Jim Biggs has been directly involved in the senior living industry since 1988, working with more than 45 communities in both the United States and China. He recently completed six years as the Managing Director of a full-service senior housing management company located in China. During this time, he was instrumental in the development of three senior housing product lines—bringing American best practices to this evolving market.
