St. John’s Announces New Vice President of Senior Housing
St. John’s is pleased to announce that Anthony Zaccaglino has been promoted to vice president of senior housing after previously serving as director of operations for five years. Zaccaglino assumes the leadership position formerly held by Paul Bartlett, who retired after spending 30 years in the senior housing/retirement industry.
Zaccaglino will oversee day-to-day operations of St. John’s Meadows and Brickstone by St. John’s, both in Brighton. St. John’s Meadows offers multi-level, independent living in private, two-bedroom cottages and apartments and Brickstone by St. John’s, located on 30 acres, offers contemporary independent living in uniquely designed apartments, bungalows and townhomes.
Zaccaglino will lead the successful achievement of strategic, operation, quality and financial goals and will have direct oversight of an interdisciplinary team of more than 150 staff members working collaboratively to ensure the highest level of customer service is provided to St. John’s residents. Zaccaglino’s responsibilities also include ensuring all New York State Department of Health regulations associated with St. John’s Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR) certification are met.
“Tony has been an integral part of the St. John’s team for the past nine years and, with this promotion, we are thrilled to recognize his commitment to our residents and our organization,” St. John’s President and CEO Charlie Runyon said. “With his strategic insight and dedication to customer service, we look forward to Tony leading St. John’s Meadows and Brickstone by St. John’s while ensuring our senior housing continues to offer the best experience for our residents and staff.”
Zaccaglino went to Monroe Community College, where he earned his Associate of Applied Science in hospitality management in 2009. He earned a Bachelor of Science in international hospitality and service innovation from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2011. During college, he worked at Schooner’s Riverside Pub in Rochester and the Woodcliff Hotel & Spa in Perinton. Both experiences immersed him in different aspects of the hospitality industry. In October 2010, he became the assistant general manager for Shooters Sports Bar & Grill. He was promoted to general manager in January 2011 and began overseeing the restaurant’s two locations in Fairport and Farmington. Zaccaglino oversaw purchasing, scheduling, inventory, ordering, and hiring and training employees. In 2012, he began employment with St. John’s Meadows as dining service manager, and in 2016, he became the director of operations at St. John’s Meadows, a role he assumed until his recent promotion to vice president of senior housing.
Zaccaglino lives in Webster, New York, with his wife and daughter.
