Tim Carpenter has been named the new Director of Housing Operations for ABAC. Carpenter is from Ashley, N.C and received his bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering technology from Western Carolina University.
The new position will be a change of pace for Carpenter, who’s used to working in the manufacturing industry.
“It’s night and day,” he said, referring to the differences in manufacturing and working at a manufacturing plant.
Though Carpenter is new to the world of housing operations, he is no stranger to administrating, as for the past two years he has worked as the General Manager if Moultrie Manufacturing Company. Even with the massive difference in what he is managing, he says actively managing is fairly similar.
At the moment, Carpenter doesn’t know if he has a specific vision for ABAC housing, but would just like to provide the best housing possible.
When asked what he’d like to say to ABAC students, Carpenter responded, “I’d hope they’d be open to coming to me with any problems they have with the housing facilities."
