Leo Menard is the founder, CEO, CFO, and President at Menard Management LLC and HSJ Capital, Inc. Leo launched HSJ Capital, Inc. in 2010 to open a Great Clips salon in Easton, Pennsylvania while still working his “day job” as a corporate Chief Financial Officer. Leo took the opportunity to buy Lawrenceville Opticians in 2020, which former owner, Jim Murray, created and ran for 40 years with Leo’s same values, customer service and employee appreciation.
Leo’s business practices reflect his personal values in that all people are to be treated with respect. He has been married for 30 years to his lovely wife and is the proud father of three amazing children and grandfather to one awesome granddaughter. Family and faith are very important in his life. He is a member of the Helping Hands Ministry at his church. He works tirelessly to help run many outreach programs such as the food pantry, school supplies forchildren, Thanksgiving dinner baskets, Easter dinner baskets and many others. He and his wife enjoy their family but also love spending time together traveling to wonderful places in the good ol’ US of A, wherever they can find a hockey game, concert, comedy show or a historical site to explore.
