Richard Westin

Founder & Managing Partner

Richard Westin founded Agemark with partner Jesse Pittore in 1987. A senior living pioneer, he is passionate about creating exceptional living experiences for our residents. He is equally committed to sharing creative ideas and enthusiasm with the Agemark team. He served as CEO of the company from 1987 to 2022.

Prior to co-founding Agemark, Richard was a successful real estate syndicator and investor. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Carolina and a Juris Doctorate from the University of California.

“When I helped found Agemark, I hoped it would become a company that was true to its mission of providing passionate care and fun for our residents, their families and for every member of our one thousand wonderful employees. Older folks who need our services also need to know that we care deeply for them and have their back every single day. It is an honor to bring love, compassion and joy to their lives. Treating people like family is the heart of what we do.”
