Marjorie Leonidas

CEO at Taggstar


My career took off when I took myself post UC Berkeley to Hong Kong and started a garment manufacturing agency. Supplying major brands and employing 60 people in three countries, I quickly learned how to spin lots of plates at the same time. Also, I saw at first hand the social and environmental impact of the fashion industry - my real life introduction to sustainability. Just in time for the dot com boom, I pivoted from fashion to technology, eventually joining BT to develop its Wifi business in the UK. In 2007, Steve Jobs launched the iPhone and changed my life. Demand for Wifi took off. A standout memory will always be the London 2012 Olympic Games, where wifi helped make it the ‘most connected Games ever’.
