Leigh has built a track record of over 15 years in end-to-end strategic marketing and communications leadership, pursuing my personal professional vision of "Building Influential Brands To Influence The World".

Leigh is currently the Head of Communications for Singapore and Malaysia at Uber.

Prior to this, he was at Shell; leading Issues Management for the Asia Pacific region and Media Relations for Malaysia.

Before Shell, Leigh led Communications for Microsoft in Malaysia, where his work was recognized with global, regional and industry awards - with some even becoming company-wide best practices today.

He has also worked in the banking and financial services sector where he led branding, marketing communications, publicity and CSR teams. Of note, he led these functions through a 16-month, dramatic bank merger as well as the integration process that followed.

Leigh's professional experience includes being a communication strategist for a private think-tank/consultancy to the Malaysian Government, particularly the Prime Minister's Office as well as being a business owner: consulting on business communications on both agency- and client-side across various sectors such as communication, education, lifestyle, manufacturing, property, services, technology and non-profits.

Leigh completed his tertiary education in the USA, completing an MA in Corporate Communications and a double BA in Speech Communications and Philosophy. He also attended Oxford University, UK for a stint, as part of an Honors Exchange Program.

Leigh is also an avid supporter and volunteer with The Boys Brigade Asia, a youth development organization originating from the UK and spanning Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand as well as Malaysia.

By his own admission, Leigh is a self-professed geek.
