RICHMOND, Virginia—Mick Feauto, LifeSpire of Virginia’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), announced his retirement June 27, effective Dec. 31, 2017. Feauto has served as LifeSpire’s executive vice president and COO since 2015. He has 34 years of senior industry experience as a nursing home administrator, executive director, regional vice president of operations, and senior regional vice president of operations. In the 10 years before coming to LifeSpire, Feauto served in regional roles with Life Care Services with oversight of 28 continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs).
During his tenure at LifeSpire, “Mick led our communities through a number of substantive changes with remarkable results,” said Jonathan Cook, LifeSpire president and chief executive officer. “We would not be where we are today without his leadership and vision.”
Cook said the search for Feauto’s successor is underway, and applications will be accepted through July 31, 2017, with interviews expected in August.
“We anticipate having the person selected and on board prior to Mick’s departure to assist with transition,” Cook said. More information and a job description are available on LifeSpire’s website.
In retirement, Feauto and his wife, Laura, plan to split time between their homes in Iowa and Florida.
“Please thank Mick for his service and join me in congratulating him on a fantastic career,” Cook said.
