An Insider's view of Leyton

What does your typical day look like?

I spend my days speaking with innovative companies in the software, food and beverage, and manufacturing sectors. Since they don’t always realize they are doing R&D, my job is educating them on the R&D Tax Credit and how it can benefit their businesses. Our business model encourages companies to look into the R&D Tax Credit with no risk!

Taylor

R&D Credit Sales Consultant Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Having the passion to exceed goals on a daily basis in a cooperative environment. No two days are the same, so flexibility and willingness to be coached are also extremely important traits to have.

Angelo

Senior Sales Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We encourage new ideas be voiced and given the chance to be pursued. People regularly join in entry-level roles and grow with the company, go on to manage teams, and ultimately become a key part in driving the strategy for the business. No matter how long someone has been with us they have the ability to influence our growth and diversification.

Tom

Senior Vice President, USA

What are some things you learned at the company?

I have seen how fostering a supportive, collaborative environment that collectively celebrates each individual’s success can empower people to rise to their full potential. I continuously learn about cutting-edge technologies by working with innovative companies, and how helping them secure an R&D tax credit can bolster future reinvestment in R&D.
