After an exhaustive national search, the board of directors is pleased to announce that Phil DeBaun, current CEO of the Kendal-Crosslands retirement community and a long-time advocate for retirement communities is coming on board as the next CEO of Foulkeways-Gwynedd.
DeBaun, who served for 13 years as CEO of the Kendal-Crosslands community, takes the helm at Foulkeways-Gwynedd on June 1 with the retirement of Mike Peasley whose Successful five-year tenure included the steady expansion of facilities and services at Foulkeways . DeBaun, who has a background in banking, specializing in loans to retirement communities, is uniquely qualified to continue the orderly expansion of Foulkeways-Gwynedd’s resident-driven services.
As a former board chairman of LeadingAge, he is an experienced and respected advocate for senior services. He holds an economics degree from Swarthmore College and an MBA from Drexel University’s Lebow College of Business.
The search drew qualified candidates from across the nation. But, as with all we do at Foulkeways, we began at home by soliciting the input of our residents. Following a series of meetings, residents and senior staff helped formulate the questions used to interview the list of candidates.
Their input, explained Foulkeways-Gwynedd’s Board Chairman Phil Henderson, was “extremely helpful in defining the issues of most concern and importance. Those questions provided both structure and content for our interviews.
