He has operated multiple communities as an Executive Director and supported dining programs throughout the country. As a Regional Dining Director, he was helping other organizations to diversify their growth. While building strong relationships with well-recognized industry partners he gained extensive procurement knowledge and experience enabling him to use his hybrid background in his role as our National Director of Dining and Purchasing. Currently, he supports the dining teams in our communities by focusing on a high-quality experience that recognizes the individual needs of each of our residents while striving to exceed resident expectations.
He also supports our purchasing efforts leading the procurement department to build strategic partnerships with vendors that provide goods and services tailored to the vast needs of our residents and team members. Senior hospitality is at his core. While visiting communities you will often times see him engage with residents and families one minute before sharing his culinary knowledge with the dining teams the next. As he often says “it’s not what you eat but who you eat with that matters.”
