Eve Jakoboski assumes new role as Vice President of Administration
BELLEVUE, Wash. – November 28, 2017 – Today, Transforming Age announced Eve Jakoboski as its new Vice President of Administration. With over 21 years of human resources, operations, and accounting expertise, Jakoboski has become a key leader in the growing organization, aligning people and operational strategies, with a special focus on creating an inspiring workplace culture. In addition to already overseeing human resources, risk management, benefits and payroll, in her new role, Jakoboski will now be responsible for corporate office operations and administration.
This transition follows many recent notable internal promotions within Transforming Age as the organization continues to expand the impact of its mission to transform the perception of age and enhance the lives of older adults. In the last 12 months, the organization has grown from serving just 600 seniors across three communities to over 5,000 seniors – 2,000 of whom live at 15 communities in three states and an additional 3,000 through the Seattle-based affiliate Full Life Care, a not-for-profit home and community based program. Torsten Hirche, President and CEO of Transforming Age, maintains that creating advancement opportunities for leaders within the organization, like Jakoboski, who are creative-thinkers and mission-focused, enables the organization to continue its rapid growth, enriching the culture, and igniting its mission.
“Eve has been a valuable member of the executive management team,” said Hirche. “Her diverse background in health care, hospitality, and senior living, combined with her clear passion for our mission has been an invaluable resource as we continue to grow the impact of our efforts to improve the lives of older adults.”
Jakoboski joined Transforming Age in 2014 as the Director of Human Resources. She was quickly promoted to Vice President of Human Resources and is admired by team members for her non-traditional, creative approach. Having previously held leadership positions in operations and finance in the hospitality industry, Jakoboski’s unique perspective was a key factor in extending her responsibilities.
“I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to continue to serve our residents and team members in this expanded role,” Jakoboski said. “Our commitment to our amazing culture, mission, vision and values is evident in everything we do.”
