Mid-Shore Public Affairs: Kent Center’s Board President Randy Cooper Looks Forward


Randy Cooper is perhaps best known for the highly successful renovation of the Radcliffe Mill just north of town for the new home of Radcliffe Corporate Services, which he founded in 1987, but it’s clear from his recent interview the Spy that he’s not yet done with building things.

After a long career in accounting, including top positions with Arthur Andersen & Company, Bank of America, and the Mellon Bank, and the success of Radcliffe, Randy’s new challenge comes with his appointment as president of the board of Kent Center, Inc, Kent County’s highly respected organization serving the region’s needs to help and support adults with developmental disabilities.

In his Spy interview, Randy talks about the extraordinary contributions Kent Center has made to help close to seventy clients and their families with a staff of over one hundred staff, as well as increasing the number of those living independently. He also talks about the unique challenge that parents have to ensure their adult children are taken care of after they pass away.

    I think it’s wonderful but he could not accomplish this without some of the faithful employees that work at the Kent Center. I believe these very good employees need to get raises. No raises in over 12 years is disgraceful. Some of them work more than one job just to make ends barely meet. Take care of your employees that love the Kent Center individuals like their own. As Richard Branson once said “clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”
