LENEXA, Kan. — Lakeview Village, an independently owned, nonprofit continuing care retirement community in the Kansas City suburb of Lenexa, has promoted Robbie Clausen from chief financial officer to CEO.
Clausen replaces Jamie Frazier, who is retiring after 10 years in the position. During Frazier’s tenure, the community survived the Great Recession and spent $60.5 million on upgrades and capital projects, including an expansion.
Clausen has spent his entire career working in the seniors housing industry. After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with degrees in accounting and computer science, he began working as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for his father, Bob Clausen, who owned and operated nursing homes and assisted living facilities, as well as home health, therapy, pharmacy and construction companies.
Lakeview Village also hired Heath Leuck as its new CFO. Leuck graduated from the University of Kansas with degrees in accounting and business administration. His work experience as a CPA includes BKD (formerly known as Baird, Kurtz and Dobson), Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, and CBIZ MHM financial services and business consulting company. For the last seven years, Leuck served as director of finance at John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit, Mo.
