Laura Leatherman

My name is Laura Leatherman and I am currently Chief of Staff at Moveworks. I am new to the official Chief of Staff title after organically stepping into the role with cyber security start up, Distil Networks. After helping Distil grow from Series A to acquisition, I recently joined Moveworks to help scale the business operations function and assist the leadership team with special projects.

Pro Tip

When joining a new company, meet with employees to understand the org before making any changes.


How to improve and create processes in highly manual environments. Insight on the M&A process, both acquiring and being acquired.


I'd like to learn from others how they scaled an organization - added processes, doubled in size, expended globally, etc - while still keeping the culture and core values of the company. Also, I'd like to learn more about the IPO process and how to set the leadership team up for success.
