Mr. McAfee will remain employed through December 9, 2020 to support the transition, at which time Mr. McAfee also will retire from the Company’s Board of Directors.
Mr. Hendrickson brings significant experience, most recently serving as Chief Financial Officer of Capital Senior Living, one of the nation’s largest operators of independent living, assisted living and memory care communities for senior adults, since May 2014, and as Chief Financial Officer of Belo Corp., a television company that owned and operated network-affiliated television stations and their associated websites, from 2010 through 2014.
"We are supremely grateful for Larry’s contribution and efforts as well as his leadership over these past 17 years; the transformation of our Company in that timeframe has been significant," said Chris Reading, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. "Earlier this year after announcing his retirement Larry let us know that he would defer that date until we were on secure footing with respect to our COVID-19 response. Our entire team has worked very hard to get us to the point where we have high confidence in our continued path forward. Larry has helped tremendously with those efforts and has more than earned his well-deserved retirement after more than 17 years with our Company. I know all of our employees and partners join me in thanking Larry for his tremendous contributions as well as wishing him much continued health and happiness in his well-earned retirement."
Mr. Reading continued, "We are also excited to welcome Carey to our USPH family as our Chief Financial Officer following a very comprehensive search beginning in January of this year. Carey has a long and proven track record as a public company CFO with Capital Senior Living and prior to that with BELO. In addition to his experience, which is significant, he will be a great cultural fit for us and embodies the servant leadership that we look for in our senior executives. Carey has established himself as a person of great character and integrity and our team is looking forward to helping him to settle in to his new role with us beginning in November."
