Ryan Bartell Takes on New Leadership Position as Senior Sales Director at Juniper Communities
BLOOMFIELD, NJ–Juniper Communities announces the appointment of Ryan Bartell to the new position of Senior Sales Director on its leadership team. Juniper’s decision to create the position came out of a realization that while they had a concentrated training track for marketing, they did not put the same focus into their sales training, coaching and mentoring.
“This position will fill that gap,” said Cindy Longfellow, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Juniper Communities. “Ryan will be responsible for our Director of Community Relations (DCR) on-boarding, as well as mentoring, coaching, and even ad hoc on-site sales support when needed.”
“At Applewood Place and Lakewood Reserve, I had the opportunity as a DCR to assist families in the difficult transition of relocating their loved one. I’ve gained insight into the emotional pull this has on families and how we can better serve our seniors in the years to come,” said Bartell. “In this role, I will support community sales and marketing efforts, and help deliver the Juniper message across all platforms.”
Cindy Longfellow praised Bartell’s selection for the role, “Juniper was fortunate to adopt Ryan Bartell as part of a seniors housing acquisition in the Denver market. Ryan came to us with a wealth of sales experience—both with respect to the sales process and sales support. He has grown even further as part of the Juniper team for the past nearly two years. Ryan is a consummate professional who brings a high level of energy and integrity to all his endeavors. We are thrilled to have him in this new role and anticipate that Ryan will be a catalyst for our further success!”
Bartell has just celebrated his twelfth year working in seniors housing where he has held positions as caregiver, med-tech, resident concierge, administrative assistant, sales associate, and Director of Community Relations. He has always enjoyed being around older adults and the inspiration and sage advice the residents give. He looks forward to continuing his career in the seniors housing industry which is poised for continued growth in the coming years.
Bartell is a 4th generation Colorado native with a very close family. He loves spending time with them and loves to travel.
