Brian Shanks started with Tabitha in 2019 as the Chief Financial Officer.

Shanks brings over 30 years of extensive experience in finance and business, including the areas of real estate, courier services and franchise investments. He was instrumental in boosting student housing occupancy rates at the University of Nebraska and managed standardized policies and procedures, data metrics and financial reporting for dining, residence life, contracts, payroll, facilities and conference operations. Shanks also provided fiscal oversight of $250 million worth of construction projects including a new dining center and residence hall across the state’s college.

“We are excited about the diverse background Brian brings to our team. His partnership is crucial as we move to the future with a bold plan to expand and innovate for the sake of Seniors, their families and the communities we are blessed to be invited to serve,” shared Tabitha President and CEO Christie Hinrichs. “We are grateful to have him as part of the Tabitha executive team.”
