As a Client Manager at SIT, Leslie is responsible for creating and maintaining sustainable, long term partnerships with clients – new and old. To ensure achievement of client goals, she is naturally involved in every stage of our working process, from initiation through to planning, development and execution and will track project progress toward a successful finish.
Prior to joining SIT, Leslie worked in New York at several major Madison Avenue agencies with a focus on strategy and account management in the healthcare industry with companies such as Novartis, Genentech, Bristol Myers and also led several product launches there. As a professional, she mastered the esoteric art of juggling multiple moving parts and working across functions and with project partners, an ability also greatly in demand in major SIT innovation projects. She is a true team player and a great collaborator with plenty of gusto to last throughout the process and beyond.
Leslie has an M.A. in Organizational Behavior and Development from IDC Herzliya (’15) in Israel and a B.A. in International and Global Studies, with minors in Business and Anthropology from Brandeis University (’08).
To date, Leslie has lived and worked in three countries – Turkey, US and Israel; all of which feel like “home”. She is a culinary aspirer, loves playing the board game Taboo, the color purple, tackling crafty projects and cannot live without her two sisters.
