Executive Vice President
As an expert in change management, Lesli Gee helps organizations achieve their full potential. “Change management and communication are two sides of the same coin. You can’t achieve change without communicating effectively, but communication alone won’t transform organizations unless you also shift strategy, structure and culture,” she said. “I love helping organizations do all of that.”
Lesli, who joined ROI Communication in 2002, has spent more than two decades helping executives design and execute large-scale change initiatives to strengthen organizational culture, streamline processes and improve performance. She has worked closely with leaders at Adobe, Cisco, Gap, Hewlett-Packard, PepsiCo, Safeway, Toyota, Walgreens and other leading companies to help their organizations adapt to new challenges and achieve their business goals.
Prior to joining ROI Communication, Lesli was the director of Internal Communications and Organizational Development for Maxtor Corporation, where she built internal communication, organizational development and training capabilities following the $6 billion Maxtor-Quantum HDD merger. Earlier, Lesli worked as director of Talent Development at Quantum Corporation, and managed Aetna Life & Casualty’s Training and Development Field Services team.
Lesli earned a B.S. in Business Administration from University of California, Berkeley, and an M.S. in Organization Development from the University of San Francisco. She is also past president of the Mt. Diablo Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development. She has won numerous industry awards for her work, and in 2012 was named as one of the “Outstanding 50 Asian Americans in Business.”
When she’s not advising clients, Lesli enjoys hiking, biking, skiing and camping with her family, and runs marathons to raise money for charity.
