Head of Commercial Solutions and Strategy
RFRSH

Leo is the head of commercial solutions and strategy for RFRSH Entertainment a leading esports organisation who create, own and operate world-class esports teams and tournaments.  Leo’s commercial background was developed within traditional sports, heading up new business for Envision Virgin Racing Formula E Team, and before that securing new sponsors for The English FA across the England Football Teams, The FA Cup and grassroots football.  Leo is also a board member of World at Play, a charity who use sport and play to educate and empower vulnerable children and refugees in Eastern Europe and Africa. 

"I’m really excited to see how far the needle has moved in a world which moves at such a lightening pace it’s hard to keep up, let alone lead.  I’ll particularly be looking out for how innovative thinking and sharp execution have weaponised platforms in new ways or to achieve remarkable results.  These awards are crucial not only to reward and reflect on the hard work of so many people, brands and agencies; perhaps most importantly they allow us to asses who they represent and what those ambitions were, as the industry encompasses such a broad church, from bricks and mortar retailers to esports organisations."
