Denver, Colo., May 18, 2021 – Essex Communities welcomes Camille Burke to the leadership team as Vice President and Chief Development Officer. Burke has more than 20 years of experience in the senior housing industry, including almost 17 years at Christian Living Communities, where she recently ended her tenure as Interim Chief Executive Officer.

In her role with Essex, Burke will be responsible for overseeing community operations and helping lead Essex’s responsible growth initiatives through acquisitions, new development, property management, and consulting for the active adult and independent living segments of the 55+ housing market.

“I have profound passion and energy for this industry, so this new role with Essex that focuses on growth is such a perfect fit,” said Burke. “I am looking forward to building on all the successes Essex has seen and working with its communities, residents, and industry partners to see where we can go from here.”

“Camille is an extraordinarily talented individual whose diverse skill set will be utilized across the spectrum of services we offer,” said Frankie Pane, Essex Communities President and COO. “We look forward to Camille offering our communities her impressive operational knowledge and skills, as well as her being heavily involved in the design of new communities and leading our soon-to-be-announced consulting services platform.”
