Leon oversees the content teams at Pioneer, ARC Media and WordSouth. Before joining Pioneer in 2017, Leon spent three decades at The Seattle Times, where he was an assistant managing editor on the forefront of change. His work included upholding standards, embracing digital and guiding the hands-on editing and presentation of Pulitzer Prize winning work. Since coming aboard Pioneer, Leon and his team have dreamed big as they’ve reshaped content, launched new magazine products and experimented with fresh ways of telling stories and engaging audiences. He is excited about the power of three as ARC Media, WordSouth and Pioneer join creatively. Leon holds a BA in Communications from California State University, Fullerton, along with a Minor in Psychology, which, he notes, comes in handy. Leon and his wife, Michelle, have two white fluffballs, Sasha and Nikki, and three adult children.
