Doug MacLatchy Joins the Board of Directors
Drawing on more than 30 years of leadership experience in senior living, finance, and corporate real estate, Doug MacLatchy leads the executive team as CEO of Amica Senior Lifestyles and joins the BookJane Board of Directors. Under Doug’s stewardship, Amica has grown from a start-up to a highly valued senior living brand with 31 residences and 2,950 employees.
Doug began his mission to make senior living better for seniors when he founded BayBridge Senior Living in 2010. After acquiring Amica Mature Lifestyles in 2015, he amalgamated the two companies to form Amica Senior Lifestyles. In doing so, Doug changed the retirement business model to focus on enriching seniors’ lives by developing purpose-built residences providing excellent hospitality, amenities, and personalized care that adapts to residents’ evolving needs. Thanks to industry-leading occupancy success and ongoing growth in opening multiple new locations per year, Amica is Canada’s leading owner, operator, and developer of senior lifestyle residences.
Doug’s vision for enriching the lives of seniors—by creating a premium, personalized experience with discerning care—sets the standard for all new Amica builds and will inform his role on BookJane’s Board of Directors.
