Lesley Brumfield

Project Manager

A master logistician and relentless problem solver, Lesley Brumfield (she/her/hers) is a higher education leadership veteran who brings a wealth of skills and expertise to bear with Credo’s strategic planning clients. Her secret though, is a deep commitment to client engagement. She’s motivated by the question, “How can I leave someone better for having worked with me?” 

An Innovative Approach to Project Management

The answer is often found in her thoroughness, reliability, recall, and acute attention to detail. In her role as a project manager, Lesley stitches together different aspects of Credo’s suite of leadership strategy products to best meet the needs of our consultants and their clients. She draws on her varied on-campus experiences in problem solving, critical thinking, and navigating the needs of stakeholders while managing logistics, customizing presentations and communications, and keeping projects on track for success.   

“Project managers are the engines that keep things moving. We know the details, master the logistics, and set our teammates up to deliver quality services successfully.”

Delivering Heartfelt Service to Colleagues and Clients 

Coworkers lovingly refer to Lesley as "The Pink Force,” referencing not only her obsession with the color pink but also her drive to accomplish our goals. A warm and relatable confidant for colleagues and clients alike, Lesley was selected as the 2022 recipient of Credo’s Value Award representing Heartfelt Service. When she’s not at work, Lesley—a proud Southern Miss Golden Eagle and Texas A&M Aggie—enjoys seeing live music, reading, writing, gazing at the Gulf of Mexico, and spending time with her two younger sisters.
