NEWPORT BEACH, CA–Clearwater Senior Living (CSL) announced today the appointment of Danielle Morgan as president. Utilizing over 20 years of experience, Morgan will be instrumental in overseeing operations and expanding the company’s footprint throughout the Western United States including independent, assisted living and memory care communities.
According to CSL’s Chief Executive Officer Tony Ferrero, Morgan was a clear choice for the role, citing her dedication and shared values in providing high-quality retirement living and exceptional services for seniors and their families.
“I’m looking forward to working side-by-side with Danielle,” said Ferrero. “She authentically embraces her leadership responsibilities, the associates she works with, and the residents and families she serves. That in combination with her professional expertise and strategic mindset makes her a valued asset to our team.”
Over the course of her career, Morgan has held numerous leadership roles. Most recently she served as chief operations officer for MBK Senior Living. In this role Morgan was responsible for day-to-day operations oversight for all of MBK’s communities with an NOI budget totaling $40 million. In addition, she was pivotal in promoting MBK’s company culture through strong relationships with customers, employees, and referral sources.
