Northbridge Companies, proudly announces that John Lamirande, Executive Director of Northbridge managed Seasons of Danvers, was recently awarded the Massachusetts Assisted Living Association (MASS-ALA) executive director of the year leadership award. MASS-ALA made the announcement at their annual award ceremony on May 23, 2018.
Joining Northbridge Companies in 2015 as a Business Office Director, Lamirande quickly grew to the role of Executive Director at Seasons of Danvers, which provides Alzheimer’s and dementia care on the North Shore. He is known as a proven and trusted leader in his community, and is well respected and beloved by residents, families and associates alike.
“When presented with the opportunity to nominate our leader for this award, we jumped at the opportunity,” stated Janelle Terciak, Program Director at Seasons of Danvers. “John is a leader who can manage and operate our community with effortless efficiency while also having immense compassion and love for our residents, families, and associates. He’s often been found serving meals at dinner, touching up paint in the lobby, taking a walk with a resident to brighten their day or even picking up associates from home during snow storms to ensure they have a safe ride to work.”
Lamirande, who while serving as Seasons of Danvers’ Executive Director, received a degree in business from Endicott College just two weeks ago. He stated, “I am humbled and honored to except this award. I am passionate about working with seniors and their families to bring the best level of quality and care to Seasons. It is the strength of my team that makes all the difference in the world.”
“At Northbridge we strive to focus on Compassion, Integrity and Respect,” said Wendy Nowokunski, President, Northbridge Companies. “John leads with these attributes, every day. We are proud that John is an integral part of the Northbridge family.”
