Sean Bestor

Copywriter

If it has words, chances are Sean’s written it. As an award-winning copywriter, Sean has shaped words into emails, social media posts, speeches, letters, video scripts, sales collateral, print advertisements, banner ads, web copy, meta descriptions, press releases, client pitches, blog posts and everything in between.

What Makes Him Tick:
The relationship between memorable copy and copy that gets results. Even the most remarkable tag lines and prose can fall flat on action, yet the most commonplace phrase can prompt tremendous results. He’s on a never-ending quest to find that sweet spot.

Let’s Get Personal:
When he isn’t scouring law books to find a way to legally marry Netflix, Sean enjoys: biking short distances and gasping for air; frequenting craft breweries to the point where at least one server will greet him with a warm “Sir, we’re closed...”; daily meditations on the plight of being a Minnesota sports fan.

Jeff Wenberg

Content Marketer

Jeff is the voice behind many of LeadPages’s videos and tutorials. Drawing on his creative background as a songwriter and musician, Jeff aims to create videos and content that are both dynamic and engaging while also telling a story in a short and sweet package. His perfectionism, while sometimes a curse, drives him to chip away at the content until he can discover the most clear and concise way to put information out there. He loves what he gets to do every day, and it really shows in all of his projects.

What Makes Him Tick:
With all kinds of ideas floating in his head, implementing, being creative and getting them out of there is a necessity.

Let’s Get Personal:
When Jeff isn’t creating videos, he loves to write, record, and perform music with his band. He also loves embarking on new adventures that bring new experiences. Life’s different experiences are what it’s all about. Getting married, having 3 crazy cats, and awesome family and friends help keep the new adventures coming.

Bogdan brings his fiercely logical mind and wicked intelligence into all of his development work. Specializing in analytics (among many other things), he loves to wrestle numbers, analytics, split tests, and more into code so brilliant it shines. Other developers stand back in wonder…

What Makes Him Tick:
Bringing measurable, methodical, logical order to chaotic numbers and testing results.

Bogdan received his first computer when he was just 6 years old. The main reason he got one so early was because he was spending too much time at his friends’ houses since they were older and already had computers. He got hooked…and his parents gave in!

When he’s not geeking out on the computer, Bogdan indulges in his love of music and plays a bit of guitar and some piano.

He believes that there isn’t a problem that can’t be solved with some good listening, constructive feedback and a dedication to doing not just the best thing but also the right thing by everyone involved.

What Makes Him Tick:
Getting things done and making that customer sing your praises. Nothing makes Will happier then a customer walking away satisfied and understanding, no matter what.

Let’s Get Personal:
Will has an unending love of knowledge and why things work the way they do, including people. He’s fascinated by new gadgets, new technologies and new ways to make life easier and simpler. Naturally, he has an interest in science, specifically theoretical physics and history. Beyond knowing that “it is,” the unending search for “why it is” propels him. Will also has a lifelong love of video games, film, books and the grand adventures they take him on. He may also have a bit of a love for a galaxy far, far away…

Javier Menegotti

Customer Happiness Specialist

Javier brings over 12 years of support and project management skills within the leadership training industry to LeadPages. His dedication to educating customers and getting to the bottom of even the most complex issues shines through in all of his interactions. Quick with a smile and always happy to lend a hand, Javier provides support and encouragement to our amazing customers and his team members alike.

What Makes Him Tick:
Nothing makes Javier happier than walking a customer through a task they they were afraid to tackle and making them feel like a technology rockstar.

Let’s Get Personal:
A native of Argentina, Javier is passionate about both soccer and barbecues. When he’s not working you can often find him tuned into a game or sporting event in one form or another, much to the dismay of his wife. He stays active by playing outdoor and indoor soccer and hanging out with his two teenage boys.

Helping our LeadPages’ customers. Many of our customers call Lynda their personal superhero. We agree!

Let’s Get personal:
Lynda lives with her seriously amazing husband and two teenage boys in a tiny but beautiful town in Southwestern Ontario (Canada).

She wants to love running (so far it still kind of sucks) and hopes to run her first 5K soon.

Drew Mooney

Customer Happiness Specialist

Drew is one of the many smiling faces on the LeadPages Customer Happiness team. He loves being at the intersection of product and people. Drew is amazed at the way technology is changing our world, and he is proud and thrilled to help shape that change.

What Makes Him Tick:
Seeing someone light up with happiness, a breezy day spent in the forest, and catching a new movie in theaters.

