Jennifer Leite Controller

With 20 years in the field of accounting and six as controller, Jennifer Leite values the responsibility and the opportunity  that the role gives her to learn and connect with every facet of the company. 

Throughout the pandemic, Jen relied on that insight, her financial background, and her own creativity as a core contributor to the innovation team that helped Metro use the downtime to re-invent itself with new services for customers. Today, as events return, Metro is thriving, stronger and better than ever. Jen now oversees a smart and strategic financial framework that underpins the rapidly expanding organization.

Outside the office, family comes first, and the Portugal native returns every year to visit many of her close relatives still living in the Valenca region (in the very northern point of Portugal, bordering Spain). 

The Saint Leo University graduate reads, writes and speaks Portuguese and Spanish fluently, and now resides in Union, NJ. 

Though Jen is all business when it comes to Metro’s finances, she loves a good time (and sharing it with others). She crochets to relax, and is a huge fan of music, country concerts, corn hole, and reality TV.

“The silver lining of the virus for us was the opportunity to take a step back and really examine our mission, our capabilities and how we can best serve our customers. We’re fortunate that we were able to weather the storm. And now, the skies have never been clearer.”
