras

Boston – The board of directors for Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston has selected architect and urban planner James Kostaras as its new president and CEO. 

Kostaras began transitioning into his duties in December of 2019 with the assistance of outgoing president and CEO Lark Palermo.

Kostaras says his goal is to help more families break the cycle of poverty by expanding homeownership opportunities in Greater Boston, and by working with local communities to support neighborhood revitalization.

He is seeking to partner with private residential developers to help them meet affordable housing obligations mandated by municipal governments by building Habitat homes either within their development site or at a site approved by the municipality.
