Josh Johnson
Josh Johnson / chief executive officer

Josh Johnson has been managing senior living communities since he received his undergraduate degree in 1997 — and was hired by Jim Biggs. Josh spent most of his career in California managing senior living properties, where he broke records for highest net margin, highest price per unit and highest occupancy during the recession. He also holds a master's degree from the University of Southern California's Leonard Davis School of Gerontology.

In 2012, Josh moved to China to help a large Chinese company establish their senior living platform, where he successfully opened a 3,000-apartment continued care retirement community (CCRC) and helped develop plans for six similar communities in China. He also led a team that was the first large insurance company in China to successfully invest in the U.S. senior housing market. In 2016, he started his own investment company, Atlantis Senior Living, which has been responsible for brokering over 60 properties worth over $900 million.

Prior to China, Jim spent 23 years with Life Care Services®, the third-largest manager of rental senior living communities and continuing care retirement communities in the U.S. He served as Vice President of the company's largest territory, providing direct oversight for over 20 older adult housing developments and operational communities located primarily in the western U.S.
