Wendy McGee, chief executive officer of Powell Property Management, has announced her retirement in early December. A 16-year veteran with Powell, a seniors housing management company, McGee will be transferring her responsibilities to Jan Wieder, Powell’s new president of operations.

In announcing her retirement, McGee said, “I am sad to say goodbye to my colleagues at Powell Property Management and at our senior facilities, Village Green Retirement in Federal Way and Daystar Retirement Village in west Seattle, but I am pleased that Jan will be stepping into my shoes. Her depth of experience will allow PPM to continue to provide exemplary service to our senior residents as well as to the residents of the apartment communities under our care.”

In her time at Powell Property Management, McGee acted as controller, director of operations and chief executive officer.

Board Director and majority stockholder Monte Powell said, “Over a decade ago, I was looking to step back from day to day operations. Wendy really stepped up to the plate and assumed the mantle of leadership. Under her expert hand, PPM saw superb growth and profitability. Her daily contributions have meant a great deal to me and our family. Her presence will be sorely missed. After devoting so much time to her work, her retirement is well deserved and will finally allow her to spend more time with her family and working on her golf game!”

Wieder, most recently executive director of Narrows Glen, a 238-unit senior facility in Tacoma, has been actively involved in senior housing since 1999, including acting as regional director for Bonaventure Senior Housing. In this role, she was responsible for the operations of 10 to 12 senior communities with more than 1,000 residents and 900 employees.

“I’m excited to become the latest member of the PPM team,” Wieder said. “Wendy and her crew have done an excellent job, and I’m looking forward to grabbing the baton and running the next leg of the race.”
