November 23, 2020 – West Bend, WI – Lynn Olson, Chief Executive Officer at Cedar Community, is retiring.
Cedar Community Board Member Pastor Eric Kirkegaard said Olson has been a great asset to Cedar Community. “He’s done a great job during a time that has a number of challenges,” said Kirkegaard. “Lynn was a visionary and had care and compassion for everything surrounding the facility.
“He’s done a good job of helping the organization transition and his leadership has certainly helped especially during a changing market,” Kirkegaard said.
As part of the transition planning, the board has formed a search committee to help identify and select Cedar Community’s next CEO.
The board has engaged the highly respected executive search firm WittKieffer to conduct a national search for the next Chief Executive Officer for Cedar Community.
The board-designated search committee will work to gather input from various Cedar Community stakeholders to help the firm develop a profile for the search, which will begin immediately.
Olson is on vacation this week and his comments will be added when information is available.
