Peltz comes to HabiJax with a retail background, having worked in management at Pantry Pride and in sales and management for Lance, Inc. He will manage day-to-day operations at the store including, inventory, pricing, store layout and display and customer experience enhancement.

Octavious Carr, an experienced mortgage service industry professional, joined HabiJax as its portfolio support manager. In this role, Carr will focus on reporting, client relations and loss mitigation, working closely with mortgage servicers, the HabiJax team and homeowners to manage assets of the loan portfolio.
