There were a few high-profile moves in the senior care world in the last month. JLL announced the addition of a new advisory and investment transaction services practice, to be led by Deborah Street. Coming from CBRE, where she was previously the Vice President of the National Senior Housing group, Ms. Street will join JLL as a Senior Vice President and leader of the new practice, which will provide on-demand underwriting, strategic planning, transaction structure/return analysis, transaction management, and due diligence, as well as ongoing asset management services. She will work with Managing Directors Brian Chandler and Bryan Lockard, JLL’s Co-Leads for the Seniors Housing Valuation Advisory practice.
Steve Gilleland, formerly the Managing Director and head of the Healthcare Finance Group at CapitalSource, moved to Senior Living Investment Brokerage where he took the role of Chief Development Officer. In addition to focusing on business development and client outreach, Mr. Gilleland will also participate in company strategic planning. SLIB is coming off a strong M&A year, with more than 60 transactions closed, and whatever doors Mr. Gilleland can help open for them should help them maintain and hopefully grow that business.
Lisalynne Quinn left her Head of Marketing role at RED Capital Group and started her own firm, PaceSetter Marketing LLC, that will offer expertise in marketing strategy, digital market, content creation, marketing automation, brand development, web design, public relations and corporate event management for small to medium-sized companies.
