RAPID CITY, SD – Primrose Retirement Communities has named Rapid City Executive Director Lynn Ivey as the Primrose Executive Director of the Year. The announcement was made last month during the company’s annual Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
Ivey has served as the Executive Director of Primrose of Rapid City for the past seventeen years. In the role of Executive Director, she oversees the day-to-day operations of the entire community and acted as a resource and leader for the Rapid City Primrose Team.
“Primrose has given me the opportunity to be involved in the lives of so many great seniors and their families for the past 17 years,” said Ivey. “I am very grateful to have heard their stories and shared in their joys, laughter, and tears. A building is a structure; it takes people to make it a home, and at Primrose, our great staff make it a home Residents can be proud of. I would like to thank my staff for their outstanding efforts in making Primrose the premier Retirement Community in Rapid City.”
“People like Lynn are the kind of leaders that have helped make Primrose the great success that it is today,” said Primrose Retirement Communities President BJ Schaefbauer. “Each member of the team plays an important role in our mission here at Primrose, but it’s the job of our Executive Directors to guide each community as they seek to provide the highest levels of service to our residents.
