President & Founder
Leah York founded Talbott Talent in January 2017 with one goal – to dramatically improve the work culture of nonprofits, starting with their leaders. For the past five years, under Leah’s leadership, her vision has become a reality. As the President of Talbott Talent (named after her brother) Leah leads a dynamic, passionate team of nonprofit experts as they help nonprofits and associations find the best CEOs, train their leaders, hire the right people, and improve the overall effectiveness of their organizations.
Prior to founding Talbott Talent, Leah spent almost 20 years in association C-suite and nonprofit consulting roles, including serving as an outsourced CFO for multiple associations and nonprofits, an interim CEO, and the Chief Operations Officer for Indiana Perinatal Network, where she served for 11 years. Leah established a career as a financial, governance, and leadership trainer and consultant for nonprofits and associations across the country.
Leah earned her undergraduate degree from Indiana University, her MBA from the University of Indianapolis, and is recognized as a Certified Association Executive by the American Society of Association Executives. She has previously served as a member of the board of directors of the Indiana Society of Association Executives and Board Treasurer of Art with a Heart.
Leah currently serves as the Vice President of the board of directors of The O'Conner House (a home providing help and hope for homeless pregnant women and their children). Leah cares tremendously about her community! She is the founding committee chair of the OneZone Women’s Network (OWN) and serves on the board of Good Day Carmel (a city-wide movement to promote positivity in Carmel, Indiana).
When Leah is not laser-focused on changing the culture of nonprofits, she volunteers at her local farmers market in Carmel, Indiana, takes daily walks on the Monon Trail, spends time with her friends and family, and does what she can to enjoy her community and make it a better place.
