The Redwoods has a new CEO! Hunter Moore, an expert in senior housing planning and operations, joined the senior community in November, following an extensive national search and interviews with Redwoods Board members, Redwoods residents, and community leaders.
In announcing his hiring, Redwoods Board chair Claire McAuliffe said, “Hunter brings an extraordinary wealth of experience and a vision and perspective that will serve us well. This, coupled with his long-time commitment to enhancing the quality of life of older adults, made him absolutely the right choice for us.”
Moore comes to The Redwoods with experience in developing and running innovative senior communities at local, regional, national and international levels, and has served as a expert consultant in the field.
His interest in senior issues began early in life when he observed first-hand the pluses and minuses of senior housing when one of his grandparents needed a more protective environment. “Working in the field was a natural choice for me,” he says. “And right now, I am personally living these issues, since my parents are in a continuing care community.”
Since his arrival, Moore has been busy getting acquainted with Redwoods residents, staff, and volunteers, as well as the community-at-large. “I’ve already learned a tremendous amount about the culture of The Redwoods and the pioneering, creative and activist spirit for which this special place is known. I am honored to be leading this wonderful organization and look forward to continue to fulfill our mission of providing high quality, affordable housing and services to seniors in Marin County.”
Moore, who was born and raised in Massachusets, succeeds Barbara Solomon, who retired as CEO after 16 years of service. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he is married and has two grown children. He currently lives in Sausalito.
