Lynne Katzmann is Founder and President of Juniper Communities, which invests in, develops and manages senior living and long-term care communities.
With 24 communities in four states and more than 1600 employees, Juniper had over $70 million in revenues in 2016. Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2018, Juniper is ranked #14 by Crain’s New York on its Top 50 ranking of woman-owned companies for the New York tri-state area. Juniper is the only woman-founded, owned and led business among the top 40 national assisted living companies. Lynne launched the business when she was 32, with six years’ experience in the healthcare industry and a Ph.D. in economics from the London School of Economics. An active leader in the social entrepreneurship movement at its beginning, she was a firm believer in the so-called double bottom line: doing well by doing good.
Lynne leads an organization known for resident-centered, personalized care. Juniper’s priorities and its many award-winning innovations are consistent with her belief:
“Aging and its challenges are a natural part of our life cycle. Quality of life in this third act should be enjoyed to its fullest according to each person’s choosing. There is no reason that a frail body should not allow a life of joy and meaning.”
Juniper has been known as a thought leader and innovator within the senior’s housing industry since its inception. Currently Lynne’s focus is on promoting senior living as a population health solution for that segment of the senior population defined as high care and high needs. These are the small portion of Medicare recipients who are most in need of coordinated care and service. Her brain-child, Juniper’s Connect4Life program shows real promise in promoting well-being for this cohort.
Lynne has been involved in the healthcare industry for nearly 35 years, working in the public and private sectors in the United States and Europe. She serves as a board member of an advisor to several for-profit and nonprofit organizations including Senior Care Centers of Dallas, ElderCare Alliance of San Francisco, ArtsConnection of New York City, Tufts University Medical School, and is a Lifetime Member of Social Venture Circle Network.
She lives in Montclair, New Jersey with her partner, Ed Goodell. She also has a son, Andrew, who finished college in the spring of 2016 and is currently working in the seniors housing industry on the investment and finance side.
