Smith announced the rebranding in his first quarterly earnings call as CEO. He succeeds Bill Sheriff. Smith joined Brookdale in 2006, serving as executive vice president and general counsel.

Improving marketing will be one of Smith's priorities. Rebranding details are still to come, but the goal is to differentiate Brookdale and broaden its market, he said.
