Leanne Emery Hunter, Chief Marketing & Client Officer, Yes4Youth
Leanne has worked in industries from telecoms to professional services to education. She has always been passionate about youth development (and particularly young women) and education, so she feels like she has really  found her home now at Yes.

Leanne wants to be a part of the solution in South Africa and cares deeply about youth empowerment. She is fortunate to work in an organisation which challenges her as a marketer and leader daily, but also provides her with the opportunity to build things from the ground up and feeds into her purpose.

Leanne says “It’s much easier to get up every day when you know that what you do makes a real meaningful impact and this helps me through the tough days.”
