As Co-Founder, Leanne brings world-class international finance experience to Nexsphere, as well as a passion for the natural environment. She has worked in roles leading large teams of risk management professionals at Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank, Bank of Queensland and most recently Suncorp, working across Australia, New Zealand and the USA. Early in her career she worked on the then emerging sustainable energy sector in the USA, at a time when wind farms were gaining initial acceptance. This experience spurred her desire to take action that would help move Australia to a green and clean energy grid, and ultimately start Nexsphere.
