Early last year, we were surprised when Torey Riso told us he was leaving Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors, where he had been serving as President and CEO. He was brought in by the founders to add experience and his contacts to the growing firm. And grow it did. He figured he had done what was needed and it was a good time to leave. And then the pandemic hit, which we are sure altered his post-Blueprint plans.
It was just announced that he has joined Huron Consulting Group as a Managing Director specializing in healthcare services, but particularly the senior care market. He has helped small and mid-size operators scale their operations, and in particular will be able to help clients evaluate their portfolios and any strategic transactions they want to pursue.
He is an attorney licensed to practice in New York and California, but much of his recent his background has been in finance. Prior to Blueprint, he was President and CEO of Care Investment Trust, which was publicly traded prior to 2014, and provided capital to the seniors housing industry. He was also Senior Vice President and Chief Counsel for various business units of CIT Group Inc., including CIT Healthcare and CIT Commercial Real Estate.
We wish Torey well in his new endeavor.
