Crain Completes Chamber Leadership Program

Wendell Crain

MedBen Director of Security, Infrastructure and Web Development Wendell Crain recently completed the Community Leadership of Licking County program, offered through the Licking County (OH) Chamber of Commerce. For completing the nine-month program, Wendell received a Certificate of Achievement at a commemorative ceremony on Friday, May 11.

The Leadership program allows participants to interact with a diverse group of business experts from various job categories. Those accepted into the program are taught the importance of "strength-based" leadership in which the individual focuses on developing specific attributes at which they excel, while gaining useful exposure to area industry professionals.

When asked about the value of the program, Crain replied, "Rather than trying to balance your personal strengths and weaknesses, you learn to focus on maximizing your strengths and then working with others whose strengths complement yours to create an extremely effective team."

As for how completing the program will benefit him, Crain said, "The shift of my personal focus from balancing strengths and weaknesses is a huge change that should greatly benefit MedBen and myself. In addition, I believe that the networking of professionals within Licking County is a great asset and a tool to be used in the future."

Crain joined MedBen in 2003 as a Programmer and served as Manager of Technical Services and Web Development before being named a director in 2015. He holds a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Mount Vernon Nazarene University and an Associate in Data Processing from Zane State, and has earned an MCP certification from Microsoft and a CCENT-RS from Cisco.

Congratulations, Wendell!
