Who is Leverette Weekes?
In 1973 our founder, attorney Cornell Leverette Moore, was frustrated with discrimination in the workplace and the lack of traditional opportunities to advance his career using his legal degree from Howard University. Mr. Moore and his beloved wife, Wenda Weekes Moore settled in Minneapolis- St. Paul, Minnesota, and bet on the strength of his network of diverse professional athletes, executives, and entrepreneurs to fuel projects delivered with excellence and powered by diverse talent.
With deep roots in construction, real estate, and financial institutions, many in the community still remember our legacy of work on the Minneapolis Metrodome and various civic buildings in the Twin Cities in the 1970s.
For much of the '80s and '90s, the company quietly supported the emerging pipeline of talent across the Twin Cities. In 2016, Leverette, Weekes & Co., Inc, was relaunched as Leverette Weekes leadership development and communications agency by Ms. Meredith Moore, the youngest of Mr. Moore's children and a proven leader in diversity and communications.
Today, Leverette Weekes helps executives inside and outside of corporate America have a positive and lasting impact on their organizations, and the world.
