Longview Executive Director Plans To Retire

It is with the greatest appreciation for his 30 years of service that the Longview Board of Directors announces the retirement of its executive director, Mark A. Macera. Macera will continue to serve as Longview’s head administrator while a national search is conducted and until a new chief executive officer is in place.

“Under Mark’s extraordinary leadership, Longview, an Ithacare Community, has remained financially sound while adding exciting new living options, intergenerational programs, and services – always maintaining the highest commitment to the care and well-being of its residents, said John A. Krout, president, Longview Board of Directors.

As Macera will soon plan the next chapter in his life, he states “It has been my pleasure and privilege to work for Longview and to serve the Longview community.” A recognition of his outstanding and dedicated leadership will be announced at a later date.

“While it is hard to imagine Longview without Mark at the helm, we are confident in a smooth transition to new leadership,” said Krout. The national search to identify Macera’s successor is being conducted by the Deffet Group, Inc. Inquiries regarding this opportunity should be directed to
