On April 15, 2009, Shannon Leigh Associates was born.
Looking at our growth 8 years later…It’s been an amazing journey.
Shannon started Shannon Leigh as a design consulting firm after over 20 years in the sign business. In many ways, Shannon Leigh is a typical start-up company, but in others it is anchored in strong foundations and connections to the industry. But more than just starting a business, Shannon wanted to start a business that allowed people to have work-life balance and was community honoring. She hired people from diverse backgrounds and broad experiences – including sign fabrication, healthcare industry, sales, education, engineering, landscape design, customer service, interior design, and construction.
Shannon is also learning that she hired people who can be sneaky.
To celebrate our 8th anniversary, the team surprised Shannon by taking her for lunch hour pizza and bowling! We went to the local bowling alley, Manor Bowl, ordered a couple of pizzas, and brought a cake. It was truly satisfying to have our normally chatty leader speechless with emotion as she realized she was being the person celebrated.
Here are a few of the highlights. Don’t mind the blurriness of the photos…this team is always moving!
Enthusiasm…Shereen and Margo exhibiting the kind of enthusiasm that they bring to their projects as well.
So, as we celebrate 8 years of business, we want to make sure that for those of you reading this, those of you have contributed to the success of Shannon Leigh in all sorts of ways –
Thank you for being a part of our journey.
