The Buckingham, Houston’s premier senior living community, is pleased to announce the appointment of Philip Jacob to associate executive director. The announcement was made by Darrell Sheaffer, executive director of The Buckingham. Jacob started at The Buckingham as health care administrator nearly six years ago and has spent two decades in the hospitality and health care industries.
“We are proud to promote Phil to associate executive director of The Buckingham,” said Sheaffer. “He has been an exceptional member of The Buckingham team. With his familiarity with our community, residents, families and culture, we know that he will thrive in this new role. His commitment to serving our residents and their families is unmatched. We couldn’t ask for a better leader within our community as we continue to build on our reputation of exceptional service for area seniors.”
“With 10 years of experience in senior living and health care, Jacob focuses on ensuring that he meets the needs of residents and their loved ones,” continued Sheaffer. “Having been drawn to senior living after the passing of his father, he leads through the desire to positively impact seniors in all levels of living. Phil will continue to oversee the operations of the community’s health care program so that it runs in accordance with the highest quality of service. He will also handle the day-to-day activities of the community, meeting with each department to ensure daily operations run smoothly. However, it is Phil’s understanding of the community that will best guide him as he promotes a successful team environment and maintains satisfaction of residents and their families.”
“It is an honor to take on this role and provide a wonderful lifestyle and superior care for our residents,” said Jacob. “I have received an incredible amount of support and encouragement from the entire Buckingham family, and I am excited to continue fostering an environment of excellence. As associate executive director, I will have the opportunity to grow relationships with those we serve for years to come. My goal is to build communications between our residents and team members so we can elevate our ability to individualize our approach and infuse a culture of hospitality in all levels of living.”
