a passion for ensuring excellence in serving seniors. Since then, Marc has honed his
skills working with some of the nation's leading health care providers. His expertise
includes leading start up and turnaround initiatives, sales and operations management,
and the development of SERVANT Leaders.

efforts on cultivating Servant Leaders. Under his leadership, his teams have enjoyed
dramatic improvements in Net Operating Income (NOI), undergone successful culture
