Barbara Smith, Operations Director
Barb is the Operations Director for EAS LeadGen and manages all of the LeadGen staff. She also oversees all projects, new hire training, client meetings, new project launches and all of our incentive compensation programs. Barb works with every client that we have here at LeadGen and she makes it a point to make an individual contribution to each of the account teams every day. She also helps identify potential new clients, hires new team members, assigns projects, and works as Brian Campagna’s right hand (wo)man helping to direct all of the day-to-day activities and traffic at LeadGen.
Prior to working for LeadGen, Barbara was a Business Development Coordinator and Supervisor for KPMG LLP. Her senior role with the firm not only required her to set appointments on behalf of KPMG Partners and Senior Managers, but also required Barb to supervise a core “Dream Team” of 12 Business Development Coordinators – most of whom now also work for LeadGen.
Barb has an Associate’s Degree from Accounting-International Business College and is very active with municipal leadership roles in her local town of Leo, Indiana. She maintains an active status as a Board Member for the Fort Wayne Community Center Foundation, is Chairman of her town’s Chamber of Commerce and is a member of both the Revitalization Partnership Committee and the East Allen County School Structuring Plan Committee. Barb has also dedicated many years of service as a State Board Member on the Indiana Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
Barb’s sweet spot is that she always gets the job done. You will quickly take comfort in finding Barb at her desk — no matter the time — night or day. Client service and team support truly are her passions! Our clients rely on Barb to wrap discipline and process around all of the projects that we undertake on their behalf in the U.S. and around the globe. When your firm spans multiple time zones, it is a great relief to have Barb just a phone call, e-mail or IM away.
