Robert (Bob) Lesjak, grew up in Germany around soccer but devoted the long winters near the alps to being a top ranked junior skier instead. All three of his teenage children started playing Vienna Youth Soccer (VYS) House soccer at a young age and two are now passionate travel players. The two travel soccer players have become certified soccer referees and it is apparent that the sport will be part of their lives for years to come.
Robert is a finance professional at Verizon and is also experienced in the areas of product, commercial management and international business development. He began his telecom career at MCI, worked for global firms Lufthansa German Airlines and Commerzbank AG and has resided in Munich, Atlanta, Miami and San Francisco.
I strongly believe VYS is well positioned for the future with robust, active house and travel programs located in one of the most desirable communities in the region. I bring global perspective and a collaborative mindset with the aim of continuing to improve the VYS player experience at all levels while ensuring financial integrity of the club. I look forward to contributing to the success of VYS in a meaningful way.
