Leslie joined AdvanceLaw in 2019 after spending 16 years advising general counsel and chief compliance and ethics officers on corporate culture and risk management. Across that time, Leslie regularly spoke at executive conferences, authored articles for industry publications, and facilitated presentations for in-house legal and compliance teams.
Leslie most recently worked on the business development team at CEB (now Gartner) where he helped legal and compliance executives at Fortune 1000 companies identify opportunities to better manage relationships with outside counsel, improve department efficiency and productivity, and enhance service delivery to their internal clients.
Prior to his business development role, Leslie was product manager for CEB’s Compliance and Ethics Leadership Council (CELC), responsible for product development, go-to-market strategy, commercial enablement, and management of the advisory team. During Leslie’s role as product manager, CELC maintained one of the company’s highest client renewal rates, hit annual sales targets, and led the launch of a successful new product (RiskClarity).
Leslie spent nearly five years of his early career at the Ethics & Compliance Resource Center (now the Ethics & Compliance Initiative) where he helped organizations build and sustain high-quality ethics and compliance programs and cultures. He received his B.A. in Psychology from Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia, and his Masters in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Radford University in Radford, Virginia.
