Leo Morejon is an award-winning marketer, sales leader and speaker with a Bachelor's in Sales and Marketing. Leo attributes his success to always valuing people and relationships and focusing on being a trusted advisor above all else.
Born in New Jersey, Leo started his career in social media marketing before the advent of Facebook and Twitter. Those nascent years in the field helped him begin to form the basis of what would become his social media philosophy: that these technologies are an expansion of what humans have always done - connect, share and build relationships - now simply migrating online.
His career began in the Emerging Media department at JWT's New York offices, before joining the Brand Strategy and Emerging Media department at 360i. There, he pioneered real-time social media marketing with his work on Oreo, securing the first social media Guinness World Record and the famous Oreo Super Bowl Blackout Tweet, among other notable campaigns. He has worked with brands such as JELL-O, Hot Wheels and Coca-Cola, and he has won several awards including a Cannes Lio, CLIO Award and a Facebook Studio Award.
Leo's professional focus is on how the intersection of different technologies can be leveraged to support both businesses and people. The passion for this space led him to a position at global professional services company Accenture, and later leadership positions at Expion/Sysomos (social media management and research platform). He worked across marketing, change management, and sales. Using his own unique sales methodology focused on storytelling, active listening and being a trusted adviser, Leo secured millions of dollars in business from industry leaders such as Mondelez, Subway and The Estee Lauder Companies and trained over 200 salespeople. He also spent time in sales and marketing leadership positions for artificial intelligence and blockchain startups.
Today Leo combines his marketing and sales knowledge to help people in both fields reach their full potential by speaking around the world, mentoring, consulting, blogging and podcasting.
