LACONIA — With the announcement of its partnership with Life Care Services (see accompanying story), the Taylor Community also announced the retirement of Chief Executive Officer Bob Selig and promotion of Michael Flaherty from administrator to executive director of the continuing care retirement community
Two years ago Selig became the fourth CEO of the Taylor Community in seven years, on a temporary basis, and last year was appointed to the position after a nationwide search. During his tenure he achieved significant savings by renegotiating the long-term debt and husbanded resources best applied elsewhere by selling satellite communities in Moultonborough and Sandwich. The memory care unit, Opechee Harbor, was opened and soon reached full occupancy.
Selig will remain a trustee of the Taylor Community and serve as vice-chairman of the board. "It's been a great ride," he said yesterday, "and its not over."
After interviewing more than 30 candidates for the new position of executive director, LCS selected Flaherty, the current administrator of the Taylor Community, who has decades of experience in health care, including several senior leadership positions in organizations caring for senior citizens. He received his bachelor's degree from Boston College, earned Master's degrees in business administration and health administration from Suffolk University and a certificate in Comparative Public Health Policy from Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.
