Scott Leese brings to his present position a wealth of experience in the small and medium-sized business space. From 2004 to 2010, he served in a series of management and executive-level sales positions at the technology companies Reply! Inc., LeapFish, and DotNext Inc., all located in northern California. During this time, Scott Leese focused his teams on selling online advertising and search services. While engaged in sales, he also sought new business opportunities by pursuing a number of vertical markets, such as real estate. In 2010 and 2011, Scott Leese shifted his focus to a new software-based product as Vice President of Sales for Santa Rosa, California-based Democrasoft Inc. While there, he increased market share for the company’s SaaS (software as a service) solution, which provides an innovative online platform for collaboration and voting. Responsible for business development and all aspects of sales, he identified new opportunities in the education vertical. He also worked with the team to foster successful Internet-based learning hubs. Mr. Leese holds a Master's degree in Learning and Instructional Technology from Arizona State University in Tempe.

Scott Leese graduated from Dominican University of California with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He eventually went on to earn a master’s degree in learning and instructional technology. As a student in San Rafael, California, Scott Leese was able to indulge his San Francisco Giant fan hood. In July 2013 the San Francisco Giants were honored at the White House for their 2012 World Series win. Given the poor current record of the Giants, a reminder of their 2012 run and some encouragement from the president could help turn the season around. While waiting to take the stage for the White House ceremony, President Obama reminded the team that they are a second half club. He astutely commented on the fact that the team’s 2010 and 2012 World Series Championships came after a hot second half of the season. During the ceremony President Obama was able to maintain the light-hearted, positive atmosphere by poking fun at player nicknames and reminiscing about the details of their World Series run. Giants fans can only hope the words of the president are strong enough to turn around the underachieving 2013 club.
