About the Business for Life work group
The Business for Life work group, part of the implementation of the Greater Richmond Regional Plan for Age Wave Readiness, is chaired by Beth Ludden, Senior Vice President of LTC Product Development for Genworth Financial. The group brings together a network of businesses, professionals focused on aging challenges & services, VCU professors and students, and local providers focused on future services and products that appeal to a growing market of consumers. By considering key factors of physical environment, access to services, customer appeal, workforce, marketing and engagement, the Business for Life work group provides a platform to foster sound business practices and enhance profitability. As with all work group initiatives, these goals promote active aging, as well as engagement, livability, stability and wellness for all generations in the Richmond region.
