NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) today announced that Chief Executive Officer Bill Sheriff has provided notice to the Board of Directors of his intent to retire after 28 years with the Company and its predecessors.  Mr. Sheriff, 69, will continue his service as CEO until a successor is named and the transition process is complete.  Following the transition, he will continue to serve the Company as a Board member and as a consultant pursuant to the terms of his existing employment agreement.

The Board has formed a search committee to assist it with the search for a new CEO and has retained an internationally recognized executive recruiting firm.  The Board intends to consider both internal and external candidates.

"On behalf of the Board and everyone at Brookdale, I would like to thank Bill for his leadership over the last six years as CEO and for his years of service to the Company and its predecessors.  Bill's dedication and commitment to the Company and its mission of serving seniors have been invaluable in making Brookdale the premier senior living provider," said Jeffrey R. Leeds, Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company.  "The Board has been working on executive succession plans for some time and is committed to conducting a thorough search to identify the right candidate to serve as Brookdale's next CEO."  

"I have been honored to serve with the talented and committed people of this Company – from the front-line associates to senior management – who so selflessly strive to meet the needs of our residents every day.  We have accomplished a great deal together and have put in place the industry's best platform. I am confident that the Company is well positioned for its next phase of growth and development and I look forward to being a part of that in my role as a Board member and consultant," said Bill Sheriff.
