Renee Lewis · CEO and President

Y Renee Lewis

Renee has 25 years of building successful businesses and business units. She loves to work with inspired business leaders who know they can do more with what they have but don’t have the time to invest to realize that potential. She has always leveraged her love of software engineering principles (that is, designing for efficiency and effectiveness) and getting things done through others (that is, managing difficult teams). Her most interesting adventures were turning around and then selling a technology company to Cerner (wonderful experience albeit tough ride), and creating a viable and productive team after a four-company merger to create a stronger offering in eLearning.

Renee earned a reputation for delivering on time and under budget technology and software systems. Her most interesting discovery was that it’s the people who deliver and create value while the technology is just a “means” to an “end-point.” When you don’t have the skills to harness the “means” to achieve a high-value “end-point,” you potentially fail yourself, your company and your client. Team after team, she proved this situation is avoidable when you give team members the right skills and targeted support, which is easy to achieve when you use our proven approach.

Today, Renee finds the best use of her skills and experience is working for inspired leaders to develop the skills and attitudes of that drive high-value outcomes and really make a difference either collectively or individually.  Blending her experience in eight different startup companies and her tenure in large Fortune 500’s, she also has a love for entrepreneurship and applying entrepreneurial methods in large organizational settings (“intrepreneurship”) to keep businesses thriving, fresh and alive. Interesting note: most intrepreneurial ideas come from client-facing managers described above.

Renee is a business owner, speaker, wife and mom. In her "spare" time, she is actively involved in her community supporting local civic and school associations. She spends time with her family at Deep Creek Lake whenever possible consuming every business or history book recommended to her (please send your favorite book referrals!).

Lesley J. Boucher · Managing Director

Lesley J. Boucher

Lesley Boucher has over 25 years of business experience helping governments, non-profits, international organizations, and private sector companies meet their goals. She learned early in her career that regardless of how senior you become in an organization, one element of your job will remain the same – effectively mobilizing people to get the work done, and get it done well. Lesley loves working with leaders in organizations to do just that. During one particularly interesting incarnation, Lesley led a group of policy advisors in the Government of Canada’s Privy Council Office who were responsible for briefing the Prime Minister on a weekly basis for his Cabinet meetings, and developing the strategic advice necessary to ensure the government was executing on its commitments. It was there that she learned the critical importance of ensuring that the organizational vision is clear, strong and well understood and that everyone in the organization understands and is delivering what they need to do to ensure success.

Lesley is an economist by training, a certified facilitator and quality process advisor, but it is what she has learned from previous senior management positions and her consulting clients that serve as the foundation for her work today. Lesley enjoys working with community and volunteer organizations, and has served on the Board of the National Association of Women Business Owners – DC Chapter, and Success in the City. Lesley is active on the public speaking circuit, where she and Renee have great fun delivering interactive seminars and workshops on topics such as “The Value of Vision”, “How to Outperform the Competition”, and “Ask Don’t Sell – the Power of Relationship Selling.” Last but certainly not least, Lesley is most happy when hanging out with her husband, children and any friends who happen to drop by their home in Bethesda, Maryland. Travel, visiting the family cottage in Quebec and continuing the summer tradition of waterskiing and entertaining friends is her definition of fun.
