George Petraitis, of Palos Heights, has been elected to a five-year term as board chairman for Smith Senior Living, which operates Smith Village in Chicago’s Beverly community and Smith Crossing in Orland Park.
Both are continuing care retirement communities.
Petraitis has served as a board member for more than 10 years, the nonprofit said. He is president of LaMantia Architects Inc., a division of LaMantia Design and Construction Co. in Brookfield.
