Lisa McCarthy Bio:

Prior to starting Fast Forward, Lisa McCarthy spent 25 years leading sales organizations at prominent media companies, including ViacomCBS and Univision. She experienced firsthand the toll of high-pressure workplaces where people feel professional success requires personal sacrifice. She and co-founder, Wendy Leshgold, set out to challenge this belief and through their vision, created the Fast Forward Group.

Recognized as a people-first leader and change agent with significant commercial impact, Lisa has been named a “Woman to Watch” by Advertising Age and Crain’s New York “Business 40 Under 40.” Lisa received her BA from Georgetown University. She lives an “overly fulfilled” life in Port Washington, NY with her husband and three children.

Wendy Leshgold Bio:

After many years leading teams and coaching executives, Wendy Leshgold understood the challenges people face in high-pressure, always-on corporate environments. In 2012, she and her childhood friend, Lisa McCarthy, launched the Fast Forward Group to help people live their best lives and do their best work.

Wendy brought her experience as a successful executive coach to Fast Forward. Prior to her work as an executive coach, she spent more than a decade in advertising, leading teams at Ogilvy & Mather, BBDO and Deutsch, where she worked with brands including Apple, Kodak, IBM, Bank of America and Mitsubishi.

Wendy received her BA in History from the University of Virginia, and she is an active board member of the California League of Conservation Voters. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children. In her free time, Wendy can often be found watching her son play baseball and walking her beloved dogs, Scout and Cali.
