Erickson Senior Living Promotes Kristen Compton to Executive Director of Cedar Crest

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J. — Erickson Senior Living has named Kristen Compton as executive director of Cedar Crest, a seniors housing community in the North Jersey municipality of Pompton Plains.

“Kristen has been serving as Cedar Crest’s associate executive director since 2017 and has proven herself to be a strong and dedicated leader,” says John Mann, Erickson Senior Living’s vice president of regional operations.

Compton’s accomplishments at Cedar Crest include facilitating many of the community’s repositioning projects, driving operations and helping the community achieve both resident satisfaction and employee engagement.

Before joining the Cedar Crest leadership team, Compton held administrator positions at CareOne and Genesis Healthcare, helping both organizations achieve five-star ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Compton holds a bachelor’s degree in education from Towson University in Maryland and a master’s degree in theology and healing science from New Mexico Theological Seminary in Santa Fe.

Compton replaces Todd DeLaney, who recently transitioned to a new role as executive director of Avery Point, a new Erickson Senior Living community in Short Pump, Va., scheduled to open in the fall.
