SHELBURNE, VT—Wake Robin, a life plan community and home to about 400 older adults, has named Meagan Buckley (of Richmond) as president and CEO.
Buckley has served as the director of health and resident services at Wake Robin for five years, and held the interim president and CEO role prior to her appointment. She is a licensed nursing home administrator who held leadership positions within the industry before joining Wake Robin’s staff.
“Meagan has a proven track record, knows the community very well and is able to get things done effectively with compassion, poise and a wonderful sense of humor,” Wake Robin board chair John Maitland said. “We are all very excited to work with Meagan in her new position.”
Buckley succeeds outgoing president and CEO Martha Maksym, who led Wake Robin for three years—including through the unprecedented COVID pandemic—before retiring.
“I am beyond excited to take over this role and look forward to continuing as a member of the Wake Robin family, which is filled with lovely, caring and kind people,” said Buckley. “I thank the community for its trust in me and look forward to our next chapter together.”
