THE RLA STORY

David Ammons formed Retirement Living Associates, Inc. (RLA) in 1990. At that time, Mr. Ammons served as the Associate Executive Director at Springmoor, Inc., a 550 person Continuing Care Retirement Community in Raleigh, North Carolina. With Springmoor’s success and reputation, developers, architects, lenders and other community professionals were contacting Mr. Ammons for advice and consulting on all aspects of Continuing Care Retirement Communities, now known as a Life Plan Community.

RLA was formed to allow engagements to proceed as Mr. Ammons continued to work full-time at Springmoor. Mr. Ammons was promoted to Executive Director in 1992 and served in that capacity until 1997. He currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Springmoor, in addition to being President at RLA. Mr. Kyle Dilday became the Executive Director at Springmoor and served in that role until 2008 when he joined the RLA team.
