LeaseQ Employee Spotlight: Melissa Carney


Melissa Carney


Director, Funding Operations

Where are you from, originally?

Worcester, MA

How did you find LeaseQ?

My former boss from my days at EMC called me up and asked if I’d like to come work with him again.

What do you like most about working at LeaseQ?

Why I like it here starts with where I came from. Before LeaseQ, I spent 12 years at a multinational tech corporation. When the opportunity came to bring my experience to a start-up, I was excited and a little scared at the potential to start the building process. Unlike the information in/information out process that I was accustomed to, I quickly learned that LeaseQ encourages a collaborative and open environment. Every employee is empowered to have a direct impact on the success of LeaseQ. The people here have also made my transition more pleasant and easier than I ever thought possible.

What’s your dream deal for LeaseQ?

Any deal that we can get approved and funded in just one day!

What apps/tech/tools do you use on a daily basis?

I’m always working in Excel and for downtime I browse Instagram.

Any (other) work or life hacks you’d like to share?

I live out of my planner. Every weekend I sit down and write out my tasks for the week ahead to stay on top of all things work and life.

Favorite movie ever (independent of IMDB ratings):

This is always such a hard question for me to answer so with the holidays coming I’ll say, Christmas Vacation.

Favorite activities when you’re outside the office?

Going on adventures with my husband and 2-year-old son, cooking, dining out, and Pure Barre.

Fill in the Blank: I’d love to see my coworker Max Tirey answer these questions.
