Building Services Director
James Mason, Building Services Coordinator for Sage Spring Senior Living, began his career in the building industry. He spent 10 years leading multiple field crews, and seven years as the vice president of Development for Landmark Surveying, where he led all private sector commercial and residential development. During this time, he developed a land surveying student organization, and helped teach para-professional classes in geomatics and land law at the local college. Two years ago, James brought his expertise in building management to the senior living industry because of his own personal family experience with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
He believes the heartbeat, cleanliness, and ambience of a community is critical to the wellness and wellbeing of our residents’ lives. James starts each day wanting to make a difference in people’s lives.
