Benjamin Leszcz is a writer, editor and consultant living in Toronto, Canada. In addition to serving as the managing director of Whitman Emorson, a design and communications consultancy, he writes for a range of publications, including Bon Appétit, Details and Monocle.

In 2001, as an undergraduate, Leszcz co-founded Entrepôt, a student magazine of ideas, which grew to reach nearly 40,000 readers on campuses across Canada. Shortly after graduating, he joined the editorial staff of the celebrated, now-defunct general interest title, Saturday Night. He later became the style editor of Toro, which was, for the duration of its four-year life in print, Canada’s finest men’s magazine. After Toro, Leszcz moved to Montreal, where he was the senior editor of enRoute, Air Canada’s in-flight magazine. In 2008, Leszcz became a founding partner in DailyXY, a Canadian online men’s magazine; he also served as that magazine’s editor-in-chief for two years. During that time, Leszcz also consulted on the launch of a range of digital ventures, from AppBackr, a crowd-funding marketplace for apps, to Google Offers, a daily deal service.

In 2010, Leszcz moved to London, UK, and soon began working with Vice as an editor focused on custom publications. Later that year, he joined Winkreative, the multi-disciplinary, international communications agency founded by Tyler Brûlé. At Wink, Leszcz worked on branding, editorial and advertising projects for such clients as HyundaiCard (South Korea), Swire Properties (Hong Kong), Hermès (France), the Taoyuan International Airport (Taiwan) and Porter Airlines (Canada).

In 2013, Leszcz moved back to Toronto to join the design and communications consultancy Whitman Emorson as a partner.
