We are proud to announce the promotion of Leah Gallagher to Senior Vice President and thank her for her dedication to the BG Team over the years. We recently sat down with Leah to discuss her journey and her new role at BG.
Can you give us a background of your career leading up to when you joined Belfort Group?
Before joining BG, I had the advantage of working in house at two large companies in very different industries. I spent the first few years of my career at Mass Eye and Ear before moving on to work for State Street under their Global Services division. Both companies were great to work for and gave me skills I’ve been able to apply to my 5+ years at BG. I’m still close with a few people who mentored me at both MEE and SSGS.
Give us an overview of your new role as Senior Vice President at BG.
I’m very excited for my role as Senior Vice President. I’ve been leading the education practice for the last few years and will continue to do so. However, in my new role, I’ll have much more global responsibility for the agency’s growth. My time will be carved between new business development, client relationship management, agency marketing and operations.
What do you see for BG in the future?
My hope for 2021 is that I can help make our agency stronger by bringing on new clients, supporting the growth of our current staff, and bringing in new talent to support the incredible work our team does. Over the last few years, we have worked hard to stay ahead of the ever-changing marketing landscape and my hope is that we can continue to provide critical support for our current and new clients, while also helping our amazing staff grow and expand their knowledge.
