The sales process was seamless and I can sincerely say the whole Senske team was a pleasure to work with. I’m excited to see just how far we can take the continued expansion of Emerald Lawns with the combined resources of Senske and GTCR.  It’s a new chapter for myself and Emerald but one I’m looking forward to.”
