Sunshine Retirement Living CEO Joins Texas Business Leadership Council
Luis Serrano, CEO of Sunshine Retirement Living, which owns and operates more than 40 senior living communities in the U.S., has joined the Texas Business Leadership Council. Serrano recently moved to Austin, Texas, to be more central to the company’s independent living, assisted living, transitional assisted living, and memory care communities across 18 states. In Texas, Sunshine Retirement Living currently operates four communities including The Clairmont Retirement Community and The Continental Retirement Community in Austin, and Brook Ridge Retirement Community and The Gardens at Brook Ridge Assisted Living and Memory Care in Pharr.
Justin Yancy, president of the TBLC, said, “As Texas continues to boom, and as more and more businesses relocate their headquarters or senior leadership to the Lone Star State, it is imperative for these leaders to get involved. CEOs like Luis are some of our state’s most energetic advocates because they believe in the values and spirit that Texas holds dear. Luis’ story is a reminder that Texas is the best place to do business.”
The Texas Business Leadership Council (TBLC) is a statewide network of CEOs and senior business executives, who advance a long-term vision of a prosperous Texas in a globally competitive business environment. The TBLC brings expertise, research, financial resources and advocacy to the leaders of Texas state government to provide a unique view of the potential outcomes of legislation, regulation and statewide funding.
“It’s an honor to join the Texas Business Leadership Council and support their mission to continue growing Texas into a global business powerhouse,” said Luis Serrano, CEO, Sunshine Retirement Living. “As a recent transplant now living in Austin, I have come to admire the way the Council and the State of Texas support a diverse range of companies conducting business in and from this great state.”
Family-owned Sunshine Retirement Living was founded in 2007 and today operates approximately 4,000 senior units across its communities. The company focuses entirely on offering premier yet affordable living options for the middle-market senior, a demographic that will see significant growth in the years ahead. In fact, by 2050, it is estimated that the number of people aged 65 or older in the U.S. will grow to nearly 90 million as compared to 54 million in 2019. Seniors aged 85 or more will reach 19 million in 2050, approximately a 20-fold increase over 2021.
