President & CEO,

Lutheran Homes Society

Rick Marshall’s role as CEO is to provide visionary leadership to the organization, to facilitate growth and innovation.

He began serving as President/CEO of Lutheran Homes Society (LHS) on February 1.  He comes to LHS from Christian Care Communities, Inc. in Louisville, Kentucky, that state’s largest non-profit provider of affordable housing and long-term care and home health services for older adults. He has over 20 years experience in healthcare finance and operations.

Mr. Marshall has a master’s degree in entrepreneurship from the University of Louisville, where he graduated with distinction. His bachelor’s degree is in accounting from the University of Kentucky, in Lexington, where he graduated with high distinction and departmental honors.

My inspiration comes from: The nurse aides and other hands-on caregivers who provide care and services to the residents, patients, and clients of Lutheran Homes Society. While rewarding, their work is physically demanding and emotionally taxing.  They are the heart and soul of our organization and are true servants. They touch the lives of thousands each day and provide encouragement, healing, and hope.

Proudest accomplishment: I love being a father. After 23 years of marriage without children, my wife and I were blessed with adopted twins who are now 11 months old. They are a reminder of God’s goodness and answers to prayer.

Something most people don’t know about me: I was a student manager for the University of Kentucky basketball team while in college.

Words I live by: The words of Scripture recorded in Philippians 4:13 are a source of real encouragement for me: “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” It is a reminder of God’s power and the fact that I don’t have to face difficult times on my own.

Grilled Rack of Lamb with Demi-Glace Butter I made this Food and Wine recipe recently as it stood out in a recent issue of the magazine and certainly caught the attention of my lamb-loving Greek husband. Overall, it was a hit, but I will change a few of the instructions next time. A rack of
