SARASOTA, FL – Habitat for Humanity Sarasota has recently hired Danny Bilyeu to assume the role of construction administrator. In his role, Bilyeu will oversee their planning, development and construction of 20+ homes per year. His primary responsibility is to support the development and activities of the newly announced Hammock Place, a 40-home neighborhood in Sarasota that will provide 40 local families with a stable place to live.
Most recently, Bilyeu was the field representative for Congressman Vern Buchanan in Sarasota County, where he has lived since 1979.
