Transform Podcast #15: Charlie Wilson of Buckner International

On Nov. 21, Buckner Retirement Services held the official grand opening for Ventana, a $240 million, high-rise continuing care retirement community in Dallas. Even as Buckner is launching this new addition to its portfolio, the organization was working to close on a sale of its historic East Dallas campus, originally opened in 1954.

In this episode of Transform, hear from Charlie Wilson, a senior vice president with Buckner International, who leads the nonprofit’s retirement services business. Learn:

— How Ventana is partnering with a high-profile chef, a large health system, and a wellness pioneer
— Why Buckner is divesting its East Dallas property with an eye toward the future
— Why nonprofits need to find ways to “compartmentalize their risk” and explore more diverse financing options to gain scale and innovate
