Successes Across the Years

Justin Stevens

Justin Stevens '09, who studied business administration and finance, says his mentors at Nazareth guided him to "set goals and tasks and hold myself accountable." Now president of O'Keefe Stevens Advisory, Inc. financial planning firm, he loves that his work enables him to help individuals and couples reach their financial and life goals — such as retiring with no debt, able to leave money to their kids and able to support community organizations that change people's lives. "It's really awesome to see." He won a Rochester Business Journal's Forty Under Forty Award for his success in business and service to the community.

Cass McCrory '02

"While at Nazareth, I was able to step into many opportunities that helped develop the skills necessary to be a leader in business today. From student government to internships, there were so many instances where mentorship and guidance was generously provided to improve and nurture me into a stronger and more intentional leader."

Cass McCrory '02, who majored in business administration and economics, is owner and marketing strategist at Capra Strategy and has been involved in community leadership as a board member at Sojourner House and at Muddie's Buddies (which supports kids with cancer or chronic illnesses).

Brad Ford

"My learnings at Nazareth allow me to think with a leadership mentality and to be proactive rather than reactive in day-to-day business situations. Effective leadership trickles down and ultimately drives bottom-line results."

Brad Ford '14, '18G, '20G, whose undergrad major was business administration, is now a senior equity compensation analyst at Constellation Brands.
