NIC Revamps Board of Directors, Adds New Officers

Three officers were recently elected to the Board of Directors for the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry (NIC), which announced its officers for the 2011-12 term. Three others were also elected to service additional three-year terms.

The new members are Craig Bernfield, chairman, CEO and president of Aviv REIT; Doug Korey, managing director of Contemporary Healthcare Capital; and Jim Seymour, senior managing director of GE Healthcare Financial Services.

Other officers on the Board of Directors include Randy Richardson, president of Vi, as board chair; John Moore, chief executive officer of Atria Senior Living, Inc., as vice chair; Brad Razook, managing director of CS Capital Advisors, as secretary; and George V. Hager, Jr., CEO of Genesis HealthCare Corporation, as treasurer.


Razook and Moore were both elected to serve additional three-year terms on the Board, along with David Watkins, senior vice president of Heitman LLC. John Cobb, the senior vice president and chief investment officer of Ventas, was elected to serve the remaining two years of Ventas president Ray Lewis’s term, after Lewis, who had previously served two terms, felt it was time for him to step off the board.

“We’re honored that industry leaders from major capital providers and operating companies continue to donate their time and expertise to furthering NIC’s mission of advancing the quality of seniors housing and care by facilitating informed investment decisions,” said Robert G. Kramer, president of NIC, in a statement.
