On Jan. 1, 1997, I moved into a little rented office space in Wellesley, Mass., ordered a Dell computer online – which I thought was pretty cool — and put together a business plan laying the foundation for Benchmark. Twenty years and $1.3 billion in investment later, Benchmark has over 50 amazing senior living communities across the Northeast with more openings on the horizon. We have much to be proud of, especially the rich culture and values upon which Benchmark’s success is based. That culture is at the heart of our conversations here, and I welcome your thoughts!
