Dear Families,

My name is Josh Krull, and I have had the privilege of working in the senior living industry for 26 years. My journey began in high school, serving as a Certified Nursing Assistant in my hometown of Buffalo, New York, where I developed a deep love for helping older people live better.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with many remarkable people across the country. My career includes 14 years in leadership at Atria Senior Living, one of the largest senior living management companies in North America. I served as Executive Director for communities in New York and California, and later as Regional Vice President in Southern California, where I managed 19 communities and achieved industry-leading 90+% satisfaction scores.

Throughout my career, I oversaw functional operations including Culinary, Care, Resident Engagement, Maintenance, and Memory Care. Most recently, I served as CEO of Elegance Living, guiding the company through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and spearheading new developments in Northern California. I also modernized their operations platform to enhance services for residents and families and support the continued growth of the company.

I currently reside in Arlington, Virginia, where I enjoy playing volleyball and cheering for my hometown Buffalo Bills. 

My steadfast commitment to every Artis family is to create an environment where our residents enjoy safer, more connected lives, our associates are empowered to serve with purpose and joy – and where we all Honor Yesterday & Celebrate Today. Thank you for trusting the Artis team with the care of your loved one.

Josh Krull
CEO, Artis Senior Living
