Christopher Hand

Christopher set out to own and operate luxury hotels, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration from a world-leading Swiss hospitality institution, before pivoting to medical services for the elderly. After perusing a second bachelor’s degree in the USA, Christopher began to work in the senior living industry and quickly became one of the youngest Dementia Care Directors in North America. Christopher has made it a priority to mentor queer and trans talent throughout their career and even founded one of the USA’s first LGBTQ+ focused support groups for Alzheimer’s disease. Now a Rotman MBA, their dream is to turn their passion for service excellence into human-centered business models that incorporate necessary operational components while giving greater attention to individual identities, design, culture, and the quality of life of the most disadvantaged.
