Jay Wells #14107
Jay first arrived at Dudley in 1986. Though he’d attended other camps, Dudley was unique in that it was focused on helping him become the best person he could be. He quickly came to love the culture of “putting the other fellow first,” and he returned for seven summers including several as a leader. He later returned to camp in a role with the Camp Dudley Association in 2010. Jay graduated from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and received his MBA in 2004 from The UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. Jay and his wife, Robin, live in Raleigh with their three children.
Jay’s career has been in information technology; he currently serves as Vice President for Customer Advocacy for mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc. in Morrisville, NC. Jay believes that it has been a great industry to be a part of, helping him to grasp the absolute criticality of constant evolution, and to be on the lookout for opportunities to change in smart and forward-looking ways. He sees similar challenges with Camp, and is interested in assuring that Camp adapts well to change, builds stronger ties with alumni, and maintains a diverse culture. He is also looking forward to being on campus in Westport and Colchester more often!
