Board of Directors

David W. Butterfield, President

In 2011 Butterfield was looking for an opportunity to become more involved in the shore community.  That search lead him to a Coastal Habitat construction site.  "Not only does Coastal Habitat for Humanity offer me a volunteer opportunity using my background in business and construction, the organization is extremely well run and is making a profound impact in the lives of individuals and in our broader community," he said.  Shortly thereafter, Butterfield was invited to join Coastal Habitat's executive team to assist in the organization's ongoing mission in Southern Monmouth County.  In 2012, he joined the Board of Directors as vice president and in 2014 he was elected president. 

Butterfield is senior vice president of Underwriting with AIG Benefit Solutions, the group benefits unit of American International Group, Inc. (AIG). He earned a master of business administration degree from Monmouth University, holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Vermont and has completed an Executive Education curriculum at the Wharton School in Strategic Thinking and Management for Competitive Advantage.  He resides in Ocean Township with his wife and two children.

Quarterman joined the Coastal Habitat board in 2012 to "continue to improve the lives of those who have worked hard but could use a little help.  The American Dream should be accessible for all people and Coastal Habitat helps make that dream a reality for many families."  For the past three decades, Quarterman has worked in the medical field, helping people – from nursing as a LPN to rehabilitation to teaching life skills.  Presently, she works at Enable Inc. as a residential manager, assisting those whose lives began as "challenged."

Over the past 15 years, Quarterman has gone from caring for infants at the Living Word Child Care Center to serving as the program coordinator of the academy, day care and summer camp programs to holding the position of financial officer.  She is also the ministerial head at the Sunday school department of her church.

Furthering his dedication to the Jersey Shore community, he serves on the board of directors of the Joan Dancy & Pals and StayTough.FightHARD foundations which both address quality of life issues for individuals and families stricken with ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
