Tales from a Small Planet, a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization and premier expat resource website, has announced the selection of Leslie M. Jensen as its new executive director. Leslie will fill the vacancy created by Victoria H. Hess, long-time executive director and board member. The selection was made following a worldwide search and selection process, during which Leslie stood out for her extensive background in sales and enthusiasm for all things expat.
Leslie’s resume includes more than 10 years of sales and business development in sectors including banking and Internet technology, and she now is a small business owner navigating the intermittently challenging task of operating a small business while living abroad.
Tales from a Small Planet is also thrilled to announce the addition of Ásgeir Sigfússon as director of social media. Outside of volunteering with Tales, Ásgeir’s paying job is with the American Foreign Service Association, where he is the director of new media. He has many years of experience within the Foreign Service/expat world, and also brings a deep understanding of engaging audiences through social and other online media. Ásgeir is originally from Iceland and definitely considers himself an expat.
