The University of Vermont School of Business Administration Hoffman Family Business Lecture Series is proud to welcome Bill Stenger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jay Peak Resort, on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 11:30am in the Livak Ballroom in the Davis Center.
Jay Peak is a four-season resort in Northern Vermont, close to Canada and Burlington. It features a year-round indoor waterpark, ice arena, championship golf course and plenty of skiing and snowboarding.
Mr. Stenger has been President and Chief Executive Officer of Jay Peak, Inc. since July 2008. He is currently spearheading an effort to bring $600 million of EB-5 money into the Northeast Kingdom. EB-5 is a federal immigration program for immigrant investors that provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States.
“I am delighted to welcome Bill Stenger to speak as part of the Business School’s Hoffman Lecture, which focuses primarily on business innovation,” said Dean Sanjay Sharma. “We believe Mr. Stenger’s experiences in continuing to develop one of the most popular ski resorts in the northeast while stimulating the local economy and creating jobs in the Northeast Kingdom serves as a great example for our students as we help them develop the knowledge required for success in today’s complex global economy.”
Before becoming President and Chief Executive Officer at Jay Peak, Mr. Stenger served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Jay Peak Ski and Summer Resort from April 1985 to June 2008. He also has been a Director of Mont Saint-Sauveur International and has served as a Director of Central Vermont Public Service Corporation.
