His career started as a management trainee in SilkAir and his 9-year career exposed him to a diverse portfolio of responsibilities including overseas manager roles in Thailand and Indonesia, Public Relations, Operatons and Sales & Marketing where he oversaw the re-launch of the SilkAir brand.
After a brief foray into the private banking space, Leslie joined the Jetstar Group and took on senior management responsibilities in the Jetstar Group including Head of Commercial for Jetstar Asia and Regional General Manager for Southeast Asia.
