American Senior Communities this week announced that CEO Donna Kelsey, in collaboration with the ASC board, has appointed Steve Van Camp to succeed her effective June 1.

Van Camp is currently the Indiana provider’s chief financial officer.

Kelsey, a 2023 McKnight’s Women of Distinction Hall of Honor recipient, has headed the company for seven years. She will remain transition to a senior advisor, a role in which she will focus on leadership development and government advocacy for the senior care profession.

“Donna has poured everything she has into making our organization successful, during a very challenging time in health care,” Van Camp said in a company announcement. “She has championed some of the most effective initiatives our company has ever implemented, and we offer her our most profound gratitude for all she has done and will continue to do as Senior Advisor.”

Van Camp has served as CFO for nearly five years and has more than 30 years of experience in operations and finance. Prior to joining ASC, he was CFO of Consulate Health Care based in Atlanta, the largest operator of skilled nursing facilities in Florida.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Manchester University and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame. He is a CPA who began his career at Ernst & Young.

With Van Camp transitioning to CEO, Mark Dice will step into the CFO role. Dice, also a CPA, has been an ASC finance leader for more than seven years.

He was a former audit manager at Ernst & Young and earned his bachelors degree in accounting from Ball State University.
