The Miller Tanner difference is our people. That’s why we want to introduce you to our team of superstars that brings our corporate meetings and events to life for our clients.

Meet Leslie Holt

Tell us about your current role with MTA. What are your primary responsibilities?

My current role is billing analyst.  It’s my responsibility to bill the client post meeting.  I pull together all supporting documents and create a billing portfolio to present to the client with their final invoice.

How long have you been with MTA? I just began my 5th year in March.

What did you do before joining  MTA?   

Before joining MTA, the majority of my career has been as an operations financial analyst and payment coordinator. 

What do you feel are the most fulfilling aspects of your job? 

The most fulfilling aspect of my job is being a part of the teamwork required across all departments and to see the execution of the entire process come full circle.  I enjoy delivering a work product that the client can trust and rely on.

What are some ways that the Finance Department takes the burden off of the client when planning an event?  

Finance takes the burden off the client by closely monitoring the operational costs to make sure they stay within their budget and by providing a solid audit trail with 100% transparency in reporting such that the client knows it’s work they can trust.  In the end, the client has nothing more to do than to simply respond to an email from me to confirm everything is in order. 

What makes Miller Tanner stand out as meeting planning company?

What stands out is how we do what we do more efficiently and differently from our competitors.  I feel that MTA stands out as a meeting planning company by our seamless performance all over the world.  To be able to execute a flawless event regardless of where in the world it might be is impressive.  Additionally, MTA is working to provide our clients with an interactive experience by way of virtual and hybrid meetings as well as providing options for clients in areas of learning, training, and development of their teams.  MTA stands out because, for us, it’s not just about MTA being successful but also about how to take our clients to their next level of success with our products and offerings. 

Where do you live and what do you love most about your state/city?

I live in Murfreesboro, Tennessee just outside of Nashville which can boast that it’s the geographic center of the state.  The best thing about this area is the number of state parks and other points of interest which are easily accessible as a day trip by car. 

What do you do for fun?

For fun, I like to go out for live music and art exhibits.  I like to spend time with friends and family sharing a meal or maybe creating an impromptu dance party or game night and just enjoying each other’s company.  I also enjoy riding my bike.   

Anything else you’d like to add?

I love the unique culture and work-life balance that MTA has created by being a completely virtual company.  While we may be scattered all over the globe, there is a true sense of togetherness and teamwork when it comes to getting the job done.
