David Reis

Senior Care Development

David started his business career in his family's neckwear manufacturing business. He was, alas, destined to be the third and last generation Reis in the business. At the age of 28 and with $25,000 cash in the bank David decided to leave the family business and start a real estate development company specializing in seniors housing. Thirty years later, as a nationally known expert in the senior housing field, David has developed, and/or has purchased, distressed Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC's), also known as Life Plan Communities, in excess of a billion dollars. David has also developed retirement-oriented projects that span the continuum of care from independent living to assisted living to nursing homes. The growth of David's organization has not changed his essential business philosophy: a focus on a select few projects under development at any one time, and a dedication to quality. As the Managing Member of his affiliated company (Senior Care Holdings, LLC), David was one of a handful of investors who came together to purchase approximately 175 nursing homes across 19 states, which were subsequently sold to G.E. Capital in 2006. Following that, in 2007, an affiliate of Senior Care Holdings invested in a deal to take Genesis Healthcare Corporation private for $1.4 billion. Genesis owned or managed over 210 nursing/assisted living facilities concentrated primarily in the Northeast. In 2011, the investment group sold Genesis Healthcare's real estate holdings to Health Care REIT (now known as Welltower) while retaining the operating company, which, along with its subsequent acquisition of Sun Health Care, was generating approximately $4.6 billion in annual revenue. David became a member of the newly reconstituted Board of Directors and chaired its compensation committee for several years. In February of 2015, David and his fellow investors brought about the culmination of the Genesis growth strategy by combining it with Skilled Healthcare Group, Inc. to create one of the largest post-acute care providers in the country, with management services and/or ownership of more than 500 skilled nursing and assisted/senior living communities in 34 states, and more than 1,800 rehabilitation therapy centers in 47 states. The new company employs nearly 95,000 people and has combined yearly revenue of approx. $5.0 billion dollars. David was a member of the board of Genesis Health Care until June 2019. Along with helping to engineer the highly successful evolution of Genesis Health Care, David's related entities have held investments in companies that operate upwards of 140 nursing homes providing care for some 15,000 seniors in 9 states from Maine to Florida. David has participated on many non-profit Boards over the years including: Trustee of his alma-mater Hampshire College, Executive Board Member and Chair of the Building Committee for Solomon Schechter School of Westchester where he oversaw the land selection, entitlements, and construction of both a middle school and high school; as well as being a Board member of The Windward School where he also chaired the Building Committee and the construction of a middle school renovation project. David currently is a member of the Executive Committee of Maine Coast Heritage Trust (www.MCHT.org) the largest land trust in the State of Maine where David spends many a summer.
