Virginia Wesleyan graduate Tim Bailey ‘83, a past recipient of VWU’s Distinguished Alumni Award, has joined the VWU Board of Trustees.  As a student at Virginia Wesleyan, Bailey was a member of the Marlin baseball team, a resident advisor, assistant softball coach, and security guard. His studies in business led him to work in sales for Aramark Corporation shortly after graduation. In his current role as Division President for Compass Group/Canteen—a position he has held since 2006—he is responsible for $275 million in annual revenues in Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and North and South Carolina, including 24 vending districts, eleven office coffee operations and eight food regions. Bailey returned to campus in April 2015 to speak as part of the Business Speaker Series during the University’s student-led Business Conference. He is a Portsmouth, Virginia, native, but now calls Charlotte, North Carolina, home.
