March 22, 2012

New York, NY – CLC Advisors, LLC is proud to announce and welcome Angela Leaney to the Advisory Board in the Investment & Growth Strategies area.

Ms. Leaney is currently the EVP of The World Famous Harlem Globetrotters and the former CMO of Newsweek. She previously spent eight years at MTV Networks, where she was SVP Creative Director, for Nickelodeon’s parents and preschool media. In her tenure there, she was responsible for brand strategy, image and promotional creative, helping to successfully launch and brand two new TV networks, launch one website, and re-launch the number one preschool TV network in the USA.

From 1990-1999, Ms. Leaney worked as an account director and account planner at the London offices of advertising agencies in the BBDO, Chiat and Interpublic networks. In 1996, she joined Ogilvy & Mather London as an account planner and then in 1999, she moved to the agency’s office in Los Angeles as Agency Partner and Head of Account Planning and Research.

Born in London, Ms. Leaney earned her Bachelor of Arts with Honors degree in Medieval and Modern History at University College London. She is now a proud permanent resident alien with an American husband and first grader whom she is teaching the rules of cricket and the correct pronunciation of the word “tomato.” She cannot spin a basketball on her finger. She cannot dunk. She cannot shoot a free throw. But she will not stop trying until she can.

CLC Advisors, LLC CEO Cindy Chin says, “Angela brings an energy level and vitality that is inspiring for artists and entrepreneurs alike. Her enthusiasm carries through when she interacts with people and her extensive experience inside board rooms and executive management will bring a level of expertise in growth to start-up ventures.”
