Prior to joining National, Leonard spent 5 years as the Tribal Utility Authority General Manager for the Laguna Pueblo Utility District. In addition to upgrading over $70mm in utility infrastructure, he learned the native language.
While working at the Pueblo of Laguna, he spent most of his free time volunteering after work and on weekends helping the elders and disabled remodel their homes into ADA accessible living spaces, and worked with tribal members on village projects.
