Josh Crisp is an innovator and a rising change-maker in the area of senior living in the Southeastern United States. As the founder, president and CEO of Solinity, a Knoxville, Tennessee-based company, he envisions multigenerational affordable communities with a boutique flair while moving the senior care industry forward.
In his warm and vibrant Solinity model, Crisp’s planned communities offer specific housing for certain levels of care: independent living, assisted living and memory care alongside intergenerational and multi-family housing allowing people of varying ages to live and work together. The for-profit, faith-based Solinity initially plans to focus on Tennessee and surrounding states while appealing to local preferences and addressing unmet needs for new development, acquisitions and third-party management opportunities.
Crisp has over a dozen years of executive experience creating deep roots in the senior living sector in the areas of managing and consulting in all aspects of senior living operations in the Southeast. This includes development, marketing, and start-up operations for new communities as well as acquisition of new management opportunities for existing properties in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors.
He began his career as the marketing director for Trinity Hills in 2006 at the Trinity Care Senior Living community in Knoxville. At Trinity Care, he was promoted to regional director of operations and then director of operations, staying with the company for nine years. In 2014, Crisp founded and became president of TLC Senior Living, where he worked concurrently while consulting as a vice president of Dominion Senior Living.
A nationally certified Assisted Living Administrator, he was appointed by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities for a 4-year term beginning January 2014 and has been reappointed for an additional term serving through 2021, where he chairs the Assisted Care Living Facility standing committee.
Crisp is a graduate of Carson-Newman University with a degree in Business Administration. He makes his home in Fountain City with his wife Lauren, and their three children.
