McKnights Senior Living shared the exciting news that Peter Lutz has joined our team as Chief Information Officer.

“Working at scale and the complexities that come with it are my strengths,” said Lutz. “I was at a point in my career where I was ready to do more than build systems and data, instead looking to change how we deliver health and interact with seniors. While searching for services for my in-laws, I realized there is a strong need in this market to build something exceptional and Lifespark already had a clear strategy built.”

According to Lifespark CEO, Joel Theisen, BSN, RN, Lutz brings a proven track record with deep expertise. That will play a critical role in advancing Lifespark’s health tech footprint to build a solid foundation to move into new markets.  “This is a big win for our company,” Theisen said.

A highly influential national health care player, Lutz is known across the industry for leading complex global application development efforts and consistently delivering on key investments. “We’re excited about his skillset and history leading telephony, tech, and tech ops teams for consumer companies like Target,” added Theisen. “His understanding of the member journey and how tech can create a seamless experience for those we mutually serve is incredibly important to our vision.”
