Leon is the UK commercial buying manager and Tesco’s DE&I ambassador.
Previously working at Aldi, Woolworths Australia, Amazon and Morrisons, Leon’s expertise includes store operations, commercial buying, logistics and driving change for the black community and other under-represented groups.
Leon is an instrumental member of the Tesco Race and Ethnicity Network and the Black Voices advisory group, helping to elevate black voices and alleviate any concern held by black colleagues of not having their voices heard.
