Leslie Barkley, Managing Director - Leslie’s career has enabled her to ‘wear many hats’. Business consultant, business analyst, strategist, business and IT process specialist, operations manager, marketer, designer, renovator and industrial manufacturing manager. This varied experience whets her appetite for being able to accomplish that which has not happened before. But whether she is enabling a small start-up businesses to gain a leg up on their competitors or coaching multi-national Fortune 500 companies, like Delmarva Power, in reshaping their processes and changing the dynamics of their playing fields, the goal is to make the business – and the people who run it – work better. As VP of Strategy and Marketing for Diamonex, an ultra-high tech emerging market company, Leslie helped reshape the company to enable a small firm of less than 100 employees – 18 with Ph.D.’s – be one of the top suppliers in the world to a very sophisticated global customer base. That experience also enabled her to participate in several leading edge ventures, such as the Hypercar design project (a design project that incorporated Battery Cell power plant technology – thus facilitating rethinking how a car should be built – from the ground up). She also holds degrees in Business Management from Lafayette College and an MBA in Operations Management from Drexel University.
