HBACV Board Selects New EO
Matt Holley, a longtime member of the Home Building Association of Central Virginia, has been hired to succeed Bob Morgan as the Executive Officer, effective in mid-January. When faced the daunting thought of having to find a suitable replacement for Bob. We could not have been happier when Matt Holley stepped up and said he would consider the position, said HBACV President Joe Helper. Morgan, Executive Officer since 2017, will retire Jan. 31. Over the past four years, Bob has worked very hard to advance the (HBACV) and has been the consummate advocate for us, said incoming HBACV President Jim Minear. When he gave his notice we were all very sad to see such a valuable asset to the association go. Our Builders and Associates will miss his great support, humor and friendship. However, he isn’t disappearing. His consulting firm, Crock Associates, Inc., is joining as an associate member. Holley, an HBACV member for nearly 8 years and a board of director member for 10, brings a wealth of experience to his new position. I have known Matt since joining the Association in 2005, said Minear. Matt was helpful in my getting acclimated ... he's been a friend since. Matt is one of those people everyone is friends with and has their respect. We all know Matt, know his character and know that he can fill the big shoes that Bob is leaving behind, added Hepler. We hope he’ll be with us for many years. A native of Charleston, WV, Holley completed a Marketing degree at Liberty University in 1995. He met his wife, Chris, while attending LU. She is a self-employed graphic designer/ writer. Married 24 years, they have two children, Samuel, a freshman at Liberty University, and Caroline, a junior at Liberty Christian Academy. While at LU Holley started a small landscape company which eventually grew to 17 employees, doing Commercial and Residential Maintenance, Hardscape and Pool Design/Install. In 2004 he purchased a license from Barrier Home Solutions to become a waterproofing contractor. Over the past 16 years Matt and his team have grown to be one of the most successful and respected waterproofing companies in our area. Holley sold the landscaping company in 2017. At this time, Matt is in the process of winding down his obligations and responsibilities at AquaBarrier. I am looking forward to bringing my networking skills and 25 years of construction career relationships in the Lynchburg community to the HBACV office, said Holley. I look forward to using this to lead and grow our association.
