Leadership Connect has been connecting leaders in business, government, and media for half of a century.  Its founders, having backgrounds that traversed the military, law, politics, business, media and philanthropy, recognized the importance of identifying, learning about, and contacting leaders in all of those fields.  Today, we continue that focus by tracking leaders, maintaining detailed profiles on those individuals, and helping our 4,000 clients connect with them.

We work with nearly every U.S. government agency, many S&P 500 companies, and leading organizations in media, consulting, law, banking, and the not-for-profit world.  We help everyone from marketing and business development teams to senior leaders prep for important meetings, build existing relationships, and find new ones.

Our clients trust their reputations to the quality of our data.  We have the highest quality profile information available, using a highly educated team of U.S.-based analysts, many who have worked in industry.  We couple this team together with our powerful algorithms to deliver a level of depth that is available nowhere else.  When acting on bad profile information risks losing or weakening a relationship, thousands of users rely on us daily.

We are privately held with offices in New York and DC.

Research & Update Process

Leadership Connect’s content team, located in New York, NY and Washington, DC, verifies and updates our data daily.

Content developers are assigned research projects to add new organizations, individuals, or other information.

Content managers are assigned a specific portion of our database and are required to update it continuously, maintain its size, and increase its comprehensiveness. They ensure that the information listed for each organization remains complete and accurate.

Each organization listed in the database has a contact person employed by the organization who reviews and updates the information listed. The content managers send these contacts a copy of the information for verification anywhere from 2-6 times per year. Sendings occur on a rolling basis, with a new batch being sent out each month, and are limited to either an 8- or 10- week cycle for return and data-entry.

Using technology, the content team monitors more 125,000 primary source websites on a daily basis. They also use technology to assist with constant email verification to ensure deliverability, uncover changes, and maintain compliance with federal laws.

The content team reviews 500+ primary and secondary news sources for leads about changes to the content.

Primary sources include press release feeds and mandated government filings.

Secondary sources are those containing information that wasn’t released directly from the affected organization, including news sites, blogs, and any user-generated content.

All information received from a secondary source is always verified directly with the organization affected before being added to the database.
