What's In A Name?

Why the name Alpha Leonis?   Regulus, or its Latin derivative, Alpha Leonis, is the brightest star in the constellation of Leo and one of the brightest stars in the night sky. The name was chosen during a summer visit to a local lake after Founder, Michael Chandler, and his wife, Kelly, ran through a brandstorming exercise. Born in July of 1974, a Leo, and with a historical coat of arms and family crest containing three lions, this name was more than fitting to represent the integrity, perseverance and grit Michael applies to his consulting and the organizations he builds and leads.  Furthermore, Alpha represents "the leader of the pack" and Leonis translates to "lion strength." The consultancy is based on his wealth of expertise gained over the years as a recognized leader, consultant and entrepreneur.
