Marc’s calling to senior living began in 1991 during a volunteer experience that instilled a passion for ensuring excellence in serving seniors. Working with some of the nation’s leading health care companies provided valuable experience in startup, turnaround, sales, and operations management. As VP of Sales and Marketing, Marc identified opportunities for improved performance and launched reorganization strategies resulting in explosive census growth during times of industry-wide occupancy decline.
As a first time COO, then CEO of a regional operating company, Marc focused efforts on cultivating Servant Leaders. Inspiring trust, his teams enjoyed dramatic improvements in Net Operating Income, achieved record occupancy levels, and won numerous national awards for excellence. He was honored to receive the Servant Leadership Award recognizing his contributions in driving culture change across the company.
