It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Lemont Watson and Watson Consulting for your consulting needs.

Mr. Watson and I have known each other for nearly 30 years. He currently serves as the Director of Administration and Finance at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, where I am honored to serve as the Social Services and Community Outreach Manager. 

I thoroughly enjoy my time working under Mr. Watson’s leadership, and have come to know him as the foundation to our outstanding team. He is an effective leader because of his integrity, ability to inspire the team, and commitment and passion for his work. Beyond that, he has a wealth of experience and an impressive solution-focused approach that always results in him being able to offer wise counsel on hard decisions.

Mr. Watson’s knowledge of finance and expertise in staff management is a huge part of Fellowship’s success today. He consistently puts this skill set to work in order to ensure that staff feel supported and empowered while balancing the finances of the church.

Along with his undeniable work ethic, Mr. Watson has always been an absolute joy to work with. He is a true team leader, and always manages to foster a positive work environment, bringing the best out of all of the team members.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Mr. Watson and Watson Consulting. As a dedicated and knowledgeable consultant and an all-around great person, I know that his expertise will be beneficial.

Lemont Watson has worked at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church as the Director of Administration and Finance for the past 17 years. Lemont has been highly instrumental in hiring key staff members as well as overseeing the day to day operations of a very diverse non-profit organization that serves well over 3200 members. He has also served as the Senior Advisor to our current CEO during his 20 years here. He has effectively served three generations of pastoral leadership, and is the driving force behind our multi-million dollar church wide renovation project. 

During Lemont’s time here at Fellowship, he has developed and cultivated a strong rapport with leaders from various organizations in Chicago and beyond. He is highly dedicated, a self-starter, able to be self-managed and very diligent in his responsibilities, while always performing to the highest standards. I am constantly amazed by the kind of business mind he has and the advice he provides to various civic and religious leaders through Watson Consulting. 

Lemont has been very involved in mentoring and supporting a number of our high school and college readiness students/members as they prepare to graduate high school, pursue college and ultimately obtain their undergraduate degree. I’ve had the pleasure to witness up close and personal Lemont’s talents and willingness to always go the extra mile without question. He’s an exceptional leader who has been a valuable asset to our organization. Lemont is admired and respected by his colleagues.  I am most certain Lemont would make significant contributions to respected leaders seeking to grow their organizations and add tremendous value as CEO of Watson Consulting.
