Peder Johnsen is the Chief Executive Officer of Concordis Senior Living, LLC. Peder has worked in the senior living industry for almost 20 years and is responsible for regulatory compliance and the day to day operations of the Concordis communities.

Peder’s family has been involved in the senior living industry for three generations, making them one of the early senior living developers/operators in the state of Florida. The Johnsen family developed their first family owned and operated assisted living community in 1980 in central Florida. The Johnsen’s executed a successful strategy of developing, stabilizing and selling assisted living facilities.

In 1995, Peder assumed leadership of his family’s assisted living communities consisting, at that time, of two communities in Marion County, Florida. As administrator of these facilities, Peder was responsible for all aspects of the business, including day to day operations.

Beginning in 2000, Peder renovated and expanded the two existing communities. He later purchased three additional underperforming facilities and made them profitable by way of repositioning and/or renovations. During this time he also developed a community from the ground up.

In 2008, Peder teamed with Trent Watkins to establish what is now Concordis Senior Living, LLC.
