COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Senior Independence, a provider of aging services pursuing new partnerships, hires a sales leader to a newly created post.

Mica Rees started as the nonprofit's vice president of business development Monday, March 11, 2013.

Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services' (OPRS) President/CEO Laurence C. Gumina says Rees has the right mix of sales management and networking skills.

"Her strong connections with past leadership and sales teams demonstrate she grows market share and nurtures partnerships," says Gumina.

Helping older adults age safely and comfortably in the place they call home, Senior Independence is a subsidiary of OPRS.

Senior Independence provides older adults with options, including personalized home health care (e.g., physical therapy), hospice care teams, in-home care (e.g., meal preparation) and therapeutic adult day centers.

"My priority is to start coaching my team while developing a plan for continued growth in our hospice and home health care divisions," says Rees.

Rees most recently held the title of regional manager of business development at Heartland Home Health Care, a division of HCR ManorCare, in Toledo, Ohio. In 2009, Kindred Healthcare hired her as district director of sales and development. She spent the seven years prior in a sales management position with Extendicare Health Services in Columbus, Ohio.

She earned a Master of Healthcare Administration from Ohio University in 1997. Rees lives in Pomeroy, Ohio, with her husband, David, and her son Garrett.

Rees regularly travels to Senior Independence's seven regional Ohio offices, but her home office is in Columbus, at OPRS' corporate headquarters. Contact her at 800-686-7800 or mrees(at)seniorindependence(dot)org.
