Brookdale CEO Named to “2022 Most Admired CEOs” List

Nashville Business Journal honors Lucinda “Cindy” Baier in this year’s class of winners

Brookdale Senior Living CEO Lucinda (“Cindy”) Baier has been named to the Nashville Business Journal’s 2022 list of Most Admired CEOs. This is the third time Baier has been included on the list.

To assemble this prominent list of area CEOs, nominations are made by the public. From there, nominees are grouped into categories based on company size and type and then voted on by their peers. The highest-scored CEOs make the list of honorees.

“I am honored to receive this recognition,” said Baier. “This is truly a recognition of our dedicated and diligent associates across the country who believe in and live out our mission every day.”

Baier has shared how the experience of growing up on a farm in central Illinois helped build the foundation of her work in senior living. At a relatively young age, she learned firsthand what it meant to be a caregiver. She cared for her both her mother and grandfather while she was still in school. That early experience solidified her passion to help seniors and their families at such an important time in their lives.
