Christian Living Communities is proud to announce the selection of our next President & CEO. Jill Vitale-Aussem will join the organization on November 16th replacing Terry Rogers, who announced his departure in February.
Jill Vitale-Aussem has more than 20 years of leadership experience in senior living and services, having served the last two years as President and CEO of The Eden Alternative, an international not-for-profit dedicated to creating quality of life for older adults and their care partners through professional training and consulting. Before her role at The Eden Alternative, Vitale-Aussem served CLC from 2009-2018 as both as an Executive Director at Clermont Park located in Denver and Vice-President of Operations for Cappella Living Solutions, the consulting and management division of CLC. Jill is also an acclaimed author of Disrupting the Status Quo of Senior Living: A Mindshift.
Board Chair Greg Terry, who led the President and CEO Search and Transition Committee says of the selection, “We feel blessed to find someone with Jill’s experience, her level of dedication to improving the future of senior living, and who is committed to carrying out our Christian-based mission and values. In many respects, this is a homecoming for Jill, and we’re welcoming her with open arms.”
Vitale-Aussem is excited to return to an organization she loves, “I’m thrilled to be returning to Christian Living Communities. This organization is exceptional in its commitment to its mission and a vision of creating communities where aging is honored and celebrated. While our field is in a time of unprecedented challenge, there are incredible opportunities for Christian Living Communities to emerge as an even stronger organization – one that leads the way to a new future.”
"I made some good friends after moving to Clermont Park. My family loves it. They have also met a lot of good people here."
"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
