Philip Jean has been the CEO of Piper Shores since May 2022, and has over 25 years of experience in health care and senior living administration. 

“I’ve spent my career focusing on building vibrant, inclusive retirement communities and I’m looking forward to contributing those leadership skills to the ACHCA,” Jean said.

Before joining Piper Shores as CEO in June 2022, Jean was the executive director at Seabrook Village in New Jersey. He was responsible for providing the vision and strategy for the continuing care retirement community, leading more than 1,300 residents and 700 employees. 

He has been a licensed nursing care administrator since 1996 and is also a fellow of the American College of Health Care Administrators. In addition to other board appointments and volunteer positions, Jean is an exam writer and subject matter expert for the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator board test. 

Jean was raised in Lewiston, attended high school at St. Dominic’s Academy, and later earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Maine. He then went to Husson University in Bangor, where he earned an MBA with a concentration in health care management. 

Built in 2001, Piper Shores is on 138 acres of oceanfront property between Higgins Beach and Prouts Neck in Scarborough. The facility includes the $14 million Holbrook Memory Care and Assisted Living apartment complex completed in 2017.

Based in Washington, D.C., the ACHCA is a nonprofit association for health care administrators that focuses on leadership and excellence in post-acute and aging services care across the spectrum of health care services. The organization provides professional certification, career development opportunities, ongoing education and networking. There are almost two dozen state chapters, including one in Maine.
