Stratford Chefs School Announces
New Director, Marketing and Admissions Development

Stratford Chefs School Board of Directors recently announced the appointment of Elizabeth Kerr to the position of Director, Marketing and Admissions Development. With a reporting relationship directly to the Board, Elizabeth is taking over from Jeff Leney who will pursue other interests. As a recent Stratford Chefs School Graduate (Class of 2021), Elizabeth brings a keen understanding and insight to the advantages of the 32-Week Professional Program and the school’s positioning in a competitive culinary education market. In making this announcement, the Board thanks Jeff Leney for his brief, but distinctive, service as the Director, Marketing and Admissions Development. Jeff forged important new directions in the school’s marketing and admissions process. His initiatives included the introduction of recruitment focused webinars, alongside a deliberate, renewed emphasis on alumni and the vital role they play in attracting student talent. During the transition period, Jeff has been instrumental in Elizabeth’s orientation process and has kindly joined the Stratford Chefs School Advisory Group, ensuring his valued input will not be lost.
