CTRE

The Board of Directors of CareTrust REIT, Inc. (NYSE:CTRE) announced today the appointment of James Callister as Chief Investment Officer, to be effective as of December 31, 2022. Mr. Callister will succeed Mark Lamb, who will be leaving the company after a transition period to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities. Mr. Callister currently serves as CareTrust’s Executive Vice President.

“On behalf of the Board and all of us at CareTrust, I express our admiration and gratitude for the tremendous impact Mark has had on building the company since the beginning,” said Chief Executive Officer, Dave Sedgwick. “Mark has always been a true partner and friend and we wish him continued success in the future.”

“While I am excited for the next chapter of my career, this was nonetheless a very difficult decision given how much CareTrust means to me,” Mr. Lamb said. “I am proud of what we have accomplished and am highly confident in James and the team’s growth prospects going forward. I am pleased to leave the team in very capable hands.”

Accepting the appointment, Mr. Callister said, “I am deeply honored by this opportunity to lead the exceptionally high caliber investment professionals at CareTrust and build on the strong track record of growth.” He continued, “We are driven each day by our mission to match great operators with great opportunities and, as we head into 2023, we are excited to both expand existing relationships and invest in new ones.”

Mr. Sedgwick said, “We are fortunate that James is ready, willing, and able to take the baton and continue the growth story at CareTrust. James has been instrumental in every transaction in the company’s history and has earned for himself and for CareTrust the reputation of a practical, honest, and creative transactional partner.”
