Brookdale exec takes on chief accounting officer designation

As part of its recent acquisition of rival Emeritus, the leadership team of Brookdale Senior Living has tweaked its executive lineup. Executive Vice President and Treasurer Kristin Ferge has added the chief accounting officer title to her name and taken over the principal accounting officer role from President and CFO Mark Ohlendorf. Ferge has been with Brookdale since mid-2005, when she joined the Brentwood-based company from Alterra Healthcare.
