🏅 How a Career in Senior Care Chose ERS's Ken Paley

Cincinnatian Ken Paley and his dog Marley, a survivor of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana.

 Ken Paley didn’t seek out a career in senior care. A career in senior care sought out him.

Around 2007, while he was still a principal with The Angus Group, an executive recruiting firm, he received a call from his sister.
