SANTA BARBARA, Calif.—Senior Housing News (SHN) media has announced the first group of 2021 Changemakers. Sponsored by Yardi®, the interview series returns to spotlight exceptional industry leadership.

Among this year’s class are Terri Cunliffe, CEO, Covenant Living; Les Strech, president, Thrive Senior Living; and Michael Joseph, president, Clover Management. These executives have implemented unique strategies while navigating challenges—including during the pandemic—earning them the Changemaker honor.

Each Changemaker is the subject of an in-depth interview posted at the SHN Changemakers website. Over the next several months, SHN will recognize additional leaders in senior living.

“The senior living industry has seen challenges like never before in the last year. Each Changemaker has exemplified strong leadership as they face these challenges, finding insightful solutions to benefit their residents and teams,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living at Yardi. “The interview series is an exceptional opportunity to honor these leaders. It’s empowering to share their stories, advice and insights given recent obstacles.”

As a leading provider of senior living technology, Yardi is pleased to sponsor the Changemakers series for a third year.
