Introducing HWPI’s New Executive Director

Please join us in welcoming Kiff Hamp as the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative’s (HWPI) new Executive Director. We are excited to engage Kiff’s talents and leadership as we continue to facilitate the development of non-motorized recreational pathways across Washtenaw County and as we help connect the Border to Border Trail to Michigan’s expanding network of trails. We also extend our heartfelt gratitude to outgoing Executive Director Susan Faulkner, for her five years of dedicated and outstanding service to HWPI.

Kiff Hamp and his family

Kiff has spent the past two years as Associate Director of Grants for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, overseeing all grant and foundation activity, as well as other development work, for the organization focusing on Michigan’s most pressing issues of climate change, clean water, and voting rights. Kiff holds a Master of Public Policy from the University of Michigan Ford School of Public Policy and a JD from the University of Michigan Law School. Kiff was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and now lives in the community with his wife and son (and a daughter on the way). In his spare time he enjoys running, biking, cooking, reading, and spending time with his family.

With Our Heartfelt Gratitude

After five years with HWPI, Executive Director Susan Faulkner decided to step down from her position. She will continue to support HWPI as a member of the Board of Directors Executive Committee. Susan would like to express her tremendous appreciation to the many volunteers and donors for their gifts of time, talent, and treasure. These loyal supporters have made progress on the Border to Border Trail possible.

We are incredibly grateful to Susan for her outstanding work, growing our organization from an all-volunteer effort to a robust team of fundraising and community engagement staff. Much of HWPI’s success is thanks to Susan’s extensive leadership skills and tireless efforts. She will be greatly missed!
