Company Expanding Footprint in Texas and Michigan

Through multiple new management contracts and partnerships, Solvere Senior Living continues to significantly expand its footprint. In February, the company assumed management of three independent living communities in Texas. An additional three independent living communities in Michigan are now under Solvere’s management. In September Solvere also assumed management of two independent living communities in Virginia, Verena at the Reserve in Williamsburg and Verena at the Glen in Glen Allen.

Communities now under Solvere management in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area consist of Preston Place in Plano, Meadowstone Place in Dallas and Parc Place in Bedford. A fourth community, The Villages of Windcrest assisted living and memory care community in Fredericksburg, Texas, is under construction and slated to open in October.

“With new management contracts for communities in Texas, Michigan and Virginia, we continue to grow our presence in the Southwest, the upper Midwest and Mid-Atlantic,” said Solvere President and CEO Kristin Kutac Ward. “We look forward to serving these markets and to more expansion in the future.”

New Solvere team members have been added to oversee the company’s growth and expansion. Kimberly Brawley, Regional Vice President, is responsible for managing all aspects of Solvere communities located in the Southwest and Southeast Regions. Marika Tufteskog-Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer, is responsible for pre-development, the development and new management initiatives for Solvere. Controller Joseph Brendlen is responsible for budgeting, payroll, financial management and providing financial analysis for capital investments, pricing decisions and contract negotiations. Laresa Colvin is Director of Team Engagement and Values and directs talent recruitment and retentions and manages human resource functions across all Solvere-managed communities.

Solvere, rooted in Latin for “to solve”, creates value-driven, innovative solutions for its senior living partners. Through its team of professionals in nursing and wellness, finance, operations and marketing, Solvere currently manages 14 communities in eight states, including Florida, New York, New Jersey, Texas, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Michigan.
