Geile/Leon Marketing Communications

Welcome to G/L, Mary Sawyer!

January was a big month for Geile/Leon. Kathy Leonard, our VP of Public Relations, officially retired after 14 years with the company. We are sad to see her go, but hope that she’ll still pop in once in awhile for our Friday happy hour (when she’s not golfing or traveling, of course).

But, it’s true what they say, “When one door closes, another opens.” We’re excited to have Mary Sawyer as our new VP of Public Relations!


Mary brings more than 25 years of experience in marketing, media relations, corporate communications, employee communications, public relations counsel and issue management to G/L. She has worked private and publicly traded corporations, government agencies, higher education institutions and advertising agencies. Needless to say, with all of this experience we know Mary will be an integral part of the G/L team and the success of our clients.

Mary graduated from the University of Missouri with a journalism degree and from SLU with an MBA. She has three kids and lives in St. Louis County with her husband, Michael.

Welcome to the G/L team, Mary!
