Structured for Success

Today, previous VMS Chief Operating Officer Siobhan Foster assumed the position of CEO/General Manager upon Jeff Parker’s retirement on February 3. As VMS moves forward, Foster expressed her excitement at the opportunity to lead the company.

“One of my main goals is to strive every day to inspire the organization and the Village community with a positive, service- and results-oriented approach,” says Foster. “Further, I am eager to guide VMS’ talented team as we work to enhance the customer experience and quality of Village life for all who live here. While this is no small endeavor, VMS’ exceptional senior management will set the example and focus team efforts on our simple yet profound guiding force—a commitment to excellence and a dedication to service. My tenure as VMS’ COO has earned me a reputation of a “woman of action” among directors from GRF, Third, United and VMS boards, and I, along with the entire VMS team, am poised to take customer care and service delivery to greater levels.”
