Leigh Niebuhr,
Principal & Portfolio Manager


Before joining Compass, Leigh managed over $5 billion in deposits for a large organization, but he missed the contact with clients. “What I love about this job is hearing all the different life stories and learning how clients overcome challenges and achieve success,” he says. Leigh’s economics background helps him appreciate how seemingly small and isolated market forces can gain momentum around the world, powerfully affecting many industry sectors. “The effect of capital in an efficient, free market economy is amazing,” he says. He and his wife are busy parents of two girls, “water bugs” who love to read and play with their good-natured dad. Leigh has a great sense of humor and a playful wit. Leigh is an avid runner and downhill skier and enjoys an afternoon of golf, but he is full of time for his clients and family.
