Leonard hails from the Kansas City area and holds a BS in Finance. He later earned an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

CEO Ron Lockton expressed enthusiasm for Leonard’s arrival, citing his financial expertise, global perspective, and “great energy” as key assets for supporting the brokerage’s future growth.
