Leigh Anne Lankford | TrainingPros President & Director of Growth

Leigh Anne Lankford Appointed President of TrainingPros

Effective Jan. 1, 2020, Leigh Anne Lankford was appointed president of TrainingPros, an Atlanta-based temporary staffing agency that provides large organizations with learning and development (L&D) contract specialists for training engagements. This announcement comes after Steve Kapaun, former president and founder of TrainingPros, announced his retirement in December 2019. 

“I am blessed to hand the reins of TrainingPros to Leigh Anne, who is fiercely committed to serving current and future clients,” said Kapaun. “Our business was built through strong, personal client relationships. With her entrepreneurial spirit, business skills and laser focus on client service, Leigh Anne will take TrainingPros to the next level.”

Lankford brings 28 years of expertise in the learning and development space to her new role, including a background in instructional design, project management, e-learning and facilitation in the health care, software development, homeland security, finance and service industries. She joined TrainingPros in 2003 as a consultant and became a relationship manager in 2007, where she quickly earned recognition as a top performer before being named regional, then national, leader of the agency’s relationship management team. Additionally, prior to TrainingPros, she founded an e-learning tool company. 

“I’m passionately dedicated to TrainingPros’ clients, consultants and internal team members,” said Lankford. “As president, I will strive to maintain a culture of service and expertise to clients that is unequaled in the L&D staffing services market, while enabling everyone connected to TrainingPros to have the work-life balance they seek.”

Lankford received a bachelor’s degree in business management from West Georgia State University and a master’s degree in human resource development from Georgia State University. She also earned an Information Mapping® ProfessionalCertification and a Six Sigma Green Belt certification, and she is an active member of the Association for Talent Development.
