MARC VORKAPICH,

PRINCIPAL & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Marc's calling to senior living began in 1991 during a volunteer experience that instilled

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.

 

Today, Marc brings to Watercrest Senior Living Group more than 20 years of

accomplishment in acute care, long-term residential, and outpatient settings. In his

capacity as VP of Sales and Marketing over the past decade, Marc developed the

"RISE model" to drive a collaborative approach to strategic planning. Working with

teams in identifying opportunities for improved performance Marc has launched

reorganization strategies resulting in explosive census growth during times of

economic downturn and industry-wide occupancy decline.

 

As Chief Operating Officer and then President and CEO, Marc continued to focus his

efforts on cultivating Servant Leaders. Under his leadership, his teams have enjoyed

dramatic improvements in Net Operating Income (NOI), undergone successful culture

change and won 7 American Graphic Design Awards for marketing excellence.

 

As President and CEO of a highly regarded regional operating company, Marc was

honored to receive the Servant Leadership Award from his colleagues in recognition of

his significant contributions in successfully driving culture change across the company.

When asked which of his many achievements stand out most, he is quick to reference

the copious promotions he had the pleasure of offering to inspiring leaders over the

years. “I am so very blessed to work alongside of people who inspire me,” says

Vorkapich. “There are so many passionate people who have the potential to achieve

amazing things for our seniors as we look into the future of senior living. It is both

humbling and exciting to be a part of the future of the senior living industry.”

 

Marc holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology from Virginia Tech and is

currently considering thesis topics in completion of a Masters in Health Care

Administration from Pennsylvania State University.  Additionally, Marc is driven to

publish the "RISE Model" as well as other practical applications of Value Centered

Leadership for aspiring executives. Residing in Vero Beach, Florida, Marc is blessed

with the love of his life, Kathryn, their son, Chandon, daughters, Palmer and Saylor.
