Ian Shives has been named the executive director for Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove. Mr. Shives brings nearly a decade of senior living experience and leadership to the Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove team.

Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove is one of 35 Morning Pointe senior living and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence communities managed by Morning Pointe Senior Living, a Chattanooga-based senior healthcare services company founded in 1996 by Tennessee healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow.

“Morning Pointe prides itself on selecting the very best leaders to serve our seniors,” said Mr. Vital, president of Morning Pointe Senior Living. “Ian understands what makes a senior living community effective, and I know he and his team will usher in a new tradition of excellence at Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove.”

Mr. Shives obtained his bachelor’s degree in social work from Southern Adventist University in 2010, and served as the director of social services for Life Care Centers of America and the director of operations for Heritage Healthcare Management Services in addition to his most recent work with another national senior living company. His previous experience has equipped him with an understanding of the needs of seniors and their families, making him a natural fit for the role of executive director. Mr. Shives’ leadership will guide the Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove team into a new period of growth, said officials.

“I am honored to be back in Collegedale directing an exemplary leadership team at Morning Pointe of Greenbriar Cove,” said Mr. Shives. “My love for ‘the greatest generation’ fuels my passion for enriching the lives of seniors who call Morning Pointe home.” 

When not at Morning Pointe, Mr. Shives enjoys spending time with his wife, Stacy—an Ooltewah native—and his two daughters. His hobbies include photography and outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, camping, and off-roading.
