Meet Our Team
Gregory Brun, CEO
Responsibilities: Strategy, Management, Organization, Finance.
A native of France, Gregory has lived and worked in the U.S. for nearly 25 years. An accomplished pianist, he relies on music to help facilitate creative thinking about new ways to disrupt healthcare services for seniors. After earning graduate degrees in accounting/finance, international policy and commercial diplomacy, Gregory built a successful career working with business leaders and CEOs challenging the status quo.
Eventually Gregory turned to a mission aligned with his passion — helping families find superior, compassionate senior care for their loved ones. Says Gregory, “In this industry, there’s no real pioneer. Everyone’s doing things the same way, year after year. That means the possibilities to innovate, to do things better, to create real change — they are limitless. And I love that, because using Unicity Healthcare to raise the standards of care to seniors in need is truly my passion.”
Gregory ensures that quality always comes first, incorporating it into his team’s forward-thinking culture as they work to improve the lives of a fragile population and the families who rely on them for care. Gregory’s vision is to maintain a culture that attracts, develops and rewards talented team members. From aides to nurses to office staff, Gregory and Unicity are driven to find high-caliber employees and provide them with the tools to help reduce the stress on patients and families.
Every day, Gregory challenges himself and his Unicity team to reflect on the prior day, and the families and lives they impacted. “On a daily basis,” he says, “every decision that we make, we change someone’s life.”
This emphasis on the human element of Unicity informs every aspect of Gregory’s decision-making when it comes to his growing Unicity Healthcare into the industry’s premier health services provider to seniors.
