Presbyterian Communities and Services has named Tim Mallad as president of the not-for-profit organization, which is comprised of premier continuing care retirement communities Presbyterian Village North and Grace Presbyterian Village, as well as Faith Presbyterian Hospice and the T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center. A resident of Dallas, Mallad brings nearly 30 years of senior living experience to the organization. Phil Wentworth, chairman of the board of directors of Presbyterian Communities and Services, made the announcement.
“I am thrilled to have Tim join our team. He brings a broad perspective that includes decades of experience working for a for-profit company while helping not-for-profit communities achieve their goals and fulfill their visions. Tim has the ideal background necessary to be successful in this position,” said Wentworth. “Tim has a genuine passion for helping seniors, he is mission-driven and his enthusiasm is contagious. I am confident that he will support our organization’s values while focusing on the residents’ needs and leading the team members by example.”
Mallad joins Presbyterian Communities and Services from Irving-based Greystone Communities, where he most recently served as first vice president. Throughout his career, Mallad has specialized in assisting faith-based, not-for-profit communities in all phases of development and operations. He directed leadership responsibilities for multiple continuing care retirement communities across the country. He has led not-for-profit organizations through cultural and organizational change, while creating, implementing and overseeing budgets, marketing efforts and sales strategies. In addition, Mallad has served as COO and executive director at the community level, as well as associate administrator and other sales and marketing positions.
“The values, mission and vision of Presbyterian Communities and Services align perfectly with my core beliefs. The high level of commitment to serve seniors in a unique way and the dedication of the team members and board resonate with me. I feel deeply connected to seniors, and I am grateful for the countless ways they have enriched my life over the years. I look forward to learning from the residents, families and team members I will work with in this new role,” said Mallad. “This is a pivotal time for the organization, with a major expansion underway at Presbyterian Village North, as well as a unique standalone hospice care center under construction. I am honored to join the organization, and it is my privilege to work with a team that positively impacts the lives of more than 1,200 individuals and their families each and every day in greater Dallas.”
Mallad was named president after an extensive national search that took nearly a year to complete. Members of the board and search committee believe the thorough effort will greatly benefit the families the organization serves.
“I am confident that Tim’s extensive experience and core values make him the right individual to lead the organization forward,” said Mike Wright, chairman of the selection committee. “Tim is a proven leader who has a track record of delivering results.”
“The members of the board of directors and I are very confident that Tim is an excellent addition to the leadership team,” said Ron Gafford, vice chairman of the board of directors of Presbyterian Communities and Services. “The board is pleased with the rigorous process the search committee underwent and is extraordinarily pleased with the results.”
Mallad plans to spend the first 90 days immersing himself in the day-to-day operations by visiting with residents and staff at the communities and Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
“I plan to observe, listen and achieve a deep understanding of the culture and history of this organization and its entities,” said Mallad. “My career has given me the foundation necessary to provide guidance and leadership. I believe we are a team, and together, we can look at unique ways to incorporate hospitality, customer service and care to provide meaningful and enriching experiences to the seniors and families we serve.”
