Wolff Launches Operations Division for Independent Living Portfolio

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Wolff Company, a Scottsdale-based developer, has unveiled plans to launch a senior living resident experience company.

This spring, the new company, yet to be named, will assume management for all of The Wolff Company’s independent living communities. 

“When we set out to enter the senior living space, we wanted to build physical environments and on-site experiences that redefine the meaning of independent living,” says Tim Wolff, executive vice president at The Wolff Company. “We’re excited about the opportunity to transform the resident experience through innovation, creativity and a focus on providing opportunities for our residents to be connected, engaged and curious.” 

Leading the new company’s team is Niki Leondakis, a veteran of the hospitality and lifestyle industries where she has built award-winning company cultures and brands. She spent more than 20 years with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, including as the company’s president and chief operating officer, and has been a CEO for Equinox Fitness Clubs, Two Roads Hospitality and Commune Hotels and Resorts.

Cory Wolfenbarger will lead the company’s operations, having most recently overseen The Wolff Company’s senior living portfolio. He brings nearly 20 years of experience in the seniors housing and service industries.

Nicole Sinclair will lead talent and culture. She brings over 25 years’ experience as a leader across operations and talent in hospitality, including extensive experience with Starwood Hotels and Resorts, most recently as general manager of Faena Hotel Miami Beach.

Through the transition, The Wolff Company will maintain its partnership with its current property management company, Clearwater Living. Both companies will continue working together to develop new campuses, with Clearwater’s assisted living and memory care communities completing the continuum of care.

The Wolff Company will also continue its longstanding partnership with Sodexo to deliver quality of life to residents through dining, wellness and hospitality services at all locations.
