Meet the Chairman and CEO — Tom Grape

“I wanted to be in a career that would give me the opportunity to build something tangible. I knew senior living had a great future and I wanted to be in on the ground floor. Of course I didn't do it alone, not by a long shot. From the start, Benchmark has been blessed with a team of incredibly smart, talented, hardworking, high-energy people- not only in the Home Office in Waltham, but in each and every one of our communities throughout New England. I love the fact that what I do really touches people's lives in a personal way. I've built office buildings in the past. Who cares if you build another one? But doing this right - doing senior living right - that's different. I see it in the letters we get, the lives we touch, the stories we hear."
