Honoring One Of Its Own

Scheper Ridge marks the first ERS community in Northern Kentucky, 30th for the company.

Construction to begin in early 2020 for 48 single- and two-bedroom suites off U.S. 42.

Suburban, wooded site straddles booming Boone County region near Union.

Named after recently retired ERS exec Paul Scheper, longtime CFO who was essential to ERS growth.

[FLORENCE, Kentucky ~ March 8, 2019] Milestones abound as regional powerhouse ERS (Episcopal Retirement Services) unveils plans for Scheper Ridge, a new, $9.1 million Affordable Living by ERS community in the heart of Florence, offering 48 new homes for low-income seniors.

ERS is proud to announce our 30th retirement community, and to welcome Scheper Ridge as an official member of the ERS family,” said ERS President and CEO Laura Lamb.

And what an opportunity to further the mission of ERS, than through the legacy of Paul Scheper, whose skills, intelligence and experience have helped guide ERS for almost four decades along this incredible journey.”

Paul Scheper is a beloved and recently retired ERS executive who devoted 36 years to ERS, its seniors and the families served by ERS.

Scheper was an instrumental and inspired leader, essential to the recent growth and expansion of ERS, which has blossomed from a single Cincinnati-area retirement community to a regional network.

ERS is now comprised of 27 Affordable Living for Seniors by ERS communities and three premium retirement communities such as Deupree House and Marjorie P. Lee Retirement Community in Hyde Park (Cincinnati) and Episcopal Church Home (Louisville).

By the numbers, Scheper Ridge represents a momentous occasion for ERS, active throughout Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana:

  • the third new ERS community in Kentucky, and the first in Northern Kentucky;
  • the 27th #AffordableLiving for Seniors (ALS) community by ERS;
  • the first ALS community by ERS since Mr. Scheper retired last year.

Scheper Ridge will be developed by a partnership between ALS by ERS and The Model Group. The architect is ATA-Beilharz. The community is designed for 29 single-bedroom homes and 19 two-bedroom suites.

At Scheper Ridge, ERS is accompanied by many of its traditional partners and professional colleagues, such as Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH), the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB), Kentucky Housing Corp., Huntington Bank, and The Model Group.

Scheper Ridge is being financed by $748,800 in 2019 LIHTC tax credits from the New Supply Urban Pool, which will result in annual allocations for 10 years. Kentucky Housing Corp. awarded $300,000 in Affordable Housing Trust funds and $200,000 in HOME Funds. The FHLB provided a $749,999 grant, and an additional grant was provided by the Lutheran Benevolent Society.

Thomas J. Craig of Cincinnati, resident of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) at the Marjorie P. Lee Retirement Community, “adjusted” his birth certificate – with full knowledge of his parents – to enlist in the U.S. navy at the age of 16, one year before federal law permitted voluntarily joining the U.S. Armed Forces (17). “A lot of volunteers did that, and we were forgiven by the Navy after the war,” says Mr. Craig. Born and raised in NYC, Craig was sent to Boot Camp in Providence, R.I. From there, he was sent to technical training and Air Gunners School in jacksonville, Fla., after which he was sent to the naval air station in Fort Lauderdale. Craig was a radio operator and tail gunner, a U.S. Navy Airman, who became part of Torpedo Squadron 44, flying a Grumman Avenger Torpedo Bomber. Craig was based on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Langley near fleet anchorage at Ulithi in the Caroline Islands. He flew 35 missions off the carrier in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, and participated in the Battle of Okinawa. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Air Medals. Mr. Craig worked for 28 years in Cincinnati television at WLWT-TV, the local NBC affiliate in The Queen City.

EPISCOPAL RETIREMENT SERVICES ANNOUNCES LAURA LAMB AS NEW CEO

After an extensive national search, ERS promoted from within their own ranks

[Cincinnati, Ohio, October 25, 2016] Episcopal Retirement Services announced today that their Executive Vice President (EVP), Laura Lamb, will succeed Doug Spitler as the organization’s new President and CEO.

Lamb, 47, has been with the company for 22 years and prior to her appointment last year as EVP she held the position of vice president of housing and healthcare.

ERS Board Chair, Robin Smith, made the announcement at a special meeting of the ERS Leadership Team.

Laura has been a key player in the success of ERS over the past several years,” Smith said,

Among other important responsibilities, she heads up the Strategic Planning Committee and the Master Planning Committee.

In addition to her work ethic, demonstrated record of success, and deep knowledge of our company and our industry, she is the embodiment of our person-centered culture every day, and this was a critical factor in our decision,” said Smith.

The ERS Board of Directors has been working diligently since May of 2015 to identify and appoint ERS’ next CEO to succeed Doug Spitler who will be retiring at the end of this year after 34 years with ERS.

Executive search firm, Witt Kieffer, was hired to conduct a national search for the best possible candidate and they reported to a specially formed committee made up of board members and Director of Organizational Development and Human Resources, Joan Wetzel.

After a rigorous screening and interview process which included ERS residents and staff members from all levels of the organization, it became clear that Laura was the most qualified candidate to lead ERS to continued growth and success in the future,” Smith said.

Current CEO Doug Spitler added, “I am thrilled about Laura’s appointment. For over 2 decades she has been an integral part of the planning and execution of our strategic goals. She is both hands-on and high energy. No one knows this organization better and she has earned the respect and admiration of her colleagues both locally and nationally.”

Lamb commented, “I am both excited and honored to be chosen by our Board to lead this incredible organization, especially during a time of unprecedented change and growth in our industry.

We have an amazing team at ERS consisting of our residents, employees, board of directors and business partners, and with their help I am looking forward to creating our bright future together.”
