Founder & CEO, Mainstreet

Zeke Turner left a job on Wall Street at the age of 25 to bring his entrepreneurial spirit and international experience back to his home state of Indiana. He founded Mainstreet in 2002 with only $10,000 and a mission followed to transform the way health care is delivered. 

Today, Mainstreet is the nation’s largest developer of transitional care properties. Mainstreet’s innovation and strategic vision, supported by access to capital, have been the keys to success. Zeke and his team took the Mainstreet senior housing and care portfolio public as HealthLease Properties REIT (HLP) on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 2012 with an initial offering of $121 million. In November 2014, Mainstreet and Health Care REIT, Inc. (HCN) finalized a $2.3 billion partnership which, in part, included HCN acquiring HLP.

Mr. Turner is a sought-after speaker and is regularly interviewed by trade publications and national media outlets, including Bloomberg TV, CNBC, Fox Business, and the Wall Street Journal. He has received numerous local and national awards.
