Marcus Breuer

Chief Executive Officer

Touchmark Central Office

An experienced leader and mentor, Marcus views his role at Touchmark not only as Chief Executive Officer but also Chief Experience Officer. He is passionate about elevating the standards for senior living and finds purpose and satisfaction in providing genuine hospitality for the residents of Touchmark.

Marcus holds an M.B.A. in Finance from Portland State University and a B.A. in Marketing and Information Systems from the University of Washington. Prior to joining Touchmark in 2004, Marcus worked at Intel in various purchasing and finance roles. Before that, he served as a branch manager for Wells Fargo Bank. These experiences, coupled with his commitment to hospitality and undeterred figureit-out attitude, have been critical to the development and financing of new Touchmark communities by working with the Touchmark Development & Construction team on real estate and development and expanding its reach to include an award-winning winery, Amaterra.

Before assuming his current position of CEO, Marcus served as CFO and managed a range of departments in the company including sales, marketing, wellness, IT, legal, and Touchmark Development & Construction, along with various accounting functions. He is the 2008 recipient of the Touchmark President’s Award, given to a team member in recognition of exemplary work. “Earning the opportunity to return and serve each day”—the closing line of the company credo his leadership helped craft—also serves as his personal motto in how he approaches each day in service to the community of Touchmark.

Marcus credits Founder and Chairman Werner G. Nistler, Jr. with providing him the unwavering support to evolve Touchmark into the full-service, hospitality-focused ecosystem it is today. Always enthusiastic about the success of those in the community, Marcus has mentored many junior staff, welcoming the innovation they bring to their positions. He loves that his role allows him to foster deep and meaningful relationships within Touchmark and the greater community.

Outside of work, Marcus is superfan to his four athletic daughters and can be seen bounding around Oregon in the family’s Sprinter van, cheering his girls to victory at volleyball and basketball tournaments.
