ST. PAUL, MN — Presbyterian Homes & Services President/CEO Dan Lindh has announced his retirement after a career of more than 47 years with the organization according to a press release. The board of directors of the faith-based provider of senior housing, care, and services projects the leadership transition with Lindh to be completed by spring 2025.
“We are grateful for Dan’s leadership of PHS and the impact his service has had on tens of thousands of residents, families, donors, employees, and communities over his 47 years at Presbyterian Homes & Services,” commented Jim Green, chair of the PHS Board of Directors. “Dan’s unwavering commitment to serving older adults, his never-ending energy to upholding a deeply rooted Christian culture and his incredible business acumen have been instrumental in building an organization deeply focused on living out its mission of enriching the lives and touching the hearts of older adults.”
Lindh joined PHS in 1976 as an accountant. Over time, he has served as chief financial officer, chief administrative officer, head of project development and chief operating officer prior to being named president and CEO in 1996. During his tenure, PHS has grown to provide care to more than 27,000 older adults through PHS-affiliated communities and Optage home and community services.
“It’s been an incredible blessing to be part of a mission and purpose of honoring God by enriching the lives and touching the lives of older adults and those who serve them,” said Lindh. “I am humbled, thankful, and privileged to have been part of this ministry for my entire career. I have been honored to work side-by-side with an outstanding board and a great leadership team, as well as capable and extraordinarily gifted staff.”
The PHS Board of Directors has launched a national search for the next CEO.
