Mark & Shawn Gates Start Encore Careers with Caring Transitions Franchise

When Mark Gates retired, he knew his career journey wasn’t over – but it was time for a change. He was ready to do something he and his wife, Shawn, could do and enjoy together and that would allow them to make a positive impact on their community. That’s why Mark and Shawn decided to open Caring Transitions – Twin Cities East, which just launched on January 4, 2021.

Mark has more than 32 years of business leadership experience with 3M Company. He has led large global organizations in the Industrial Markets, Automotive, Aerospace, Traffic Safety and Health Care industries. Shawn has more than 20 years of customer service and supervisory experience. She has worked in commercial and corporate aviation as well as in logistics-heavy corporate travel management.

“When I retired, I knew I wanted to do something Shawn and I could do together, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. When we found Caring Transitions, we realized this was a great opportunity to provide a much-needed service to the community and a means to building a philanthropic platform to support the communities we serve. We are excited to build Caring Transitions – Twin Cities East, from right here in our hometown,” Mark said.

In addition to providing services that can significantly reduce the stress of senior relocations and clean outs with Caring Transitions’ wide variety of services, the Gates are especially excited being a small business that’s able to truly support their community and their neighbors.
