NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Todd Lampert has been elected to succeed Tom Lewis as chairman of the Board of Directors for Waveny LifeCare Network in New Canaan.
Under Lewis, Lampert served as vice chairman and an active member of Waveny’s board. Tom Ferguson and Kathryn Tohir have been elected board vice chair and secretary, respectively, while John Zaro remains as the board's treasurer.
“A firm commitment to excellence has charted Waveny’s course for 40 years,” Lampert said. “It’s an honor to lead an organization that’s constantly moving forward with confidence, vision and a great sense of purpose.”
Lampert, who joined the Waveny board in 2012, saw several initiatives undertaken by the 5-star rated organization throughout his tenure to date, including the launch of Waveny at Home – Waveny’s home-based companion and homemaker division, the introduction of advanced Wound VAC, IV and respiratory therapies at Waveny Care Center, the creation of expanded couples suites at both The Village and The Inn, collaboration with Staying Put in New Canaan, and a comprehensive rebrand.
An attorney with more than 25 years in law, Lampert brings extensive experience in practice and governance to Waveny’s board. His law practice, Lampert, Toohey & Rucci, has served clients since 1993 with a location on Main Street in New Canaan since 1997, and provides a range of legal services including civil litigation, construction law, residential and commercial real estate, business development, trusts and estates, matrimonial and personal injury law.
A founder of the Bank of New Canaan – now Bankwell — Lampert serves as director and corporate secretary for the bank. He has served as an event chair for Waveny’s annual “Swinging for Seniors” Golf & Tennis fundraiser, and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Stamford Arboretum.
He lives in New Canaan with his wife, Antoinette, and their three children, and is a graduate of the Bridgeport School of Law and the University of Colorado.
“I look forward to leading our strong Board of Directors and working closely with our CEO, Bill Piper and his capable leadership team,” Lampert said. “As we continue to respond to the changing needs and preferences of seniors by diversifying our services and expanding upon our home-based services, we will always continue to put quality first. I am very excited to see what the future holds.”
“At such a critical time in Waveny’s history and healthcare in general, Todd’s leadership style is of vital importance to our organization and its future,” said Bill Piper, Chief Executive Officer of Waveny LifeCare Network. “Healthcare as we know it continues to change and demands that organizations like Waveny evolve with it, so we are very glad to welcome him into his new role at this pivotal time.”
