Chief Strategy Officer
Leo is the head of strategy at The French Keys. Leo joined us after working as a private equity analyst for the $230 billion firm Mubadala.
While we have been offering consulting services since 2017, Leo transformed our consulting practice. He brought with him the years of experience he has to advise multi-billion-dollar corporate leadership on optimizing their organizations to deliver on the bottom line. He has experience managing investor relations, organizing financing with banks, raising capital from private equity and venture capital, reviewing contractual agreements, building financial models, producing business plans for new ventures, and managing business-to-government relations.
Before working in private equity, Leo was a researcher in decision science at the London School of Economics. At the LSE, he launched and managed the Behavioural Research Laboratory, which is the LSE’s in-house social science research center. At the BRL, he was an expert in study design and statistical analyses and helped facilitate economic, psychological, sociological, and anthropological research across the university. While a researcher in decision science at the LSE, he consulted for the National Health Service of the United Kingdom on the choice architecture of their main website, with the goal of optimally directing British citizens to hospitals that fit their needs.
Leo holds degrees in decision science and business administration from the London School of Economics and Carnegie Mellon University.
