Charles F. Leonard


Charlie has 15 years experience in business and operations leadership, and brings diverse experience from roles in product design and development, logistics management, customer experience, IT oversight, and sales leadership. Prior to PwC he co-founded a cybersecurity technology company focused on helping IT and security leadership communicate more effectively with their executives and boards of directors.

Charlie specializes in cyber risk governance: designing, developing, and implementing risk and security oversight programs. A critical component of effective programs is their in-built methods of distributing and communicating information among their various stakeholders. To address this, Charlie developed PwC’s proprietary methodology for board and executive reporting. He has led numerous engagements focused on building metrics and reporting programs that align and integrate hierarchies of management to address executive and board concerns.

He has deep experience in assessing programs against the NIST CSF and other cyber risk frameworks. As a strategic leader, he has demonstrated ability in leading teams of diverse talent to achieve a common goal.
