Ginger Cove Appoints New CEO

ANNAPOLIS, MD–Ginger Cove, Anne Arundel County’s only internationally-accredited retirement community, has appointed William (Bill) M. Holman as its new CEO effective January 8, 2018.

He succeeds Dr. Edgar E. Mallick, Jr., who is retiring at the end of 2017 after a 42-year career, the last 14-1/2 years with Ginger Cove.

“Bill’s experience and track record of success in senior housing is a perfect fit with Ginger Cove’s strategic plan and our resident culture,” said Edward R. McDevitt, M.D., president of its board of directors. “His accomplishments bring great value to the table for the benefit of our residents.”

The appointment was made following an extensive national search process, with more than 100 individuals expressing interest. The search process was facilitated by the Deffet Group of Ostrander, Ohio.

Holman has served as president and CEO of Sagepoint Senior Living Services, Inc. in La Plata, MD, since 2011. During his tenure, Sagepoint opened a small-house memory care unit, expanded an “in-home” care agency, planned for construction of a 60-apartment assisted living building, and achieved a five-star Medicare rating. Prior to that, he was Sage Point’s vice president and CFO.

Holman is an adjunct professor at the Erickson School of Aging Services and has presented at national and regional conferences. In addition to completing several doctoral-level classes in Public Policy at Johns Hopkins University, he holds a M.A. from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (Management of Aging Services) and B.S. degrees from Frostburg University (Finance) and Towson State University (Accounting). He is married with two children.
