I am deeply grateful for this award and recognize that the second part of ‘Brava’, or doing more, has just begun for me – more dedication to employees, more driving business growth, and more philanthropy.
McLean, Virginia –
July 15, 2015 (PRWEB) July 16, 2015 -- Washington SmartCEO has recognized MorganFranklin Consulting Managing Director Leigh Ann Schultz with the Brava Award. The Brava Award honors 40 of Greater Washington’s exemplary women each year for their leadership, philanthropy, and mentorship. Schultz leads the Corporate Investigation & Dispute Solutions practice and serves as a member of the Women’s Initiative Executive Leadership Committee at MorganFranklin, a D.C.-based, strategy and execution-focused business consulting firm and professional advisor.
Schultz will be profiled in the July/August issue of SmartCEO alongside her fellow winners with backgrounds in consulting, technology, and nonprofit management. All of this year’s winners will be celebrated at an awards ceremony on July 30, 2015, that will gather more than 300 local executives as well as previous winners.
“When I say ‘Brava’ at the conclusion of a play, it is both a thank-you for the artists’ culmination of hard work and talent that resulted in an excellent outcome, and a way to say, ‘I wish I could see more,’” said Schultz. “I am deeply grateful for this award and recognize that the second part of ‘Brava’, or doing more, has just begun for me – more dedication to employees, more driving business growth, and more philanthropy.”
After acquiring more than 20 years of Big Four accounting, industry, consulting, and regulatory experience, Schultz joined MorganFranklin to lead the Corporate Investigation & Dispute Solutions practice where she helps companies deter, manage, and remediate corporate investigations or anti-bribery claims. Leigh Ann is a dynamic growth market-focused leader advising high-growth companies and providing high-stakes solutions. She has led numerous buy-side and sell-side activities and leverages her deep experience in post-merger integration and operational process improvement. Alongside her demanding professional life, Schultz makes charity and community involvement a priority. In 2012, she brought Girls on the Run, a national program that encourages girls through interactive lessons and running games, to her daughter’s school and then served as a head coach for three semesters. She has served on the advisory board for Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind since 2013, and since 2014 has served on the Global Good Fund Leadership Development Council and the advisory board for Hopecam. Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind serves the visually impaired as well as those who are both visually and hearing impaired. The Global Good Fund engages high-potential young leaders in fellowship and mentorship. Hopecam supports children undergoing cancer treatment with technology to aid connection and help patients overcome social isolation.
MorganFranklin leadership was excited to nominate Schultz for the award, noting: “Leigh Ann looks at a fork in the road and chooses the path that may include the most challenge but also the greatest rewards. Shortly after joining us, her contributions quickly began to shape the growth of our firm.”
