As Director of Operations, Lesley Murray serves as our control center at Redwood Wealth Management. In other words, all work eventually funnels through her.
After living in New Jersey for 14 years, Lesley returned to Atlanta in 2017 – bringing more than 20 years of operations experience with her.
Her ability to see the big picture – while also taking in small, important details – enable her to do a great job refining our processes and procedures. (For example, she’s already helped streamline new clients’ paperwork.)
This valuable skillset, paired with Lesley’s get-it-done approach, was a combination we couldn’t resist.
Prior to joining Redwood in February 2019, the native New Yorker was the Senior Operations Manager at Modera Wealth Management in New Jersey. She also has been a Senior Vice President for Valley National Bank’s Wealth Management division, a Managing Director at Hallmark Capital Management, Inc., and the Chief Compliance Officer and Operations Manager for New Century Asset Management. She also sat on the board of both New Century and Hallmark.
Never content to rest on her laurels, she’s currently studying for her CFP designation.
Lesley has a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in management. She earned it from Centenary University in NJ, where she graduated magna cum laude.
Lesley now lives in East Cobb with her husband and three teenage children. When she’s not busy with the kids’ activities, she enjoys traveling and cooking.
“I’m particularly fond of Italian cuisine because it reminds me of my heritage. I have many of my grandmother’s recipes including my personal favorites, Sunday Gravy and eggplant parmigiana.”
Lesley is also an active volunteer with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“Every child deserves joy in their lives and, although they handle it well, these kids go through so much adversity. I’m passionate about helping create experiences for them that they – and their families – need so badly.”
