A Message from Marc Stanley, Chair, The Legacy Senior Communities Board of Trustees

The Legacy Senior Communities, Inc. is excited to announce that Melissa Orth has accepted the position of President and CEO, effective August 21, 2017.

For the past 17 years, Melissa has served as the Chief Operating Officer/Chief Financial Officer of Greenhill School. In that capacity, she supervised the management of campus operations including facilities, human resources, technology, security, health services, and purchasing. She also managed all financial operations and financial reporting, with an operating budget and total assets similar in size to The Legacy’s. Melissa also attended and participated in all meetings of the Development, Campaign Steering, and Executive Committees, as well as the Board of Trustees.

Prior to joining Greenhill, Melissa was Vice-President of Finance for the American Heart Association, National Center and was an Audit and Business Advisory Manager for Arthur Andersen, LLP. She still maintains her CPA license.

Outside of Greenhill, Melissa has been very involved in many professional and civic activities. She was elected by her peers as the Board Chair of the National Business Officers Association and is a current finance committee member of Saint Philip School and Community Center and the Dallas Women’s Foundation.

I would like to thank The Legacy’s Search Committee and Executive Committee for their tremendous work (and patience) during this search process. I hope you will meet Melissa soon and welcome her to The Legacy!
