Ellen Leanse has built her career on creating loyalty for technology, consumer and membership enterprises.
During her ten years at Apple, Ellen championed product localization in Apple’s global markets, and—as Apple’s first User Evangelist—pioneered the company’s outreach to customer, enthusiast, and consultant communities. Her work since then has helped technology and consumer companies including Oracle, MCI, Samsung, HP and a range of venture-backed startups mobilize their best customers as advocates, viral marketers, and ambassadors of brand value. Constantly innovating to build customer loyalty and retention, she has guided numerous membership organizations, including user associations and social networks, in setting and achieving objectives for growth.
Ellen has balanced her work in high tech with Board roles for organizations supporting education and childrens’ mental health, through hands-on work with entrepreneurs in East Africa, and in competitive rowing. She was featured in an Inc. Magazine cover story on successful multitasking entrepreneurs.
