Meet the accounting and information technology staff.

The accounting staff is linked with the information technology (IT) staff through Greg Leatherwood, who wears the hats of Senior Director of Finance and IT point man. Greg oversees the accounting team, LouAnn Gilmer and Kartik Vyas, and the IT manager David Polimene. All told, these staff members account for 46 years of serving the League! They cover all financial aspects of the LWVUS and LWVEF--investments, dispensing of Education Fund monies, payments to vendors, receipts from donors, income from publications sales and such--and keep us securely connected electronically through e-mail and the Internet. League members rarely have an opportunity for direct contact with this group of staff members, but now you have an opportunity to get to know these "hidden" League assets.

Greg Leatherwood joined the League in 1990, becoming director of finance in 1993. He graduated with honors from the College of William and Mary. Greg became licensed as a certified public accountant during his six-year tenure with Price Waterhouse Coopers. He gained experience as a corporate accounting manager before joining the League staff. Under Greg's leadership, the League entered the technology age--Windows-based computers, local area network, e-mail, the Internet, the League Web site and a modern LAN-based accounting system. During his free time, Greg dotes on his nieces and nephews; his current budding interests are wood-working and lampworking.


Kartik Vyas, senior accountant, has been with the League since 1986. With 31 years of accounting experience, he is dedicated to his work for the League. Kartik received a BS in Accounting and a BS in Law from universities in India. In what little spare time he has, often when he is waiting for transportation and commuting, Kartik indulges in his favorite outside activities--reading and listening to Indian music.

LouAnn Gilmer, senior accountant, has been with the League since April 1993. She received her BS in Accounting from Charleston Southern University in South Carolina. LouAnn often joins David Polimene for the "delightful" 2 1/2 hour-commute from her home in Maryland to our offices in Washington, DC. When she is not driving her three children to their extracurricular activities or bringing them into the office to help, she enjoys gardening, home decorating and reading.

David Polimene, IT manager, is the person we call for "technical support." His calm response gives "emotional support" to those of us who are technically challenged at times. He commutes daily from Baltimore, where he tells us he is perpetually rehabilitating his Victorian row house. David has a BS in Biology and a BA in History from Arizona State University, degrees which led him to the obvious career choice--Internet technology. During his down time, David hones his guitar and mandolin skills, sings, and holds fast to his dreams of becoming a rock star or pop icon.
