Allegro Senior Living Announces Multiple Leadership Moves to Support Post-Pandemic Growth – Senior Housing News

Allegro Senior Living is adding to its leadership team, in the hope that the company can hit the ground running in a post-pandemic environment.

The St. Louis-based company on Monday announced a host of promotions and new hires intended to position it for significant future growth. The fully integrated company includes a development arm, Allegro Development Company (ADC), and a management service line, Allegro Management Company (AMC).

The promotions include:

  • Joseph Miklich to president of ADC
  • John LeFauve to senior vice president, design and construction of ADC
  • John Kratochvil and Sproule Love to vice president, development and acquisition of ADC
  • Brandi Sharp to vice president, sales of AMC
  • Christy Reynolds to vice president, administration of AMC

Additionally, AMC named two new hires: Michelle Hoeft as vice president, marketing; and Gabrielle Anderson as vice president, operations.

Allegro has been in growth mode in recent years. The company’s portfolio includes 18 communities in six states, across independent living, assisted living and memory care.

Allegro has realized substantial growth with its Avidor active adult line. The brand now includes five communities in Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska. Avidor Evanston, which opened in Evanston, Illinois last year, was the winner in the “Best Active Adult Design” category in the 2020 SHN Architecture & Design Awards.

Allegro is also pursuing growth in other types of senior living. The company is working with Trammell Crow on a proposed 175-unit independent living, assisted living and memory care community in the Chicagoland market of Arlington Heights, according to reports earlier this year.

With Covid-19 gradually coming under control, the company plans to develop new properties in multiple markets over the next 24 months, and the leadership overhaul brings new perspectives in driving the growth.

“Combining fresh ideas with our current leadership’s years of service and history in serving the senior living industry provides our company with the platform from which to spring out of the pandemic,” President and COO Doug Schiffer said in a statement.
