COHFH Promotes Reagan Carter, CPA, CGMA, to CFO, and Welcomes Controller Hollie Cole

Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity has promoted Reagan Carter to Chief Financial Officer. She has served as Habitat’s controller since February of 2018. Carter is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with extensive experience in accounting and financial management.

In her new role, Carter will manage staff, financial statements, budgets and audits, ensuring Habitat’s financial health and stability. She holds the Chartered Global Management Accountant designation, serves on the board for the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Oklahoma Society of CPAs and her prior experience includes working with manufacturing companies, Hertz and public accounting firms.

Originally from Meeker, Oklahoma, Carter said her love of numbers and technology started when she was just 16 and attended one of her father’s Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative (CVEC) board meetings.

“My Dad was CVEC board president,” Carter said. “During the meeting I was introduced to an accounting firm partner named Carlos Johnson. He presented an audit report and I became interested in accounting as a career.

“Mr. Johnson followed up with me later and shared accounting-related materials and I followed up by taking an accounting course in high school. I was hooked! After earning my bachelor’s degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, my first job was as a staff accountant with Arthur Andersen.”

After working in accounting for various industries, it was Carter’s experience with the Department of Housing and Urban Development working on reverse mortgages that heightened her interest in Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity. She thanks Johnson today for sparking her interest in her chosen career field.

“Carlos, you’re responsible for me becoming a CPA,” she said.

Carter is married and has two grown children.

COHFH has also hired a new controller, Hollie Cole, to replace Carter. Cole has more than 20 years of accounting experience in the oil and gas industry and working for CPA firms. Her duties include COHFH’s financials, including managing mortgage closings, bank reconciliations and assisting with compliance, as well as managing other financial audits.

Originally from north of Seminole, Oklahoma, Cole earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Mid-America Christian University (MACU) and she recently graduated with a master’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from MACU. She is married and has a daughter who recently graduated from high school.

“I’m excited to work in another industry,” Cole said. “I’ve been welcomed with open arms at Habitat and I’m honestly grateful to be here.”

COHFH is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian-housing ministry that has built 1,098 homes for limited-income individuals and families in the Central Oklahoma area since 1990. COHFH believes everyone deserves a decent place to live and our mission is to demonstrate God’s love by bringing people together to build homes, grow communities and nurture hope.
