Scott R. Summy - Willow Valley Living, Chief Human Resources Officer
Scott Summy has spent most of his working life at Willow Valley, where he recently celebrated his 41 year anniversary. His career began at the Willow Valley Inn and Resort, where he learned the art of hospitality from the Thomas family and became passionate about customer service. After joining Willow Valley Communities in 1984 with the opening of Willow Valley Manor, Scott served as the Manager of Dining Services.
The continued growth of Willow Valley Communities provided Scott the opportunity to expand his responsibilities and serve as Executive Director for Willow Valley Communities’ Manor Campus for 13 years. This experience gave him a greater appreciation for working directly with Residents and their families, as they navigate changing health needs and was beneficial in his subsequent role as Director of Business Development, in which he expanded our Mission to Home and Community Based Services and led pursuits of new business opportunities to better serve our customers.
In his current role as Chief Human Resources Officer, Scott leads the team responsible for attracting and retaining the talent – at all levels – that allows Willow Valley Communities to deliver on its mission.
Scott currently serves on the Board of Directors for LeadingAge PA, the state association for not-for-profit retirement communities. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Lancaster Area Senior Services, the Lancaster County Career and Technology Foundation, and the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce Executive Forum for Aging Services Providers.
