Leroy Presley: Curiosity
Curiosity is the primary strength Leroy brings to the table. Questions will always need to be answered and he’s one that will dive into the rabbit hole to find the answers with evidence on the other side. He actively listens to each members’ experiences and asks questions to raise awareness about the future and how it can be more vibrant. Leroy continues to bring enthusiastic ideas to UPA which creates an innovate path forward to reach new members in the packaging industry.
Leroy has a dual bachelor’s degree specializing in Management and International Business from Florida International University in Miami, FL. He was able to maintain a position through college as an associate at one of the largest retail supermarket chains in the Southeastern United States. Upon graduation, he found a position at Intertape Polymer Group (IPG) as a Market Research Analyst. Leroy’s primary function is to gather strategic information about direct and indirect vertical markets through a variety of avenues and provide critical knowledge to IPG management teams. He is also an active member in the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Group (YPG) which allow him to be a leader while continuing to learn in his career within the packaging industry.
