Shawn Lehocky named as first CEO for Pond Lehocky Giordano

Pond Lehocky Giordano, LLP is proud to announce the appointment of Shawn Lehocky as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the firm.  Lehocky previously served as Chief Strategy Officer and has been with the firm since it opened in 2010.

“It is with great pride and excitement to announce Shawn Lehocky as the CEO of Pond Lehocky Giordano. This ensures our future with continuing cutting-edge service, representation to our clients and allows us to continue to grow,” Managing Partner Samuel H. Pond shared. “Shawn is a leader, a visionary, and a strategist. His objectivity and sense of fairness are the foundations of his character.”

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Lehocky grew up with union roots and legal interests. His father was a proud union member who had been injured on the job. Watching his uncle fight for his father’s rights sparked Shawn’s passion for legal work.

“To see that interaction firsthand really sent me on the course of this is something I want to do for other families,” Lehocky shared. “I always had my eye on going to law school, but after I graduated from college and interned at the firm, I quickly realized that my skill set and my passion was more on the technology, analytics, operations side.”

Lehocky has constantly looked for ways to innovate and implement technology in his role and in the firm’s growth. As the new CEO along with the firm’s executive team, he will continue to focus on strategizing new opportunities for the firm, scaling the business, enhancing the company culture, embracing technology to work more efficiently, and growing the brand with innovative and impactful marketing campaigns.

“I’m proud to be CEO of this firm,” Lehocky shared. “It’s one thing to have a passion about what you’re doing, and I feel lucky to have a place where I can put my passion to work in an industry that needs change. To help be a catalyst and a part of this team that’s going to bring that innovation forward and help more people, I feel like the luckiest person alive.”

A primary focus for Lehocky remains providing clients with holistic legal services. Thus, the firm has added short- and long-term disability insurance departments, while developing a nationwide referral network to help meet all clients’ needs, anytime and anyplace.

“My purpose, my mission as CEO is to make sure that this is a meaningful place to work and the work you’re doing is meaningful at all times,” Lehocky said. “There’s a lot of people that have passions and hobbies and everything, but when you can truly do what you love in a place that encourages it, to be able to help hundreds of thousands of people on a yearly basis, I mean, that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy in itself.”
