Leonid has been with BCNA since 1998. He enjoys working with clients from various ethnic backgrounds, using technology to provide seamless lending services to entrepreneurs, as well as helping clients develop their capacity and skills to grow their business and achieve success. When he drives through his community in Brooklyn with his wife and friends, it gives him a great deal of satisfaction to point out which businesses are owned by his clients. Leonid understands what it takes to run a small business not just as an experienced lender, but also as a partner in a skin care and aesthetic spa, a family business, operated by his wife, a licensed cosmetologist.

Leonid graduated from the Kiev College of Music and the Syrit Computer School in Brooklyn. He came to the US from the former USSR in 1988. His passion is music and most of his free time is spent in a home recording studio, writing and producing music.
