In July, Riderwood welcomed Louis Varella to its management team as associate executive director. Varella brings with him 25 years of operations and finance experience in the senior living industry. Most recently, he served as the executive director of Quincy Village Retirement Community in Waynesboro, Pa. He also held regional positions with Marriott International Senior Living Services. At Riderwood, Varella will focus on campus operations as well as workforce training and development. He says he is happy to be back in Maryland, and especially to be working for Erickson Living. For the last 12 or 13 years, since my Marriott Senior Living Services days, many of my colleagues that I shared my career with have joined the Erickson family, Varella says. The best part is being back in the area, meeting new staff and residents, and seeing old friends again.
