Lourdes Senior Community
Welcome Richard Acho, Chief Financial Officer
Lourdes Senior Community announced today that its Board of Directors has named current Chief Financial Officer, Richard Acho, as president and chief executive officer, effective October 10, 2022.
The announcement follows an extensive nationwide search conducted by Oak Brook, Illinois-based executive search firm WittKieffer.
Rich succeeds Sister Maureen Comer, OP, who earlier this year announced her plans to retire after an exceptional career serving the needs of seniors and vulnerable persons.
"On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, I am very pleased that Rich will lead Lourdes Senior Community at this important time for the organization as we continue to evolve the model of serving older adults," said Brian Condit, Lourdes Board Chair. "Rich has made a significant impact on Lourdes since joining as the Chief Financial Officer in 2017. He is a well-rounded leader that brings a passion for serving the residents and their families in a faith-filled environment that respects the dignity of each individual. The Board and I look forward to working with Rich and the rest of the management team to chart Lourdes’ future for the next half-century."
“I also want to express my heartfelt gratitude for the decades of dedicated service that Sr Maureen Comer provided to Lourdes and the many other organizations she served throughout her exceptional career,” said Brian Condit. “The legacy she has left Lourdes is a precious gift that will be cherished for years to come. We are deeply indebted to her selfless example of living for others.”
"I am honored to lead Lourdes Senior Community, an organization that for more than 57 years has focused on providing a loving and safe environment for older adults," said Rich Acho. "Lourdes is a special place that distinguishes itself through the compassion and service of our team. I am thrilled to help lead the organization in the next chapter of serving its mission."
