Our Executive Directors delight in the opportunity to share their considerable gifts and talents as they serve their communities with competent and compassionate leadership.
Hattie Wagner was appointed President/CEO by the Board of Trustees of Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky in November of 2013. Having been with the company since 1999, Hattie first served as Director of Pastoral Care of the Presbyterian Homes of Louisville community. In 2007, she moved to the corporate office to become Vice-President of Mission and was eventually asked to assume responsibilities as Chief Operating Officer. Ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in 1985, Hattie earned her Doctor of Ministry degree from Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and acknowledges that her continuing service to the ministry of Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky is a source of satisfaction and joy.
Her committed leadership is bolstered by her loyalty to and passion for its mission to serve with compassion, while building meaningful community for residents and employees. Hattie’s vision is to cultivate an organization with soul that contributes to an expansive sense of community, offering kindness and hospitality to all who live, work or visit a Presbyterian Homes community.
Vice President Strategic Development/Interim Executive Director of Louisville Campus
Craig Jennings moved to the role of Vice-President of Operations and Strategic Development in January of 2013, while having served the Presbyterian Homes of Louisville community as Executive Director since 2011. His considerable experience in leadership in the long term care and home health care industries made him a perfect candidate to add depth to the organization overseeing operations and developing new services. Craig has worked in both for profit and not for profit companies, at the State level, and most recently, operated a home health agency. He began his career as a Licensed Practical Nurse.
The decision to return to long term care for Craig was “really a matter of waiting for the right opportunity.” He states that the most exciting aspect of being part of the Presbyterian Homes community is the opportunity “to be a part of a well respected organization that is truly dedicated to its mission. That dedication was obvious to me from my first introduction.”
Craig earned a Bachelors in Business Administration from McKendree College and a Masters in Health Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University.
