As the marketing and media director for Breakbulk, Leslie brings more than 20 years of experience to the job having run marketing for several notable publications, including Sunset Magazine. She created the social media presence and managed the writers for a New York-based internet company whose combined properties tallied millions of pageviews per month.
Her official Breakbulk career started as a side hustle when she became the news writer for the company, but she grew up immersed in the project logistics world thanks to her father, John Amos who was head of logistics at Bechtel Corp. When a marketing position became available, she jumped at the opportunity to make a bigger contribution to Breakbulk Events & Media.
Today, her innovations include Breakbulk Studios, Breakbulk on the Rise, Breakbulk Veterans and Women in Breakbulk, a cause she is passionate about. Leslie is Breakbulk’s lead interviewer whose skills in this area became even more valuable during the pandemic. She is known throughout the industry as an interviewer who is knowledgeable about the industry, and most important, brings out her guests’ most relevant insights and information.
Leslie is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles and now resides in Salt Lake City, Utah.
