** Carol Hubbard becomes CEO of Community Eldercare of San Diego/St. Paul’s PACE & Todd Kaprielian named CEO of St. Paul’s Foundation **
San Diego, Calif. (Feb. 28, 2022) – St. St. Paul’s Senior Services (SPSS) announces the promotion of two executive team members to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) positions. Carol Hubbard is named the new CEO of Community Eldercare of San Diego (CESD), which encompasses St. Paul’s PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), a program that cares for San Diego’s most frail and low-income seniors; and Todd Kaprielian is appointed CEO of St. Paul’s Foundation, the charitable arm of St. Paul’s, which raises vital funds for the San Diego non-profit.
As CEO of CESD, Hubbard, a resident of East County, will incorporate services and programs that are community-based (non-residential), including St. Paul’s PACE, overseeing quality of programming and health plan responsibilities. She will also work closely with state, federal, and local regulators.
“As St. Paul’s Board Chair, I am delighted to offer this promotion to such a deserving member of our leadership team,” said Patrick Edd, St. Paul’s Board Chair. “Not only has Carol demonstrated unwavering commitment to the St. Paul’s mission, but she has done it while navigating the rough terrain of a worldwide pandemic. St. Paul’s values her leadership and expertise, and we look forward to her serving St. Paul’s PACE as the Chief Executive Officer.”
When Hubbard started as a Center Director in 2008, St. Paul’s had 35 PACE participants. After transitioning to Executive Director in 2010, she worked closely with leadership to grow the program to over 1,200 participants to date. St. Paul’s has added two new centers in San Diego County, a satellite clinic in Encinitas, and most recently, a mobile “roving” clinic. Through partnerships with supportive housing developers, St. Paul’s has helped to end homelessness for over 300 formerly unhoused seniors living on the street or in temporary housing.
“We have made progress by enhancing our behavioral health services and will soon have our first Wellness Center for our PACE participants,” said Hubbard. “I am so fortunate that we have a solid and seasoned PACE leadership team to oversee our growing program and maintain our top-notch quality services.”
As the Foundation’s newest CEO, Kaprielian, of Rancho Peñasquitos, will oversee all operations of the charitable arm of the organization. To date, he has led several successful capital campaigns, resulting in the opening of the St. Paul’s PACE centers, the purchase of the roving clinic, and major improvements to existing residential communities, including the upcoming renovation to the 60-year-old St. Paul’s Manor, a $14 million renovation.
“I am so pleased that Mr. Kaprielian has been promoted to CEO of the Foundation,” said Philip A. Greiner, DNSc, RN, Professor Emeritus, San Diego State University, St. Paul’s Foundation Board Chair. “Under his leadership, the Foundation has continued to support the needs of St. Paul’s Senior Services, providing needed funding for special projects, and guaranteeing that donated funds honor the wishes of those donors. He has the skill and passion to continue the work of the Foundation as St. Paul’s Senior Services moves forward with new leadership.”
Kaprielian has worked at St. Paul’s since October of 2004. At the time, the Foundation was amid Phase II of their $5 million capital campaign to bring the first PACE program to San Diego. In June 2007, he was promoted to Executive Director and managed Phase III of the campaign to completion. St. Paul’s has grown considerably in the following years and so too its fundraising needs, which have included renovations to multiple communities, additional PACE sites, and numerous capital improvement projects.
His community involvement includes serving on the board of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, past President of the Downtown Lions Club, and past President of SmoothTalkers Toastmasters Club.
