MARK DE PECOL

CFO

Jamie is a CPA with 15 years of senior living and asset management experience. He started his career at Ernst & Young and spent six years in a nationally recognized senior living consulting practice before forming his own firm. Jamie has also served as CFO for several senior living communities.

Jamie had a drive to provide the quality of services in a senior living community that he wants for his own family members, and doing so differently than what he saw in the marketplace for seniors. He joined KindCare to bring this model to a wider swath of seniors.
