When President & CEO Russ Den Braber announced his retirement last fall, a new Search and Transition Committee began to look for a successor to continue Russ’s legacy of excellence. The committee was successful in finding Terry Rogers who will join the CLC family as the new President and CEO.

To read the full announcement letter from Greg Terry, Chairman of the CLC Board of Directors please scroll below. Here’s a greeting from Terry Rogers:

May 23, 2016

Dear CLC Associates, Residents, Friends and Family,

As you are probably aware, Russ Den Braber, our President and CEO, announced his plans to retire last September. At that time a CEO Search and Transition Committee was formed and charged with the critical task of finding a worthy successor to continue Russ’ legacy of excellence.

It is my pleasure to share with you that we have found such a successor. Please join me in welcoming Terry Rogers to the CLC family. Terry comes to us with more than 27 years of experience as a proven leader in home healthcare, senior living and long-term care settings.

Terry has served as the President and CEO of St. Martin’s in the Pines, a senior living community located in Birmingham, Alabama for the past 16 years. In this role, Terry led the development of a comprehensive strategic plan and repositioning of St Martin’s. As a result, new service lines were developed, including a new assisted living memory support community.

Further, Terry spearheaded the visioning, planning, financing and construction of the first residential-style skilled nursing community in Alabama, based on The GREEN HOUSE Project,® known as The Cottages at St. Martin’s. He also championed strategic partnerships with the University of Alabama and other organizations in many national research projects such as senior’s use of technology, culture change, person-centered care and music and art therapy.

While Terry’s credentials are impressive, I am most grateful that he is a man of God who loves the Lord and believes that the way to show God his love is to love and serve others. He seeks to be a follower of Christ who puts his faith into action. To quote Terry, “a faith-based, mission -focused organization is the only place for me.”

Terry and his wife Beth, a board certified Emergency Medicine physician, are thrilled to be moving to Colorado. He is a devoted father to sons Josh, a student at the University of Mississippi, and Logan, a future student at the University of Colorado.

Terry will officially join CLC in early September; however, there will be a good deal of transition work taking place over the summer.

This is an exciting time of transition for CLC. In the coming months we will be celebrating all of the marvelous contributions of our current beloved leader, Russ Den Braber, and warmly welcoming a new leader in Terry Rogers as together we continue to enrich the quality and dignity of life for seniors. We give all the glory and honor to our Lord for His continued favor and blessing on Christian Living Communities.

In continued service to Him,

Gregory P. Terry
