New Year, New Perspectives – Kathy Flinn

It’s a new year, folks, and we’ve got some new faces at L&P! During the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to several of our recent hires and their thoughts on the year ahead.

Meet Kathy Flinn, Internal Auditor II at Leggett & Platt. She started with us in November.


What brought you to Leggett?
Prior to Leggett, I worked as the Finance Director for a non-profit organization. This position was a new and exciting opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. I had applied at Leggett several years ago as well, and I’ve been intrigued by the company ever since.

What’s something surprising about you?
I have two sons and three grandchildren. My granddaughter is nonverbal, so we’re all learning sign language to communicate with her. We’re taking it in little bits at a time. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband. We recently went to Hawaii, which was my favorite vacation by far.

What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
With only a month under my belt, I’m eager to learn more about Leggett! I had no idea the scope of the company, and I still feel like I have a lot to learn. I also want to be the best support I can be for the Internal Audit team as I start to travel to different branches for audit trips in 2018.
