CEO and Founder
Leo is the Founder and CEO of Patheos. Over the past 5 years, he conceived of, designed, founded and raised the capital for Patheos. Leo built the product and the business models, staffed the team, oversaw the day-to-day operations, and brought the business to sustainability. All of this was possible only by:
Creating mutually beneficial media partnerships with existing players, to quickly establish a new brand
Leveraging the latest technologies (including an innovative cloud-hosting model for the site) to create a cost-effective solution
Using the latest techniques in Social Media, to bring millions of people to this new brand, without spending a single dollar on advertising or key-words
Patheos is now the largest Religion and Spirituality site on the web, and the recognized brand leader in its space.
Before Patheos, Leo:
Graduated from Harvard University
Served as a Marine Corps officer, in combat, in the 1st Gulf War
Received an MBA in Finance
Worked as a Process and Technology Consultant at Andersen Consulting
Was a C-level officer at a public Internet software company (Vignette, NASD VIGN, acquired by Open Text), where he led, in turn, Engineering/IT, Products and Strategy, and Marketing.
Leo is a uniquely qualified expert at the intersections of Business, Finance, Media, Technology, and Religion. As a part of the Patheos Labs efforts, Leo works to help leaders of other emerging organizations get to the next level.
