Partner & Chief Operating Officer, Transite Technology
With more than 20 years of global marketing and corporate communications experience, Les has held senior management roles at Verizon, SAS and Motricity. Within these organizations, he played a management role in creating, and developing corporate social responsibility functions--each having a primary focus on strengthening local K-12 education programs. Les brings a corporate community relations perspective to SKOA which is valuable as the organization looks at avenues for sponsorship and funding. Over the years, he has been a consistent volunteer in K-12 public schools and, though his children who play soccer, he has seen the positive impact that sports has on character development. At Transite, Les blends his range of prior roles and responsibilities to work with the Transite management team and employees to optimize the organization’s ability to attract and retain customers and world-class employees; grow revenues and market footprint; and to cement the company’s market position.
