AtriaLOUISVILLE, KY — Atria Management Company, an operator of senior living communities across the United States and Canada, has appointed Holly Belter-Chesser as Chief Executive Officer according to a press release. The move is part of a planned leadership transition process. Belter-Chesser has served Atria in key leadership roles over the past 15 years, including most recently as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer.

After 25 years, John Moore is stepping down from his roles as Chairman and CEO of Atria. Moore remains a member of the company’s Board of Directors, as well as an advisor to help ensure a smooth transition.

“I am honored to lead Atria at this important time for our Company and our industry, when demand for senior housing is strong and getting stronger,” said Belter-Chesser. “With a focus on operational excellence, we are well positioned to succeed and further improve our delivery of care, hospitality, and support for residents. I am grateful for John’s leadership and the foundation he built for Atria, including our industry-leading Quality Enhancement program, forwarding-thinking investments in technology, and employee support programs like Atria Cares.”

Belter-Chesser has held leadership roles of increasing responsibility since joining Atria in 2008, including serving as CFO since 2020 and CAO since 2023; she previously served as SVP of business optimization & operations support and VP of finance and business analysis.

“Serving as Atria’s Chairman and CEO has been a privilege and the highlight of my career,” said Moore. “I am incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished, and after doing this for nearly 25 years, I am confident this is the right time and team to lead Atria into its next chapter as I step back into a director role. While I will miss working with the team day-to-day, I am very excited to be handing the reins to Holly, who is uniquely equipped to lead the company into a bright future. I can’t wait to watch Holly and her team drive the business forward.”

“I look forward to continuing to work with Atria’s experienced leadership team and our talented and dedicated employees who serve 36,000 residents every day,” Belter-Chesser added. “I am excited about the bright future we have ahead of us here at Atria.”
