Tom Poelma, executive vice president and CFO, was appointed acting president and CEO, said Joseph Anderson, chairman of Fairport Baptist Homes.
Burleigh took the helm in late November 2011. He succeeded the retired Garth Brokaw, who led Fairport Baptist Homes for 21 years. He was with the organization 31 years, beginning in 1980 as chaplain. Its assisted-living community is named for him.
Before joining Fairport Baptist Homes, Burleigh previously served as president and CEO of Evangelical Services for the Aging in Hatboro, Pa., and CEO of Monroe Village of Jamesburg, N.J.
