Seiler LLP, one of the nation’s leading advisory, tax, and accounting firms in the high-net-worth and closely held business space, is pleased to announce Leah Yoneda has been appointed to the role of Chief Marketing Officer. Prior to assuming this position, Yoneda served as a marketing manager and later marketing director for a decade after joining Seiler in 2014.
“We are thrilled to welcome Leah into this new role at Seiler,” said David Sacarelos, a member of Seiler’s executive committee and the partner in charge of business development. “Since joining, Leah has built the firm’s marketing team from the ground up. She is integral to both the external and internal marketing functions of the firm, assisting with everything from business development to leadership coaching and training. Seiler is grateful for the undeniable impact she has had over these last 10 years, and we look forward to the next chapter of her career.”
Yoneda oversees all aspects of Seiler’s marketing and business development support functions and has been essential to the development of the firm’s brand and visual identity. She elevated Seiler’s strategic plans for marketing, brand, content, and events, and she pioneered digital transformation initiatives – which included implementing the firm’s first CRM and marketing automation platforms, among other projects. In addition, Yoneda works closely with her colleagues in Human Resources and Learning and Development on internal leadership training programs and regularly collaborates with other departments on targeted business development and marketing initiatives. She advises on competitive intelligence and partners with leaders to launch new offerings and services.
“I am honored to have been part of this amazing team for the past 10 years, where I’ve grown as a professional and in turn helped the firm grow. We’ve made great strides toward increasing the firm’s visibility and automating our systems. This is a deeply meaningful milestone for me personally, and I look forward to what the future holds,” said Yoneda.
Prior to joining Seiler, Yoneda served in marketing roles with BDO USA, Charles Schwab, and AssetMark, among others. She is a member of a number of nonprofit organizations, including the Ascend Leadership Foundation (an Asian-American business leadership organization), Oscar’s Place (an animal rescue organization), and Housing Industry Foundation (housing security non-profit), among others. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara, holds a master’s degree in liberal arts, and a professional certification in board service.
