Success Story

James Biere – Chief Executive Officer, Plymouth Place
Biere provides leadership as future of Senior Living evolves, overcomes

Since first arriving at Plymouth Place in 2018, a premier nonprofit retirement community located just west of Chicago, Jay Biere has prepared for an evolution of sorts as the demographic began experiencing a tremendous influx of aging millennials seeking a superior lifestyle experience. However, it was his leadership over the past 18 months that has drawn notice, as he led implementation of strict protocols to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff, and helped form a co-op with six other senior living communities to discuss pandemic-related issues, brainstorm solutions that would allow the group to prepare for a second wave, and overcome the international health crisis. Biere was selected for the role of CEO following a nationwide search conducted by WittKieffer, in partnership with key stakeholders at Plymouth Place. Under his leadership, Plymouth Place nurtures a healthy endowment, allowing the organization to continue serving residents whose financial outlook has changed since first arriving at the La Grange, IL, community.
