Our CEO and Founder, Robert Siegfried, who is a University of Delaware alum, was recently selected to speak to students, alumni, faculty, and staff about leading oneself and others personally and professionally during the Lerner College’s spring 2021 Chaplin Tyler Executive Leadership Lecture Series and business roundtable in May.

“Rob served as the chair of the Lerner Advisory Board and was immensely helpful to me in guiding the college through my first six years here at Lerner,” Lerner College Dean Bruce Weber said. “I received tremendous benefits from Rob's input and involvement in all that we do and think about doing in Lerner College to enable our 4,200 students to have successful starts to their careers.”

“I think, almost by definition, if you improve your life, you will also exponentially improve the lives of people around you,” Siegfried said during the lecture. “Think about the example of Chap Tyler, how he made positive change and helped leaders become better leaders to exponentially improve lives. He leaves that legacy today.”
