"One of my dearest hopes is that here in the middle of New York City God might be pleased to use The King's College to train and shape the thinking of the next generation of great business leaders."
In addition to teaching at King's, Leigh-Anne Walker is also an adjunct professor at the NYU Stern School of Business. Professor Walker is also the founder of a small business, EthicsUS, which provides professional training on ethics, compliance, and values-congruent conflict resolution to corporations. Her research interests include the pre-Revolutionary American economic system, and how notions of liberty and moral virtue influenced the development of free market capitalism in the United States.
Professor Walker brings years of experience in the business world to students at The King's College. She has served as a senior executive in the financial services industry, with particular expertise in business leadership, CFO-level financial management, process improvement, joint venture management, and strategic planning. Her work at Fortune 100 companies (JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, American Express, Bell Laboratories) has included a number of challenging roles that have caused her to wrestle with a variety of ethical dilemmas, including responsibilities as CFO and later CEO of business units at JPMorgan Chase.
Professor Walker lives in Manhattan with her husband, Jim. Her hobbies include playing tennis and sailing. She also is a proud carrier of a personal pilot's license.
