Shell Point Retirement Community’s board of directors has appointed Martin Schappell as president, following the November retirement of Peter Dys, who served as president for the past 31 years.
“After a rigorous and skillful search, the Board found an ideal candidate close to home and unanimously endorsed Martin for the role of president. He brings a strong faith base, professionalism, knowledge, and strategic leadership skills to guide Shell Point, as the community focuses on the expansion of its services and campus,” said Dr. Mark O’Farrell, Chair of the Board. “There is no doubt that this is the man sent by God to lead this community.”
Schappell is well acquainted with the nonprofit’s mission and core values, culture, and operations after more than eight years of service as a Shell Point board member, and serving as executive vice president throughout the past year. In his new executive role, Schappell will oversee every aspect of the organization, including healthcare, residential life, marketing, business operations, and employee relations.
