Leo is known in Motor Sport circles as a Journalist, Competitor, Commentator and Marketing Guru, and he has been extremely successful this year in promoting the Formula Sheane Class and establishing the newmotorsport.ie website. Coupled with this is his background in the Motor Industry through Avon Tyres and more recently Fiat, where he has worked for 12 years as Business Development Manager for Sales & Fleet.

Speaking of the appointment, Mondello Park Managing Director John Morris said: “When I heard Fiat Group was restructuring a few months ago, I knew it was an opportunity to try and bring Leo to Mondello and I’m delighted we’ve been successful in that regard. He has a detailed knowledge of everything we do at Mondello and a proven Sales and Marketing pedigree and I’m confident he will be a huge asset to the circuit”.

Leo, a self confessed Motorsport Anorak was equally enthusiastic and said of his appointment: “I have been going to Mondello Park since I was a child and subsequently raced successfully and commentated there. To join the team at the venue is a dream come true for me. I am looking forward to the new and exciting challenges ahead.”