Let’s Get Personal:
Drew loves spending time with his family, exploring the countryside on his bicycle, and planning the next big crazy athletic adventure (the kind of adventure that normal people shake their heads at). Drew once tried growing a mohawk; he highly recommends you give it a shot, too.

Allegra Sinclair

Customer Happiness Specialist

Allegra brings over 15 years of experience with all things geeky, communications and training to her work at LeadPages. She views technical problems as jigsaw puzzles and delights in making the pieces fit together so that customers feel empowered. Her past experience at organizations like Intel and General Mills has provided her numerous opportunities to solve problems and generate positive results. A natural conflict-resolver and customer advocate, she gets excited by helping people use technology to transform their businesses.

What Makes Her Tick:
Making complex things simple. She believes there is nothing better than breaking something down into bite-sized chunks and seeing the lights go on for someone. It is in that moment that you KNOW you just made a difference and that’s magic.

Let’s Get Personal:
Allegra eats, breathes, and sleeps football from the first pre-season game through the SuperBowl! (She once broke up with a guy because she found out he was a Cowboys fan, but who can blame her?) When the NFL is not in season she cheers for her Minnesota Lynx because North Carolina doesn’t have a WNBA team. Besides being an avid sports fan, she loves spending time with her family, tinkering with WordPress websites, volunteering with Dress for Success, and plotting an upcoming appearance on So You Think You Can Dance, the Rhythmless Edition.

What Makes Her Tick:
Constantly being challenged, learning new technology and troubleshooting.

Let’s Get Personal:
Carolyn has an amazing husband and three beautiful daughters. On her downtime she loves spending time with her family. She is not afraid to say that she is a huge Harry Potter™ geek, and along her family, has the goal of making it over to England (eventually) to tour the Leavesden Film Studios and Alnwick Castle.

Anna Talakai

Support Performance & Retention Coordinator

Anna is passionate about technology and customer experience. She loves to get customer feedback to create innovative initiatives that exceed customer expectations and build lifetime relationships.

What Makes Her Tick:
Challenging the status quo to produce the best customer experience possible.

Let’s Get Personal:
Anna enjoys creating tribal art pieces that keep her connected with her culture. She also enjoys seeing a blank canvas take on new life and seeing a finished product bring life to an empty space.

Austin Tang

Customer Happiness Specialist

Austin possesses the ultimate power of positivity and a strong technical background. A hearty proponent of achieving goals through teamwork, he has an overwhelming belief in and an endearing attitude towards people coupled with a strong desire to see everyone succeed. He loves adding as many new tools towards his technical tool belt that he can get his hands on, and thrives in a fast-paced, technology driven environment.

What Makes Him Tick:
That beautiful aha moment where every piece lines up before your eyes and you connect every dot. Where you proudly put your fist in the air and exclaim, “I got it!”

Let’s Get Personal:
Austin grew up loving all things music and traveled around the country for many years as a touring musician. When he isn’t out being an extrovert, he loves to dive into the wonderful, all-encompassing world of video games, and lose a weekend or two to his computer screen.

Jakki Behan

Office Community Champion

Jakki is the go-to-gal in the office for anything and everything. She loves bringing people together and making life easier for everyone, whether that means ordering equipment and supplies, planning a killer office party, researching software and vendor options, or setting up a group lunch (and believe us, it’s the good stuff!).

What Makes Her Tick:
Talking to everyone whether she knows them or not.

Let’s Get Personal:
Jakki likes to keep busy with weekly trivia nights, week long board game sessions, and friendly Xbox vs PlayStation debates (360, obviously). She also likes pretending to cook and traveling with just a backpack. As a former flight attendant, she knows all the ways to get from point A to point B without breaking a sweat.

Ann Brown

Amazing and Outstanding Assistant

Ann brings 20 plus years of executive administrative experience to the team. She loves to make lists, organize projects, and make the lives of her co-workers easier and stress-free. She is Tracy’s right-hand (arm, leg, right-everything) and loves to amaze her on a daily basis with her admin smarts and savvy, and has in-depth knowledge of so many web apps it would make your head spin to list them all.

What Makes Her Tick:
Being the “in the background” person who solves the challenge or problem at hand.

Let’s Get Personal:
Ann lives in Cleveland and loves to write (never enough time for that), read (never enough time for that either), and create delicious vegan dishes, (there’s always enough time for that). She spends as much time as possible in the Catskills Mountains, her favorite vacation spot.

Quote:

Clay Collins

Co-Founder & CEO

Clay is compelled by a vision to provide simple & beautiful software that allows entrepreneurs to attract an audience, build their list, and generate revenue. And he’s determined to fulfill this vision with integrity and in a way that serves LeadPages’s customers to the highest degree possible.

