After nearly a decade of service, Williamsburg Landing President and CEO Steve Montgomery has announced plans to retire next year.
James Golden, Chairman of the Williamsburg Landing Board of Directors, announced Montgomery’s intentions to retire at the end of June 2016.
“Steve has done a masterful job sustaining Williamsburg Landing as the premier CCRC in the region,” Golden said. “He made significant improvements in virtually every area of Williamsburg Landing’s operations, including superb health care and outstanding resident services.”
Montgomery has been well-known in the Williamsburg community for more than 30 years, in part for his work as a member of the Williamsburg Community Health Foundation Board of Directors, the Community Advisory Committee for Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, the James City County Economic Development Authority, the “ChooseHome” Board of Directors, and the Rotary Club of Williamsburg.
He previously served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Williamsburg Community Hospital, regional vice president mid-Atlantic for Premier Inc., vice president/operations for Mary Immaculate Hospital, and special consultant for Riverside Health System and administrator of Riverside Rehabilitation Institute.
The advanced notice of Montgomery’s retirement will help to facilitate a smooth transition over the course of the next year in preparation for his actual day of departure.
The board, which is made up of local community leaders, will form a search committee this summer and launch a formal search for the new CEO this fall.
