Steven Leof


I have 40 years Corporate & Business Development experience helping create, shape and implement growth opportunities. A trusted problem-solver with strong diagnostic skills, I’m a highly effective communicator and a connector.

Strategy | Management | Marketing

Working in multinational, multicultural environments, I’ve spent my career adding value to a range of companies from early stage to blue chip, public and privately held. I work in the Technology, Media & Telecoms, Financial Services and Not-For-Profit sectors in the UK, the US, Mexico and elsewhere.

I think big but am ever pragmatic and offer whole-brained strategic thinking and doing – with an eye for detail.

Current Activity

For many years I’ve delivered senior management and shareholders with expert and flexible support in developing international markets. I’m currently developing Alumni Extras, a new venture of my own, and serving as a Non-Executive Director of UK Friends of WashU Limited, a US-UK dual qualified charity established to raise funds for Washington University in St. Louis.

Go To market

I’ve worked with senior executives to design and deploy programmes that help them, their teams and their organisations meet both strategic objectives and more immediate deliverables. 

Corporate alliances

I’ve put together and managed alliances with global, regional, local or specialist technology vendors which enabled them to extend the range of services, technologies and vertical industry expertise they offer as well as the range of geographies they serve.

I’ve represented and introduced new business to several leading IT Services in Latin America. These firms provide a broad range of Offshore and Near Shore Software Development, Application Maintenance and IT Infrastructure Support services.

With unexpected time on my hands during the first lockdown (March to June 2020), my exercise routine shifted to walking in the empty streets and parks of Central London. During this period, documenting scenes I’d not previously witnessed, I rediscovered my interest in street photography which continues.
