Happy Anniversary ... Moody’s Investor Service “loves” Stockton University and Dr. Harvey Kesselman.

Dr. Harvey Kesselman has been phenomenally successful during his 6 years as President and Chief Executive Officer of Stockton University.

Dr. Kesselman celebrated his 6th Anniversary as President by receiving a glowing evaluation from Moody’s Investor Service.

Moody’s is a dispassionate financial ratings and analytics company. They do not hand out “bouquets” lightly, or, often.

Here is exactly what Moody’s said about the philosophy of governance at Stockton University under Kesselman’s leadership:

"Stockton's now strong leadership team has a demonstrated record over the last several years of managing large and complex initiatives with the state, which provides a solid foundation for continued growth. The successful completion of the Atlantic City campus and sizable investment at the Galloway campus underscores leadership's actively-managed long term planning approach.

Development of strong budgetary policies and centralized financial monitoring has allowed the university to maintain stable fiscal operations throughout the recent expansionary period.

Leadership has well-defined strategic priorities that include strengthening intergovernmental collaboration and resources, improving academic outcomes, and enhancing reporting and board engagement for greater fiscal and operating oversight."

This is extraordinary, as such words rarely make their way into a financial services rating company’s description of a company or entity.

Before Kesselman’s promotion from Provost to President, Stockton University was not thought of this way.

Kesselman’s leadership and management style are predicated upon elegance, a high degree of professionalism, creativity and treating all team members and students with respect and dignity.

It’s a winning formula and it has delivered documented results.

Here is a capsule of what Stockton University is all about:
