Nobody Rocks like Kristi Kerr Leonard!

I’ve worked closely with Kristi on many client projects and am constantly impressed with her keen sensitivity to individual needs and situations, her upbeat, positive personality and her ability to identify strategic opportunities for her clients. Her ability to juggle multiple tasks and client relationships while managing the successful implementation of diverse projects on deadline is admirable. She has big ideas that add value to businesses and she never stops learning and staying up-to-date on current trends and best practices.

Kristi has an keen eye for identifying market opportunities. She launched Head Bank Freelance Advertising — the first creative outsource agency of its kind — whose senior creative talent was coveted by top Advertising Agencies in the Southwest. Thus a trend began.

I worked along side Kristi managing Head Bank for four years and respect her unique blend of creativity, business saavy and attention to detail. Kristi has an uncanny ability to develop the people around her while never losing sight of serving and exceeding the high-demand needs of her agency clientele.

I would love the opportunity to work with Kristi again on any project.

It is rare to find as competent, responsible and trustworthy a professional as Kristi. For seven years she managed financial transactions, bill tracking and paying, tax preparation, forensic accounting, and comprehensive yearly financial analysis with little or no direction. As a busy professional myself who is often traveling, her assistance was invaluable. I especially appreciate her multi-tasking skills, her attention to detail and her highly effective presentation techniques. But what really sets Kristi apart is her devotion to her clients and her affable personality, which makes her a genuine pleasure to work with.

When Kristi began working for our family and my business in 2008 we had young children and were both working professionals with a deep commitment to community involvement. With little direction, she walked in the door, figured out where we were and completely organized our financial and business lives. This allowed us to focus on our passions. We had been lost without her! She came up with solutions to complex situations, presented them professionally and advocated on our behalf. She worked with our CPAs, other family bookkeepers and many venders while our home was under construction, and when we moved to a different city, had tenants, sold our home, and as our children grew into their own homes. Whenever a challenge arose, Kristi maintained a positive attitude and persevered. She took over my business management and was able to integrate my family’s financial needs with my business. Kristi kept our family and my office on course and headed in the right direction.

I had the privilege of working with Kristi on a custom publication for a large firm in Dallas, TX. She was the project manager and was always on top of the deadlines and milestones. Because of her leadership we completed everything on time and within budget to the client’s satisfaction. I am proud to recommend her.
