EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
Scott Nield
President & Chief Executive Officer

Scott is a deeply passionate senior living and hospitality executive who looks for innovative platforms and programming to delight his residents. Scott is a servant leader. He believes in living a life of service and purpose. Service has to benefit another. He feels his purpose in life is to ensure people (especially seniors) know they are loved, valued and that they are hugely important. Ultimately, great leadership is great fellowship. He sees senior living as a wonderful platform to fulfill this mission.

Return on Experience (ROE) needs to be the cornerstone of success within the senior living world. Happy residents who see multiple points of value in their residency is a must.

Edutainment is at the forefront of all we do at Montereau. We delight through educating and entertaining our resident family with continuous growth in all aspects of life. Social, intellectual, physical and spiritual in a bespoke setting.

Scott’s desire is to serve and grow others through professional mentorship as well as sharing his 25 years of hospitality and senior living experiences with learners in business and in life, dovetailed with providing leadership development at Montereau. His goal is to make Montereau known as an industry innovator that cultivates engaging lifestyles, while inspiring personal growth, autonomy and independence, healthy aging and a sense of purpose for residents and beyond.
