Windsor, California: Oakmont Senior Living has created two positions and promoted two team members to ensure the company continues its commitment to top-quality culinary experiences, and engaging and interactive resident programming.
Longtime Oakmont Senior Living executive Rina Younan has been named vice president of program development and will oversee culinary, memory care and activities. Oakmont also promoted Chef Andrew Moret to director of culinary.
Younan joined Oakmont in 2013. She has more than 16 years of experience in the culinary arts and more than half of that in an executive leadership role. Her new position allows her to collaborate with community leaders companywide bringing new concepts forward and further enhancing Oakmont’s position as a leading senior living provider. She has successfully executed new programs from concept to implementation during her Oakmont tenure in culinary as well as other key areas of operations.
“I am thrilled to take on additional responsibility at Oakmont and help keep our company at the forefront of innovation in both the programming and culinary areas. Oakmont has shown it will invest in its team members and my new role and Andrew’s show that commitment,” Younan said.
Moret joined Oakmont about a year ago as regional executive chef specialist for the company’s Central Region, supporting communities in Central California and two in Las Vegas. He has been working in the senior living space for about seven years.
As director of culinary, Moret will have general oversight of the culinary department in all areas, ensuring Oakmont standards are met so that the service exceeds the customer expectation. He will lead the culinary specialists in supporting all communities in every aspect of culinary operations. Moret and Younan will continue to work closely to create, develop, implement and execute programs that will bring increased value to the overall operation and performance of the culinary department.
“Oakmont has been wonderful and I appreciate the opportunity to continue to grow our culinary services and bring first-rate, healthy food to our residents. We continue to evolve and help change the way people think about dining in senior living,” Moret said.
