Seniors housing industry veteran Matthew Phillips has joined Chicago-based Senior Lifestyle Corporation as Executive Vice President. Matt is teaming up with an already experienced development group that includes Jerry Frumm, Executive Vice President, and Bob Gawronski, Vice President of Development. Matt’s initial focus at Senior Lifestyle will be the design and development of a state of the art prototype for assisted living and memory care residents.
Matt joins Senior Lifestyle from Integrated Development Group (“IDG”), which he founded in 2006. Senior Lifestyle and IDG have arranged for Matt to continue to oversee a luxury apartment project under construction at 850 Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL and the development of The Club at Briarcliff Manor, a luxury CCRC in Westchester County, NY, both IDG projects. Before founding IDG, Matthew was Senior Vice President of Development for Classic Residence by Hyatt (now known as Vi Senior Living). Earlier in his Classic Residence career, he was the General Counsel where he was responsible for legal, regulatory and operational matters in addition to negotiating transactions and financing. Prior to Classic Residence, Matt was a Partner at the Chicago law firm of Bell, Boyd & Lloyd (now K&L Gates). He is actively involved with industry associations including the American Seniors Housing Association, National Investment Center and Urban Land Institute. Matt’s deep relationships with professionals and organizations in the legal, real estate, construction, design and seniors housing industries are a key asset.
In addition to Mr. Phillips, Senior Lifestyle has added additional resources to the Development team. Nancy Cutter joins as Vice President of Development and Kate DeCoursey joins as Vice President of Finance. Ms. Cutter and Ms. DeCoursey previously worked with Matt at IDG.
