    Meet Your Executive Director:

    Patrick Hardy has worked in assisted living for over a decade. He joined Benchmark in 2018 desiring to make a positive difference in the lives of Clapboardtree's residents, their families and associates.

    What Brought You to Benchmark:

    I thought I wanted a career in finance, but after two years it lacked purpose and meaning. Customer service is at the heart of Benchmark's values and they've made it possible for me to make a difference.

    Fun Fact:

    I am a fan of all New England sports, so much so that our dog is named Larry Bird!
