Jeff Leshay began his career as a journalist with The Associated Press, cutting his teeth in the Philippines by covering the violent turmoil that led to the overthrow of President Ferdinand Marcos. He later worked as an award-winning TV news reporter and anchor at ABC and NBC stations, CNBC and Fox News. Following a decade in TV news, Jeff served in leadership positions at three of the world's largest public relations firms and as the head of communications and public affairs at two public companies.
