In celebration of International Women’s Day, we wanted to shine a light on our Vice President, Finance & Administration, Leah Turner. She is not often in the spotlight, but she is always working at a high level to keep bb7 at its best from a finance and operations perspective.
In 2019, Leah stepped up and into the role of VP of Finance after 10 years at bb7. She truly knows bb7 inside and out, not just from a financial and people perspective, but also from a day in and day out, writing proposals and winning the work perspective.
After starting at bb7 in 2010, Leah was promoted to Director of Staffing and Human Resources in 2016. This promotion came after nearly 6 years of running multiple areas of the business including Human Resources, Technical Talent, and fully understanding the operations and talent needed for bb7 to be successful in design consulting and technical staffing. Her sense of humor and ease of connecting with people helps the bb7 team and clients feel welcome, appreciated, and like family. The board appreciates her strategic eye for finance and keeping a sharp eye on the bottom line.
Leah is tenacious and challenges herself and others to push themselves to be better. bb7 strongly believes in the integrated approach of finance and operations and that innovative approach to business is what drives the strategic direction of bb7.
On a personal note, she is a dog-lover, and has a special place in her heart for her pup, Coco. Leah is originally from Verona, WI, and is a proud alum of UW-Madison and DePaul University. Ask her about her new house…
