Baptist Retirement Community is delighted to announce Aaron Hargett as the new executive director of the senior living community. Charlie Wilson, senior vice president of Buckner Retirement Services, made the announcement. Hargett has been with the senior living community since 2007 and was recently promoted from the position of director of independent living. In his new role as executive director, Hargett will be responsible for overseeing the 100-acre community’s operations, administration, programs and strategic planning. He will also manage marketing, community outreach and financial planning. Hargett’s goal is to enrich the lives of the seniors who live in the community or use its services.
“I am thrilled to bring Aaron onto our executive leadership team,” said Wilson. “Over the last 10 years we’ve seen that he is servant-hearted, passion-driven and more than capable of managing such a large community. There’s really no one better for the job.”
Hargett is originally from the area, and he graduated from Angelo State University with a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. He has worked in the health care industry for nearly 20 years, covering a variety of areas including admissions and discharge planning, rehabilitation, home health, hospice, and independent living.
“Baptist Retirement Community offers more senior living options and opportunities for life enrichment than anywhere else in the area, and I feel privileged to lead the community and its team toward continued success,” said Hargett. “The staff and residents here at Baptist Retirement are like family, and I’m grateful to be part of their lives and look forward to continuing our legacy as San Angelo’s leading senior living provider.”
