Lenbrook, Atlanta's only continuing care retirement community to be nationally accredited by CARF-CCAC, has named Dan Dornblaser to the position of Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance. Lenbrook has also elected Tripp Rawls to serve on its Board of Directors.
Dornblaser brings over 30 years of commercial banking and not-for-profit healthcare finance experience to his new position at Lenbrook. He is also keenly familiar with Lenbrook's operations and culture as he has served on its Board of Directors since 2013. Lenbrook is a not-for-profit senior community in Buckhead serving over 500 residents, offering independent living apartments, personal care suites and Medicare-certified rehabilitative and skilled nursing services, including memory care.
"We are delighted to welcome Dan to his new role on our leadership team," said Chris Keysor, Lenbrook President and Chief Executive Officer. "Lenbrook will be well served by Dan's specialized not-for-profit, healthcare finance background and his executive expertise as he leads the financial operations of Lenbrook," Keysor added.
Most recently, Dornblaser served as Vice President of PubFunds for Fifth Third Bank in Atlanta where he was responsible for developing portfolios encompassing not-for-profit hospitals, higher education, municipalities and government entities. He previously directed the Healthcare Finance operations of KBC Bank N.V. throughout the southeastern U.S. and was responsible for establishing credit facilities for not-for-profit healthcare providers.
Dornblaser began his career with National Westminster Bank PLC and steadily advanced in management responsibilities to become Vice President of Public Finance and team leader for its West Coast division. A graduate of Illinois State University, he holds a bachelor's of science degree in finance with a minor in economics.
Lenbrook has also elected Tripp Rawls to its Board of Directors to succeed Dornblaser. Rawls is a seasoned financial services professional and currently First Vice President of Wealth Management in the Atlanta/Buckhead Merrill Lynch office. Rawls specializes in retirement planning and frequently addresses pre-retiree groups at major corporations and government agencies around the country. He also consults with foundation and association investment committees throughout their asset allocation and investment selection process.
"Tripp brings strong institutional investment experience to our board as well as insight into today's consumers who are planning for retirement," John Day, Chairman of Lenbrook's Board of Directors. "This is a highly relevant perspective for Lenbrook as we strive to meet the needs of our current and future retiree residents."
