Pines Village employee profile: Laurie Mullet CEO
Laurie Mullet refuses to accept all the praise for what Pines Village Retirement Communities has accomplished during her tenure as chief executive officer. Credit, she emphasizes, must be given to members of her board, her management team and, most importantly, the community.
Seated at a medium-sized table in her office, Mullet shares a story that reiterates her point.
In October 2007, Pines Village initiated a five-month “Tour of Duty” campaign to take World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington, D.C., for four days, each with one guest and all expenses paid. The effort raised $165,000. Donations poured in. In fact, on the campaign's last day, a woman stopped by Pines Village to ask how much money the campaign needed to reach its goal. Learning it was $10,000, she wrote a check for that amount.
The Hazel Hannell Collection was unveiled at Pines Village on March 20, 2011. This permanent gallery of legendary Porter County artist Hazel Hannell is open to the public Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
