Sunrise Senior Living Inc. on Monday said it will terminate the employment of Daniel Schwartz, senior vice president of North American Operations, effective May 31, 2010.

The move is a part of Sunrise's continuing efforts to curb corporate spending, according to the international senior living provider. In place of Schwartz, community operations will report directly to CEO Mark Ordan, and Senior Vice Presidents of Operations Laura McDuffie and Ron Jeanneault.

"We are all grateful for Daniel's nearly 15 years of service to Sunrise and the significant contributions he has made in championing the quality of life of thousands of residents and the team members who serve them," Ordan said in a statement.