Clay left home at age 15 to start his first software company and (excluding his college years) has been a hard-core entrepreneur ever since. He’s has been behind the scenes (advising and writing copy) for some of the highest grossing information marketing campaigns on the internet.

Clay knows firsthand that software for marketers is generally poor in quality. And he’s happy that LeadPages is changing that by creating insanely useful–but technologically sound–tools that work almost instantly and make life easier.

He is a “product guy” through and through (as well as the driving force behind marketing at LeadPages™).

What Makes Him Tick:
Clay wrote an incredibly long-winded (but somewhat outdated) answer to that question here.

Let’s Get Personal:
When he’s not obsessing about LeadPages’s products, Clay likes to spend his time hiking, sleeping, drinking craft beer, backpacking, hanging out with family, and trying to suck less at bouldering.

Quote:

I like Choco Tacos.

Janet Dapirano

Administrative Project Manager

Janet brings her 10 plus years of experience in software tech support to our customer support team. Her passion is customer service and she loves keeping our LeadPages™ customers happy. No problem is too tech-y for her, and the harder the issue, the more her inner geek girl comes out! She’ll go as deep as she needs to in order to solve even the most challenging of issues.

What Makes Her Tick:
Learning new cool computer programs and games, geeking out on how they work, and helping our LeadPages customers.

Let’s Get Personal:
When she’s not sitting in front of her computer, she is hanging out with her family. She loves to take trips to the coast and is a big fan of the San Francisco Giants and Forty Niner’s. She has a cat named Zuko and an 8-pound dog named Kipper. She lives in beautiful Northern California very close to the Napa wineries. Yes, she loves wine!

Phylicia loves to drink wine (but not while she’s working!).

What Makes Her Tick:
Taking exceptional care of our customers makes Phylicia feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Let’s Get Personal:
Phylicia has a wonderful family that she loves spending time with. When Phylicia is not with her family, she is found spending time with friends, going to sporting events, traveling, exploring vineyards, and hiking the beautiful mountains in her backyard.

Tiffany Lewandowski

Technical Recruiter

Tiffany brings over 5 years of industry experience recruiting Software Engineers and Developers, Quality Assurance, Technical Support, and Management level professionals in a wide range of technical backgrounds. She flourishes in any opportunity to meet new people where she can build meaningful relationships, play “matchmaker" to find a great fit for a job, and explore the possibility of bringing out hidden potential!

What Makes Her Tick:
Any kind of scientific talk having to do with genetics, environmental threats, conservation measures, or sustainable ways of living.

Let's Get Personal:
When she’s not working, Tiffany is out seizing the moment with her husband and two young kids. She’s a competitive golfer (and pretty much any other sport/game she plays), advocate of the honeybees, and is passionate about life and living it to the fullest!

What Makes Her Tick:
Victoria enjoys creating and fostering community, inside and outside of LeadPages.

Let’s Get personal:
You can count on Victoria if ever you’re in need of a good pun. She’s always up for a game of Scrabble (and will probably beat you!). On a more serious note, Victoria is the Chair of a grant-giving foundation whose mission is to train youth and young adult social justice leaders. In the summertime – Victoria hails from Minneapolis, MN – you will likely find Victoria out on a bike ride between 6 and 8:00PM. And she makes awesome banana bread!

1. Strategic Initiatives. Tracy partners up with others to drive decisions and then co-creates, communicates and executes strategic initiatives at LeadPages.

What Makes Her Tick:

Let’s Get personal:
When she’s not pouring her heart into LeadPages™, she loves to hang out with her husband (who loves to cook great vegetarian meals for her) and their crazy dog. She spends her free time hiking with friends, reading voraciously, and writing about the value of culture and core values.

Doug Storbeck

Director of Operations

As a kid, Doug was always taking things apart to understand how they worked, not realizing that when you take something apart, said thing loses its essential properties. Putting those things back together was how he got his start in understanding all things operational. Throughout his career, he’s been obsessed with how companies (er, things) run - whether it be a payroll provider, a hospitality company or even his own private preschool. His uncanny ability to view everything as a process has enabled him to bring a unique perspective to just about any situation.

What Makes Him Tick:
Seeking to understand the effects of the sum of the parts on the whole.

Let's Get Personal:
Doug finds great joy and happiness spending time with his family and giving back to his community.  Whether it’s a casual family stroll with the dog, coaching hockey, or teaching Junior Achievement at the local elementary, he’s always looking for ways to make a difference.
