With more than 20 years in the senior housing industry, Kendall Oliver has an insider’s perspective on what it takes to design, build, staff, and market a community for older adults. His in-depth operational knowledge comes from firsthand experience.

He is a licensed nursing home administrator and opened his first assisted living facility, Cambridge Hills Assisted Living, in Roxboro in 2000. After Cambridge Hills proved a success, Kendall was convinced that he could extend his vision and operational experience into independent living for active older adults.

In 2008, Kendall and his partners launched what has now become the Cambridge Village Optimal Living Brand, beginning with Cambridge Village of Apex. Cambridge Village of Wilmington followed in 2015, and The Cambridge Brier Creek is currently under development for a planned 2021 opening.

Kendall’s diverse skillset has enabled him to venture into a variety of other real estate projects, including office, commercial and land development. He and his family live in Raleigh, NC, and attend Crossroads Fellowship Church.
