Bailey’s Story

Giving: A Generational Tradition

Bailey J. Siegried

Vice President of Global Marketing, Nordam Member, Alexis de Tocqueville Society

Supporting the Tulsa Area United Way is a generational tradition for Bailey J. Siegfried.

Bailey’s father, Ray Siegfried, founded local aerospace company NORDAM in 1969, was a lifelong supporter of United Way and served as campaign chair in 1987. NORDAM, its stakeholders, and the Siegfried family members themselves, have always been major supporters. “United Way events were a regular part of family life for us,” he says.

Bailey and his wife Kellner recently became members of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society.

“Most people, I’ve found, do want to help others less fortunate than themselves,” Bailey says. “The United Way is an ideal avenue for that. They can be counted on to invest contributions wisely in support of a broad cross-section of our community – and make a real difference to individual lives.”
