DALLAS — Buckner Retirement Services, a Dallas-based operator, has promoted Aaron Hargett to the role of senior executive director.
Hargett will continue to serve as executive director of Baptist Retirement Community, a Buckner senior living community in San Angelo, Texas, while also supporting the executive directors of five additional Buckner communities.
Hargett’s new role will also involve participating in the strategic growth of Buckner, providing input in organizational budget planning and assisting with special projects.
Hargett joined the Baptist Retirement Community senior leadership team in 2007. Prior to becoming the executive director in 2017, he served as Baptist Retirement Community’s home health and hospice administrator and director of independent living.
Hargett graduated from Angelo State University with a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He has worked in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years, and LeadingAge Texas recently named him the network representative for the West Texas network.
Hargett takes over the role of senior executive director from Abraham Mathew, who was promoted earlier in the year to the role of director of operations for Buckner Retirement Services. Hargett will report to Mathew.
