Evanston-based Mather LifeWays has announced the election of Roger E. Lumpp II as chair of its board of directors.

Lumpp succeeds Jeff Reed, who served as board chair of the not-for-profit operator of continuing care retirement communities since 2006.

“Mr. Lumpp’s executive experience, leadership, and passion for achieving Mather LifeWays mission will be key in furthering our innovative practices and successes in the areas of research, senior living residences, and community outreach.” Mary Leary, president and CEO of Mather LifeWays said in a news release.

Lumpp joined Mather LifeWays board in 2007.  He earned his bachelor’s degree from Wabash College and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Michigan.

A certified public accountant, Lumpp is a director with KPMG, an international audit, tax and advisory services firm.  He has over 20 years of executive-level experience in the financial services industry with two publicly held insurance-centered corporations.

Prior to joining KPMG, Mr. Lumpp was managing director at BearingPoint and a partner with Arthur Anderson’s business consulting group.  He currently serves on the board of trustees of Seabury Western Theological Seminary and the board of directors of Skokie Country Club.

“Today, the concept of aging well is of increasing interest and importance to people around the world. It is exciting to be part of an organization that strives to learn about and share the processes and practices of aging well. I am honored to be a member of the team,” Lumpp said.
