FREEHOLD, NJ — Distinctive Living has appointed industry veteran Angela Clark as chief sales & marketing officer. Clark brings with her 25 years of operational management in senior housing across sales and marketing, sales training and development, operational strategy, multi-site management, strategic planning, and new product development.
Clark’s expertise ranges from small growing brands to established communities to organizations in acquisition mode, and she has experience working with seniors in active adult, independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. In her new role, Clark is responsible for growing a strong brand presence in the communities Distinctive Living serves.
As part of Clark’s passion to serve seniors, she is also a voice for the senior living industry in cultivating the next generation of leaders, by teaching at the collegiate level. Clark has a long tenure teaching consumer marketing and sales strategy at both Washington State University and the University of Phoenix, and she now serves on the advisory board for the Carson School of Business for Washington State University.
“We wanted a seasoned marketing and sales leader who’s not afraid to innovate and inspire communities to raise the bar,” said Joe Jedlowski, Chairman and CEO of Distinctive in a press release. “Angela has spent her career pushing teams to perform at their best. Once we started discussing the role with her, we knew she was the right fit.”
“I’ve spent my career creating opportunities to provide our beloved senior population with the options for care they deserve,” said Clark. “It starts with the community, its operations and how it cares for its residents. After that, the sales and marketing functions fall into place.”
