Dan Davis

Presbyterian Senior Living, a not-for-profit provider of senior and retirement care services has promoted Dan Davis to president and CEO.

Davis will fill the position previously held by James Bernardo, as Bernardo plans to retire at the end of the year. Davis has been with Dillsburg, PA-based PSL for 21 years and has more than 30 years of aging services leadership experience. 

Most recently, Davis was senior vice president and COO. He now becomes the 90-year-old organization’s fifth president. He was selected after a nationwide search conducted by global executive recruitment firm WittKiefer.

 Davis will assume his new role Nov. 1, PSL announced in early September.

“We concluded his deep knowledge of senior living services, and willingness to try new product lines to better meet the expectations of our many stakeholders ensures he is the best candidate to drive forward the PSL strategic plan,” said Anne Drennan, chair of the PSL Board of Trustees. “Dan has a sound record of encouraging our work force to be creative in their respective roles.”

Davis has been a licensed nursing home administrator since 1993. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Oklahoma City University and a master’s degree in organizational development and leadership from Shippensburg University.

Davis also has served on the Board of Directors for LeadingAge PA and Forgotten Voices International.
