Michael Embler Joins the Board of Healthcare REIT Ventas   

Chicago-based Ventas, Inc. today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Michael J. Embler, former Chief Investment Officer of Franklin Mutual Advisors, to its Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Ventas Inc., an S&P 500 company, operates at the intersection of two large and dynamic industries – healthcare and real estate. A healthcare specialist, Ventas is a REIT with assets in senior living, life science, R&D, medical office buildings, outpatient facilities, hospitals and other assets.

“Michael is a highly qualified independent director with deep investment expertise, healthcare and REIT experience and a strong financial orientation that will benefit Ventas as we execute our strategy and capital allocation initiatives,” said Debra A. Cafaro, Ventas Chairman and CEO.

In light of his extensive governance experience at other leading public companies, and the unique insights he brings as a successful institutional investor, Michael will be immediately additive to the Board. We are pleased to welcome Michael and look forward to his contributions as Ventas capitalizes on the robust recovery of the senior housing industry and delivers value for shareholders and other stakeholders.”
