Monte says that Wendy “has distinguished herself through a period of significant growth in the company.” He adds, “I have every confidence in her leadership abilities as we take on new challenges in the next decade. We wish Wendy every success in her new role.”

Monte Powell will retain the title of president.

The Powell’s recently broke ground for construction of twelve new cottages on the 20 acres occupied by Village Green Retirement Campus in Federal Way. Wendy is excited about this new development, and says she is looking forward to her increased responsibilities. “I plan to continue enhancing the already excellent services we deliver to our current residents,” she says. “Going forward, I want to make sure our premier communities are attractive to new residents and to experienced, motivated employees.”
