As a manager in the culture services department, Sam Leyendecker feels like he was born to serve the employees of Southwest Airlines. He grew up in Albuquerque New Mexico where his mom Carol was a Southwest reservations agent for 15 years.
Sam has spent his ten year career immersed in culture and employee engagement. Sam oversees Southwest’s culture committees, culture blitz appreciation events, and the official employee culture Facebook page. The efforts of culture services and the culture committees are a big reason Southwest Airlines continues to be a “best place to work.”
Sam currently lives in Dallas with his wife Lisa, and three boys: Luke (5), Jack (3), and baby Tommy (1).
