Joe Anderson has been named president and CEO of Senior Quality Lifestyles Corp., becoming the only full-time employee at the nonprofit's corporate office in suburban Dallas while others associated with the organization move into new positions, the company announced Wednesday.

Anderson, who had been chairman of the nonprofit's board of directors since 2013, succeeds Stan Waterhouse, who has been named president and CEO of Seniority Inc., the company's wholly owned management subsidiary that manages the company's properties on a day-to-day basis. Anderson is now an ex-officio member of the SQLC board.

In his new role as president and CEO, Anderson will represent the board to the six life care communities sponsored and operated by SQLC and to Seniority.

SQLC earlier this year finalized the purchase of Seniority from the organization now known as HumanGood, formerly Cornerstone Affiliates, under which American Baptist Homes of the West and be.group have operated since their May 2016 affiliation. Seniority had been launched in 1997 as a wholly owned subsidiary of ABHOW.

“The recent acquisition of Seniority will allow us to consolidate all community management functions and attain greater operating efficiency without sacrificing our full range of services to residents,” said Scott Collier, who succeeds Anderson as chairman of the SQLC board. Collier formerly was vice chairman and joined the board as a member in 2014. He is a managing partner of JLL in Dallas.

Seniority is managing Edgemere (Dallas), The Buckingham (Houston), Querencia at Barton Creek (Austin, TX), Mirador (Corpus Christi, TX), The Stayton at Museum Way (Fort Worth, TX) and The Barrington of Carmel (Indianapolis). The acquisition of Seniority also included third-party management contracts of assisted living/memory support communities in California and Oklahoma as well as several additional sites under development.

Anderson continues as chairman of the SQLC Foundation, the company's charitable subsidiary.

Bernie Francis has been named vice chairman of the SQLC board. Serving on the board since 2002, he is the owner of Business Control Systems and First-Class Caregivers.
