Sun Health is pleased to announce Dan Liguori as the new executive director of The Colonnade.
Mr. Liguori is responsible for leading, managing and ensuring the overall success of the Life Care community, home to more than 300 residents.
He served as interim executive director of The Colonnade for two months before taking the leadership reins in September.
Mr. Liguori’s 10-year career with Sun Health began at La Loma Village, the organization’s Life Care community in Litchfield Park, where he was responsible for all accounting duties at the community. His tenure at La Loma included a stint in 2011 as the interim executive director. In 2015, he was promoted to assistant controller for all of Sun Health Senior Living.
“Dan’s dedication to the residents, staff and the organization are clearly visible through his work ethic, commitment to excellence and his calm, practical approach to finding solutions,” said Sharon Grambow, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Sun Health Senior Living.
Mr. Liguori, who hails from Niles, Ohio, earned an accounting degree from Youngstown State University, Ohio and spent the first 20 years of his career working in corporate accounting in his home state.
He landed a marketing job for an assisted living community near Cleveland, where he discovered an affinity for working with older adults. Lured by warmer weather, he moved to Arizona in 2005 and shortly after, was hired by La Loma Village.
His approach to his new role is straightforward: “My goal is to make the campus a great place for residents as well as staff.”
