Tech start-ups are the focus of Venice Beach based entrepreneur, Colby Leachman.
This young professional is building his career and portfolio directly in the center of the tech world’s start-up hotspot. So far, he’s already worked with some pretty big names, the likes of Oracle and Evenly (since acquired by Square, a leader in the Point of Sale industry). He currently stands as a Sales Executive and Team Lead at Treez Inc., a company balancing his interests of tech and innovation.
From day one, start-up culture has fascinated Colby Leachman. Initially, he set his sights on working in the tech realm. His first taste of the tech world came with his Marketing Analyst position at Evenly in 2013. This experience proved valuable to Leachman, as it taught him a great deal about the marketing aspects of innovative tech approaches. As a Marketing Analyst, he conducted ethnographic marketing and developed the social media marketing strategy that would introduce Evenly to the world. Although his role was primarily in the marketing department, Leachman also dabbled in the more technical aspects of the business.
Colby Leachman cites his experience at Evenly as one of the major turning points in the focus of his career. The adventure, however, truly began when he took on a role at Oracle in Boston, MA. For nearly four years, he climbed up the ladder at Oracle, gaining vital expertise along the way. Roles he maintained included:
- Associate Account Executive (2014 – 2016)
- Regional Business Development Manager (2016 – 2017)
- Senior Account Executive (2017 – 2018)
Leachman also received recognition for his excellence while at Oracle. He was the recipient of Oracle Excellence Award (Q1FY17), RM of the Quarter (Q1FY17) and RM of the Quarter (Q3FY17).
With his promotion to Senior Account Executive, Colby Leachman relocated to Santa Monica, CA. His tie to the start-up scene of California has been inherent to his identity ever since! Now, he’s developing his skills in unison with a new and innovative industry with his role as Regional Sales Director at Treez Inc.
In his down time, Leachman enjoys immersing himself in the local culture. In particular, he has become something of an avid surfer, hitting the beach at least three times a week to perfect his skills. Diving deep into new territory is exciting to this entrepreneur, who hopes to launch his own start-up in the near future!
