(Grand Forks, N.D.) Edgewood Management Group celebrates the fourth graduate, Matthew Thompson, from its Edgewood Senior Living Executive Director in Training Program. Matthew was recently named the new Assistant Executive Director of Edgewood Vista in Mandan, ND. 

The Executive Director in Training Program is an intensive educational experience designed specifically to provide individuals with a broad base of operational knowledge and skills for leadership as a licensed Executive Director in an Edgewood Assisted Living and Memory Care community. The program exemplifies and ensures Edgewood’s commitment to the Standards of Excellence and Core Cultural Values for the best possible outcomes in terms of quality and value for our customers and financial success for our investors. 

The goal of this program is to provide a guide for educational, practical and clinical experiences that will help individuals develop identifiable competencies and grow as a professional utilizing his or her unique style of leadership as an Executive Director. 

“We are thrilled to continue developing strong internal candidates through Edgewood’s Executive Director in Training program. Matthew will fill a needed role in our company, and as a proven leader, he will ensure Edgewood continues providing the highest-quality services, care and accommodations,” says Russell G. Kubik, President of Edgewood Management Group. 

Matthew is a native of Lead, South Dakota, and is a graduate of Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with an emphasis in Creative Writing and a minor in Communication Studies. Matthew’s strong relationship with his grandparents fostered an appreciation for the senior population and the wisdom they possess. This appreciation, combined with a passion and desire to serve the community, led Matthew to pursue a career in which he can help ensure our seniors receive compassionate, quality care.

Matthew is thankful to have been provided the opportunity to expand his knowledge base and skills through the Edgewood Executive Director in Training Program and is excited to join the Edgewood Vista Mandan team in April. 

In his off time, Matthew enjoys bicycling, running, exercising, fishing, hunting and anything outdoors.
