About Lesley Sanchez
In 2022, Lesley made firm history as the youngest woman to be named a partner at Anders. She began her career with the firm as an audit intern in 2009 and quickly made herself indispensable to both her clients and the firm itself. Early in her career, Lesley took on leadership roles within the firm’s internal employee resource groups, the Young Professionals Group and the Women’s Initiative, to have more influence over firm policy. These internal leadership roles gave Lesley the experience she needed to assume a leadership position in the firm’s Banking and Financial Institutions group, where she helps banks navigate complex compliance requirements. Lesley was also selected to oversee the firm’s audit intern program, through which she helps recruit, onboard and empower new talent to succeed in the profession. Her leadership capabilities are recognized both inside and outside the firm, leading to her being selected to give the opening speech at the 2022 St. Louis Business Journal Women’s Conference – The Series: Lessons in Leadership.
