Leslie Jacobs is a successful businesswoman, entrepreneur, and founder of The Jacobs Agency, which specializes in the branding, marketing, and promotion of small to mid-size businesses.
Leslie began her professional career at one of the most prestigious global advertising agencies, Young and Rubicam (Y&R), where she helped coordinate the creative flow of major ad campaigns for top corporate clients including AT&T, Accenture, Dannon, Jell-O, and Johnson & Johnson. During her tenure at Y&R, Leslie developed a broad set of skills including the ability to successfully manage multi-faceted and complex projects, as well as a proficiency in business development, marketing and branding.
After building a 20-year career at Y&R, Leslie joined a global executive search firm where she was a project management lead placing C-Suite officers in Fortune 500 companies which further solidified her reputation for excellence and delivering results. She identified a need to provide consulting and brand marketing services to clients with high-net-worth potential who valued her professionalism and the personal touch she became known for. Leslie pursued her passion and ultimately ventured out on her own and launched The Jacobs Agency.
The Jacobs Agency has since expanded to include divisions for international travel, the sale of high-end luxury goods, and premiere events.
Leslie proudly serves on the Board of Directors for 1WorldFest Global, a non-profit organization. Leslie is an active member of community and has volunteered with many non-profit organizations that help families of children with disabilities, led peer support workshops, and organized fundraiser walks, toy drives and other events. She contributed to the fundraising for elected official, Alicia Hyndman, and was asked to be a speaker for her empowerment panel for women in business, earning her an award and recognition. Leslie has been influential and instrumental in promoting women in business and seeks to empower women and promote youth in her community.
Leslie is the devoted mother of two children and two granddaughters and enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
