The Stayton at Museum Way, a nonprofit Life Care Community located in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District, is pleased to announce that Scott Thomas has been named executive director.
Thomas spent the past two decades in the hospitality and hotel industries. He held positions with luxury hotel chains including The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, as well as private country clubs across the country.
“We couldn’t ask for a better leader to help us continue to provide outstanding service and an unmatched lifestyle and quality of care to seniors in the area,” said Scott Collier, chairman of the board of directors for The Stayton. “Scott’s experience in the hospitality and hotel industries will translate well to senior living because of his commitment to providing an environment full of new experiences where residents can truly enjoy life. We look forward to seeing the energy and ideas he brings to the team.”
“I am excited to take on this new role, and I have received support and encouragement from the team members and residents,” said Thomas. “The senior living and hospitality industries have many similarities. In my previous leadership roles, I made sure our guests were well taken care of, had memorable encounters, and felt energized. I will work diligently to ensure exceptional service is provided to residents of The Stayton, much like I did at the resorts and hotels in the past. This is a vibrant and thriving community, and I hope to make a difference in the lives of seniors and their families.
“It is especially gratifying for me to be able to return to my hometown,” Thomas continued. “I went to school with children and grandchildren of many residents who have made The Stayton their home, and I recognized the names of at least 20 residents right away. “It’s comforting to know that I am around families I know personally. I want all residents and their families to know this community is a place where they can feel at home and create memories, and I am looking forward to creating my own memories in the years to come.”
