Maggie Leung leads a team of 80+ staff writers and editors at personal finance startup NerdWallet. Her team has thrived remotely — with high throughput, engagement and morale — since she started it seven years ago. Their ability to retain talent outstrips company and industry averages, even as competitors frequently try to poach NerdWallet’s writers and editors. Maggie’s served on NerdWallet’s exec team since 2013, as the company has grown from about 45 employees to about 500. She also advises companies in the U.S. and abroad.
