Eskaton promotes new president with focus on growth
Eskaton, a Sacramento, California-based senior living provider announced it recently promoted Sheri Peifer to the role of president as part of a board-led chief executive officer succession plan, according to a news release provided by the company.
Peifer will take over for outgoing CEO Todd Murch, and she will oversee operations and strategic growth to meet increasing senior living demand.
“Sheri brings a strong set of skills in strategic planning and innovation, operational excellence and partnership development as Eskaton continues to expand and meet the needs of older adults across the region,” Murch said in the news release.
Peifer joined the company in 2005 and formerly served as Eskaton’s chief strategy officer, leading company efforts in various areas from development to joint ventures and partnerships, and more. She helped lead Eskaton’s expansions of services across California’s Bay area and Central Valley through affiliations with nonprofit senior living providers.
She also led the effort expanding the company’s home and community-based services across the region.
As president, Peifer will focus on “integrating and strengthening Eskaton’s communities and services, including investing in support for Eskaton’s dedicated workforce,” the release notes.
With the aging population only to grow in the coming years, Eskaton will lead the company’s growth efforts to meet that demand. Her vision includes positioning Eskaton as a single-point solution for older adults seeking senior living.
“Our future imperative will focus on understanding and delivering new customer experiences, services and ways to age well within a community. We anticipate partners will continue to be an ever-important part of our growth as we prioritize the well-being of older Californians,” she said in the news release.
She also serves as vice chair of the LeadingAge California board of directors and chairs its planning committee.
