Erich Schuetz, BSE, MBA, Owner
Erich Schuetz is the Owner and the Administrator of Regency Home Care. As such, he is responsible for the day-to-day business operation of the agency. His duties include all the financial aspects of the agency as well as forecasting, strategic planning, budgeting and directional guidance.
Erich is a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Harvard Business School in Boston. He has been in the medical field for the better part of his work career, with early positions in Southern California with divisions of Baxter Travenol and Johnson & Johnson before moving to the Bay Area to help grow a young company later purchased by Smith Kline Beckham. He then spent four years building a start-up company developing diagnostic ultrasound and medical lasers. This $100 MM company subsequently became the heart of Cooper Vision.
Erich moved from Silicon Valley to Atlanta, Georgia to help a German family move their medical device product line from Munich to Atlanta. The primary product is a silicon prosthetic breast form to be worn by women after mastectomies. Today, the company is a world leader in this market.
Erich spent many years caring for his mother who lived well into her mid-90s. This experience allowed him to understand the importance of how helping seniors engage in life mentally, emotionally, physically and socially can make a huge difference in their well being. This current opportunity gives him the ability to “give back” to the community in the latter stages of his work career.
Erich and his wife, Jody, have been married 41 years. Jody has recently retired from being a first grade teacher in Fulton County. Having lived in Dunwoody, Georgia now for the last 35 years, they have raised their two sons: Evan, a graduate of University of Georgia, and Joel, a graduate of Georgia Tech. Erich enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons, their wives and four grandsons.
