Leo joined Cambridge Assessment from the Financial Services sector where he held senior strategy-related and commercial positions in large ‘blue chip’ organisations.

Before then he worked in similar roles in both the retail and media industries and spent much of his early career at Bain & Company, the strategic consultancy.

After graduating from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, Leo was initially employed in the UK and Japan as an engineer specialising in industrial robotics. He then gained a Daiwa Anglo Japanese Foundation scholarship which allowed him to study Japanese at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies and to work at the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry.

Leo joined us as Group Strategy Director in January 2015 and was made a member of the Corporate Board at the end of that year before being appointed Chief Executive of OCR in August of 2016.
