Bryan Schachter

Chief Investment Officer

I joined Watermark and The Freshwater Group in 2006 as the wellness initiative coordinator while I was still a student in the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management. I advanced through the ranks by transitioning through analyst and director roles, until I was named chief investment officer in March 2020.

Today, I manage Watermark’s investments, including acquisitions, developments, redevelopments and dispositions performing financial and market feasibility, as well as joint venture, loan, and sale negotiations. Since 2011, The Freshwater Group/Watermark has closed 49 separate transactions with total deal capitalization of more than $3.6 billion and has approximately $1 billion in the current pipeline. From those transactions, the company’s portfolio has grown from seven to 75 communities located across 22 states, including developments, redevelopments, and management transitions that are currently underway.

I enjoy the work I do to help Watermark and The Freshwater Group execute financial transactions in the senior living industry. I remain committed to making a profound impact each day as my experience evolves in this changing industry.

I graduated magna cum laude in 2007 from the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management with a Bachelor of Science in business administration, with specialization in marketing and entrepreneurship.
