Our Team Members


Liam Leonard


Liam is the leader and visionary for LIONSCOVE. Liam established LIONSCOVE because he wanted to have a greater impact in his community and free himself from the mental model that organizations make choices for you. He wanted to create something that didn’t necessitate being on the road all the time or tied to his phone. Family needed to come first, and that’s precisely the culture Liam has established at LIONSCOVE.

Liam has been involved in real estate lending for 5+ years and is responsible for originating hundreds of loans personally during that time. He is also an active real estate investor with a portfolio of projects spanning ground-up development projects, turnkey rentals, adult family homes, short-term rentals, and even international rentals. Prior to LIONSCOVE, Liam held executive positions at T-Mobile across a variety of functions which prepared him to have firsthand knowledge of key corporate functions to be able to effectively lead LIONSCOVE. He holds a BA in economics from Yale and an MBA from UCLA Anderson where he took as many real estate finance courses as offered.

Giving back is part of what defines Liam and his family; they are dedicated to providing housing and services for women and children in transition. He loves spending time at church and socializing with his church community. When he’s not working, he can often be found enjoying one of many outdoor activities with his family and friends, such as kayaking, hiking, rafting, adventuring, or on the soccer field as a professional referee. When the weather isn’t cooperating, Liam loves board games, puzzles, escape rooms, and anything that will stretch and challenge his mind.

I set the vision and establish the culture for the company, holding people and teams accountable to the values and goals we have set together.

When I established LIONSCOVE it was because I wanted to have a bigger impact in the community that I worked and free myself from the mental model that the organization that you work for makes the choices for you. I didn’t want to be on the road all the time and tied to my phone, family needed to come first and that’s exactly what we established at LIONSCOVE. I also wanted to use my skills to work on a local level where I knew I would be successful.

LIONSCOVE co-founder

Aidan Leonard

Chief Strategy Officer/Founder

Aidan oversees the strategic direction of the company to ensure it supports the mission and vision. He prioritizes key initiatives to steward the growth and success of LIONSCOVE. He embodies a healthy tension with Liam, his older brother, to keep him accountable and ensure all relevant perspectives have been evaluated. Aidan founded LIONSCOVE out of a desire to create an organization that possessed a values-based culture and people-first mindset. He’s proud to run the business with the belief that integrity and transparency are more important than profiting at the expense of others.

Aidan has deep expertise in consulting and overseeing strategic projects. He is an expert in analytics and synthesizing complex information into concise bite-sized pieces. He worked with leading healthcare consultancies throughout his career before settling in on the “client” side of BioMarin. Aidan received his B.S. in neuroscience from Brown University and an MBA from the Berkeley Haas School of Business.

When he’s not helping grow LIONSCOVE, Aidan can be found enjoying a plethora of outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, and backpacking. He also trains in Muay Thai and enjoys the arts of coffee roasting and grilling.

I’m in charge of making sure the strategic direction of the company supports the mission and vision of the company. I make sure the right things are prioritized to have the biggest impact in our growth and success. I hold the CEO accountable and create a healthy environment of questioning decision making to ensure all relevant perspectives have been evaluated.

The possibility of building something great that will have a lasting impact on our communities, friends, family, and employees.
