Stephan Leman

Senior Director, Brand Ecosystem & Experience Strategy

Over the past 16+ years, I have partnered with many of the most iconic brands in the world to create brand strategies and experiences that result in deeper consumer connections and greater brand affinity. As the Senior Director of Brand Ecosystem and Experience Strategy, I am always looking at how deeper human truths can bring alignment between client organizations and their customers through a holistic brand experience. This can be challenging, when organizations are large and siloed, but infusing synergy and direction across the organization through an inspiring purpose can lead to greater professional and personal satisfaction for everyone involved.

Originally hailing from the Chicagoland, I currently reside in Salt Lake City. I am a proud husband and father of 3, spending much of my time at my kid’s soccer games and ballet recitals. I am a big English soccer fan and do my best to sneak time for hiking, playing music, woodworking and playing various sports myself. My closest friends and family would describe me as an easy-going, jack of all trades – always actively pursuing many interests of all varieties.

I serve as a holistic change agent that strategically helps clients understand their target audience’s deepest needs so that we can collectively turn insights into impact throughout their organization.
