Marc Vorkapich, Principal and Chief Executive Officer
Marc's calling to senior living began in 1991 during a volunteer experience that instilled a passion for ensuring excellence in serving seniors. Since then, Marc has honed his skills working with some of the nation's leading health care providers. His expertise includes leading start up and turnaround initiatives, sales and operations management, and the development of SERVANT Leaders.
Today, Marc brings to Watercrest Senior Living Group more than 20 years of accomplishment in acute care, long-term residential, and outpatient settings. In his capacity as VP of Sales and Marketing over the past decade, Marc developed the "RISE model" to drive a collaborative approach to strategic planning. Working with teams in identifying opportunities for improved performance Marc has launched reorganization strategies resulting in explosive census growth during times of economic downturn and industry-wide occupancy decline.
As Chief Operating Officer and then President and CEO, Marc continued to focus his efforts on cultivating Servant Leaders. Under his leadership, his teams have enjoyed dramatic improvements in Net Operating Income (NOI), undergone successful culture change and won 7 American Graphic Design Awards for marketing excellence.
As President and CEO of a highly regarded regional operating company, Marc was honored to receive the Servant Leadership Award from his colleagues in recognition of his significant contributions in successfully driving culture change across the company. When asked which of his many achievements stand out most, he is quick to reference the copious promotions he had the pleasure of offering to inspiring leaders over the years. “I am so very blessed to work alongside of people who inspire me,” says Vorkapich. “There are so many passionate people who have the potential to achieve amazing things for our seniors as we look into the future of senior living. It is both humbling and exciting to be a part of the future of the senior living industry.”
Marc holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology from Virginia Tech and is currently considering thesis topics in completion of a Masters in Health Care Administration from Pennsylvania State University. Additionally, Marc is driven to publish the "RISE Model" as well as other practical applications of Value Centered Leadership for aspiring executives.
