We founded Leesa with a simple goal: to help people sleep better.
We’ve started with a beautifully designed and crafted mattress that meets the needs of almost everyone and an online store that makes buying a mattress simple and hassle free.Join the team
Our mission is to help people sleep better. We design, create and sell thoughtful products delivered straight to your home. Customer experience is at the heart of everything we do and we run our company with integrity for our customers, suppliers, and employees.
We give back by supporting people who struggle to afford a place to rest their head at night.
Meet the team
Co-Founder & CEO
David is driven by his passion for his family, his friends, and his work. He expects a lot of himself and of others, which has been the driving force behind his success. David would say simply that he’s been lucky to work with great people doing what he loves. He has helped bring new ideas to life, from his early days as a strategy consultant to the start of his entrepreneurial journey more than twenty years ago. He travels the world in pursuit of his passion, and it’s not unusual to find him cycling through the desert in Israel with one of his daughters one week and in a business meeting in London the next. David describes Leesa as a combination of a great idea, a strong management team, a world-class product, and the best business model he has ever been involved in.
Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer
Jamie is a family man who loves mattresses. Or maybe it’s the other way around! He’s been dedicated to both for a long time. 28 years in fact. Having designed mattresses for years, Jamie rose to the challenge of creating a completely new mattress that offered an extraordinary sleep experience in a “shippable form” for a fraction of the price of similar mattresses sold in mattress stores. After years in a family mattress business Jamie is thriving among the young Leesa team. Jamie famously once asked the team “what’s an influencer?” Having built Leesa predominantly through on-line word-of-mouth sharing, Jamie gets it now – even if the team still has fun at his expense from time-to-time. After all, he is our elder statesman.
All great businesses need someone who loves the day-to-day operations. Leesa has Anthony. He has honed is organisational and operational skills working in aviation, utilities, finance, fast moving consumer goods and business consultancy, launching new products and managing large multi million pound contracts. Anthony’s passion is putting all of the pieces and systems in place that allow a business to operate at its full potential. You will find Anthony on his road bike when not spending time with his two boys.

She has played a key role in building unique applications that range from social apps to scalable web platforms and she has experience in a multitude of programming languages.
