Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) December 19, 2011
Concierge Care Advisors (CCA) announced the hiring of Cindi Laws today as the company continues to expand nationally. The Seattle, Washington-based company expanded 1000% during its first year of operation, and is poised for more dramatic growth in 2012. CCA strives to elevate the senior care and housing referral services industry through personalized attention. The agency helps individuals and families identify the best senior housing, in-home care, and assisted living facilities based on the unique circumstances of each individual client.
Cindi Laws joins CCA as Vice President of Business Development in order to advance CCA's unique service for families and their loved ones across the nation. With a background in public affairs and public policy development dating back to the 1980s, Cindi brings with her a wealth of experience in the U.S. Senate and Congress, the Washington State Legislature, the non-profit sector, and statewide long-term care associations.
CCA served as a model for “Best Practices” as Cindi – then-Executive Director of the Washington State Residential Care Council (WSRCC), the trade association representing over 3,000 adult family homes – helped develop and promote the first-in-the-nation regulation of referral agencies in 2011 ( http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=1494 ). While with WSRCC, she worked tirelessly for better industry standards, and she expanded the association’s offerings of continuing education by more than 400%. Her role at CCA will expand nationwide the company and its philosophy of providing the very best in service and protections for seniors and people with disabilities. She will also be working across government and advocacy sectors to ensure that the placement and referral industry, in addition to other senior-sector services, are of the highest standard as the population of the nation ages.
Cindi Laws has advanced complex policy issues – including aerospace, high tech, nuclear power, health care, environment, and civil rights – and engaged in international media outreach campaigns for multinational organizations. Cindi held public office in Seattle, and she has served on numerous boards, commissions, service groups, and charitable organizations.
From its very inception, CCA has led the way amongst senior placement and referral agencies. While not the first, nor the largest in the field, CCA offers credentialed, trained, and thoroughly vetted care advisors who work towards arriving at the best possible outcome for each situation. “We came into being because of our own negative experiences seeking long-term residential care for family members,” said Marc Lilly, co-founder and CEO. “Like many adults, I found myself confounded and frustrated, and knew there had to be a better way, so we created a detailed and complex set of standards. Now the demand for our top-line advisors is allowing us to expand into neighboring states. We are poised to grow across the country. Cindi has the skills to assist us with this expansion while ensuring that standards across each sector are raised.”
