About Lindsey LeClair
Lindsey is a Chief Legal, Compliance and Risk Officer at Valeyo.

What drew you to Valeyo?

Valeyo, as a company, is breaking new ground in a highly regulated industry. The level of complex strategic planning needed to navigate partnerships, negotiate vendors, and own and license innovative technology solutions for insurance and lending was a big draw for someone in my field. 

Looking beyond the excitement of the day-to-day work, the overall company culture is impressive. At Valeyo, there is a genuine alignment of behaviors with their core values of accountability, partner-centricity, teamwork & collaboration, results-orientation, integrity, and passion. From the top-down, everyone clearly subscribes to these values and is driven by a singular goal of client success. That’s a rare environment and one I’m thrilled to be part of – and to promote.

What can a new hire expect to work on when they join your team?

At Valeyo, we are developing new products and building different business models in order to successfully execute our multi-carrier strategy. From a Legal and Compliance perspective, that translates to an incredible amount of new and challenging cross-functional work ranging from conducting research, writing policies, fostering relationships with vendors, insurance partners, and across teams, growing your knowledge of technology, insurance, and lending, and building out risk management. Ultimately, everything you do is about supporting the priorities of internal stakeholders and those of our partners and vendors. In addition, you will have the opportunity to introduce your ideas and opinions on best practices and emerging approaches.

What does a new candidate need to have to be successful here?

Collaboration is part of our DNA at Valeyo. We are a tight-knit team that thrives on working cross-functionally. Projects at the strategic level are driven by the opportunity to make a broad impact, and everyone involved has a chance to contribute to our corporate goals.

Over and above the desire to be part of a collective effort, to be successful at Valeyo, you need to be intrinsically curious and highly accountable. With those traits, you will have endless opportunities to build your skills and exposure here with the support of a company that wants to channel your passion along with a rewarding career trajectory.
