LEA Executive Team

Tony Szczepaniak CEO

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is to not let the worries of tomorrow spoil the joy of today.

The most inspiring part of my job is connecting people and then watching them achieve something together that they might not have been able to do without being part of LEA Global!

The most important thing I learned before high school was that my parents were pretty awesome and taught me that attitude really does determine your altitude in life.

Carla Blattenbauer Executive Assistant

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is a statement from my Dad “the check is in the mail” for the gas money to come home. Family always comes first no matter how busy your personal and work life is.

What's the most inspiring part of your job? The opportunities to work with our member firms and Team LEA – Chartering the course together for success!

The most important thing I learned before high school was “treat people the way you want to be treated.”

Maricar Galler Regional Liaison - Asia Pacific

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is : If you make a commitment, keep it. It keeps me going when things get tough and has helped me grow into a responsible person.

The most important thing I learned before high school was to sit by someone at lunch who is not your best friend. You might make a new friend and learn new things. And you can trade some really cool food.

Jessica Pescatrice Director of Marketing & Communications

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is not to take advice from people who aren’t where you want to be. Also, there’s only one judge at the end of this life. That’s the only (person) you need to impress and ensure your soul and mind are clear.

The most inspiring part of my job is being able to work closely with esteemed colleagues and learn from everyone.

Jill Szczepaniak Member Services Coordinator

I live in Minnesota. I enjoy playing Pickleball, travelling, and hanging out with my family and friends. The best piece of advice I have ever received came from my father: “There are some things you just don’t have to do anything about”. I love helping people and solving problems. That is the most inspiring part of my job.
