October 26, 2023 —We are delighted to announce that Steve Bailey, the Chief Strategy Officer at The Kendal Corporation, has joined the Lerner Executive Mentoring Program to mentor Grace Marburger, a junior pursuing a degree in Operations Management at the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics at the University of Delaware. The Lerner Executive Mentoring Program is a unique opportunity for UD students to connect with seasoned executives who can provide guidance and support.
Helping Students Achieve Career Goals
The Lerner Executive Mentoring Program is aimed at helping students achieve their career goals by pairing them with executives with complementary professional backgrounds. The program focuses on providing student mentees with ongoing professional guidance and support until graduation. This support typically extends beyond graduation, as the mentor and mentee develop a professional relationship that can last for years.
Mentors like Steve Bailey are encouraged to engage their mentees in discussions that prepare them to enter the workforce and excel in their chosen professions. Steve expressed, “It’s been terrific getting to know Grace and introducing her to Kendal and the possibility of a career in senior living. The Lerner Mentoring program is just one example of our intentional and ongoing effort to advance Kendal’s mission through university relationships”.
Shared Years of Experience
In his role with The Kendal Corporation, Steve leads new senior living initiatives, seeks new development opportunities, and fosters innovative partnerships with universities and other non-profit organizations supporting Kendal’s mission. A Licensed Landscape Architect, Steve earned his undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture from Michigan State University and an MBA from the Whittemore School of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire.
The Kendal Corporation is proud to have Steve serve as a mentor and wishes Grace and all mentees success in the program and their chosen careers.
