The Timothy B. Hussey Leadership Institute honors the legacy of one of Maine’s most esteemed business and community leaders. Tim Hussey was committed to the principles of servant leadership over his two decades as president and CEO of Hussey Seating Company, a 180-year-old Maine family business. Tim envisioned an institute that would engage, educate and empower the next generation of Maine leaders to change communities for the better by “doing well while doing good.”

In 2018, two years after Tim’s untimely passing, the inaugural Timothy B. Hussey Leadership Institute was held on the Portland campus of the University of Southern Maine. Emerging leaders of organizations throughout the region, from start-ups and nonprofits to long-established companies, were invited to engage around topics related to the business of doing good. Through extensive conversation on how to build and sustain a successful, values-based business, our goal is to equip participants with actionable tools and strategies to facilitate change within their organizations.
