Drew Shaffer has been appointed the executive director of The Springs at The Waterfront, a 250-unit senior living community with a contemporary Northwest aesthetic that is set to open at The Waterfront Vancouver in 2024. As executive director, Shaffer will assemble the community team and direct all aspects of community operations, including resident experience, operational performance, and culture-building for the team.
“The Springs at The Waterfront is an exceptional community that requires a skilled executive director,” said Brenda Connelly, president of The Springs Living. “Drew was a natural choice to lead this community, given his breadth of senior living experience in Clark County. As a leader, he builds teams that stay together which drives quality experiences for both residents and staff.”
Shaffer has 17 years in senior housing leadership in Clark County. Most of that time was spent as an executive director and regional director of operations for The Quarry Senior Living and as executive director and administrator at Glenwood Place Senior Living. He has an associate degree in business administration from Lower Columbia College and an assisted living administrator license from the state of Washington.
