Minneapolis’ New Perspective Senior Living hires new COO

Minneapolis-based New Perspective Senior Living has hired former Brookdale executive Chris Hyatt as partner, investor and chief operating officer. In this new position, Hyatt will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organization.
