Wayne Powell

Co-Founder / Chief Executive Officer

Wayne Powell has over 20 years of experience in operations of senior living and is currently the founder and CEO of Civitas Senior Living. Shortly after he began working in the senior living industry, he established his reputation of turning failing properties into successful operating communities. Mr. Powell has operated properties nationwide, but mostly within Texas. In 2003, Wayne took over operations of a skilled nursing facility in Fort Worth. Under his direction, the skilled nursing facility went from the 2nd worst rated skilled nursing facility in Tarrant County to the 3rd best. Since that time, Mr. Powell started his own management company which has seen unparalleled success in the turnaround of poorly performing assets as well as in the development of new assisted living communities. Wayne’s knowledge and passion for senior healthcare is unparalleled in our industry, including single and multiple facility operations and ownership. His operational expertise spans skilled nursing, assisted living and retirement/independent living, which shows in all of Civitas’ businesses, properties and programs.
