Daniel Hassan

President & CEO

Having spent the early part of his career in the hospitality industry in Boston managing several high-end restaurants and owning his own, Dan returned to graduate school to get his MBA. After graduation in 1990, Dan soon found the retirement and senior housing industry very complementary to his earlier work experience, yet with the additional component of providing healthcare, combining both security and hospitality in thoughtfully designed environments for older adults.

Now in his third decade in the industry, he is grateful to have served and touched many lives, and to have worked with dedicated professionals who have helped to make the industry a better place for all of us. In 2000, Dan started his own firm and continues to enjoy both personal and professional satisfaction on projects and locations of his choosing for Grand Senior Living.


Dan received his bachelor’s degree from Emerson College, and an MBA from Suffolk University, both in Boston, MA.
