Kevin M. Sealey

Works Hard
As the tribe member responsible for the day-to-day management of Valeo Student and its subsidiaries, I implement programs that monitor and improve financial performance, create best-in-class customer experiences, develop training and development programs for all tribe members, and oversee all aspects of the student housing platform. Prior to Valeo Groupe Americas, I was fortunate to play an integral part in taking Campus Crest Communities (NYSE: CCG) public in 2010 and helped close the largest merger in the student housing space, expanding CCG’s footprint across 26 states, as well as Canada.

Has Fun
Outside of the office, you can find me spending time with my wife and daughter biking, hiking, hanging out in the park, and cooling off at a local brewery. Or, if I have time alone, it’s usually spent deep in the woods searching for golf balls I shank off the tee.

Helps Others
In my personal life, I try to leave a positive impact on anyone that I come across and live by the ‘pay it forward’ mentality, hoping that it inspires others to do the same. Professionally, I feel the same way. By focusing on the growth and development of each and every tribe member we have, not only am I privy to his or her aspirations, but I can facilitate opportunities to fulfill each one.

Amanda S. Fisher

Works Hard
I work with the Valeo Student and Valeo Senior tribes to ensure we are exceeding our residents’ expectations, achieving our revenue targets, and that processes are in place to make our teams more successful. Having previously served as Vice President of Sales for Campus Crest, where I was responsible for the leasing and revenue performance for 51,000 beds, delivering on an outstanding customer experience while executing and delivering on the brand promise is in my blood.

Has Fun
I’m passionate about helping others, working out, cooking and new adventures. When I’m not working, I enjoy to traveling to new places, spending time with my family, trying new recipes, and anything outside.

Helps Others
At Valeo, I get to integrate my passion for helping others by developing and mentoring other tribe members, as well as helping our residents have an amazing experience at one of our communities. In my personal life, my grandmother is suffering from dementia so I try to visit and be there for her even if it’s only a phone call to brighten her day. I also try to always be a positive influence on people around me and to be there when a friend or family member is in need. In my professional world, I do all I can to help coworkers grow and develop to their potential.

Works Hard

My first exposure to HR was watching, learning, and listening to my Mom when she was the Personnel Director at Conneaut Lake Park years ago. Those moments, nuggets, and observations formed my foundation and passion for HR. I have been blessed with a 20+ year career in HR that has allowed me the opportunity to support, encourage and love people as they build their own career path. I believe in and see the amazing future VGA has on the horizon, and I am excited to be a part of this extraordinary tribe!

Has Fun

If I am not working, I am probably with my two sons, Nick and Andrew, friends and/or family. I love traveling, exploring, a good fire with a glass of wine, visiting a brewery or vineyard, making memories, and capturing those moments with photos. My favorite hashtags say it all: #embracethemoment, #embracethejourney, and #thebestisyettocome

Helps Others

This is another area where I am thankful for a solid foundation being formed at an early age. Helping others is easy, natural, and effortless; it is just what we do. It brings me joy no matter how little or big the opportunity may be, serving at church, helping someone with their groceries, kind words of encouragement, or just simply #leadingbyexample. The greatest joy beyond helping others, personally, is seeing Nick and Andrew’s willingness to help and serve others on their own.
