LCS Hires Bird to Lead Rental Business
DES MOINES, IA Joel Nelson, President and CEO of LCS announces that Chris Bird will be joining LCS in February to lead the company's rental division. He will be charged with leading all aspects of the rental company including operations, occupancy development, and new business growth.
"Chris brings 22 years of senior housing experience in the rental and CCRC spaces, a strong foundation in marketing and sales, and is a respected voice with industry capital partners," says Joel Nelson, President and CEO. "LCS has a very strong and talented management team. Balancing the team with Chris's industry experience outside of LCS will be a true complement to our entire organization."

Most recently, he has served on the Brookdale Senior Living leadership team as division president.
