Fox Run Leadership Team
 

 
Bill Wiodarczyk William “Bill” Wlodarczyk
CPA, Chief Executive Officer

“ Previously the Fox Run Chief Financial Officer, my professional focus was to procure a sound business plan with an emphasis on open communication. My current philosophy has not changed much, just broadened now that I have become the Chief Executive Officer. Fox Run is an architecturally stunning facility with state of the art amenities, and a beautiful 53 acre campus to call home. However, what makes Fox Run shine is its community members! Fox Run community members embrace the attitude of “Live Life” and I witness this on a daily basis. Consistent with Fox Run’s Mission Statement “…an exceptional living option where seniors may age with grace and dignity,” you have my word that I will see this through. As I previously mentioned, my door is always open; so please feel free to reach out to me.’ “

Mr. Wlodarczyk holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Canisius College and a Masters of Business Administration from The University of Buffalo School of Management. He also holds his Certified Public Accountantcy license.

Matthew J. Lawless
Director of Facilities & Maintenance

Formerly a small business owner myself, working with homeowners and builders, I understand that clear communication is imperative. With over 20 years of construction experience, Fox Run allows me to utilize my knowledge, previous work experience, and education to contribute to an established community, that promotes a team centered work environment.

I am also comfortable knowing that my hardworking and family oriented background encompasses the Fox Run Mission Statement’s Values & Responsibility, in that “We are accountable for our individual performance and the achievement of the organization’s quality, and financial goals.”  The Fox Run campus as a whole, is equally important as the community members themselves.  I look forward to maintaining the high standards of this premier continuing care retirement community in the Southtowns, and taking this community into its future.
Mr. Lawless earned his Bachelors of Arts in Management, from Canisius College of Buffalo, NY.

Mary Watts Wellington, MS, LMHC
Director of Resident Services


In January of 2014, I was promoted from Fox Run Resident Liaison to the Director of Resident Services at Fox Run Orchard Park.  Having had the opportunity to meet all of the Residents, their families, and staff alike; I couldn’t believe what a caring, and exciting ‘culture’ that exists at Fox Run.  It’s such a privilege to be a part of this Community.  Having said that, I strive to carry out the Fox Run Mission Statement every day; “Fox Run Orchard Park offers an exceptional living option where seniors may age with grace and dignity”.   
 
Fox Run offers programs and events that encompass the six dimensions of wellness:  physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and vocational.   My goal is to build on existing caring relationships and continue to better Fox Run for all living and working here. 
I will always help in any way I can, that’s my nature.  My door is always open for an idea or concern.  I am engaged with the Residents daily; the heart of this Community.
