Steve Van Leeuwen
Steve Van Leeuwen’s real-world expertise and successful Internet marketing track-record is never more obvious than in that initial strategy session he has with all new clients. He’ll make you an intensely strong cup of coffee, joyfully give you a tour of the building and then proceed to break your business down to parts you may not have been aware existed. After he’s done, you’ll see your future in a whole new light, and you’ll probably be really excited about it.
Steve started his career with Roche Diagnostics where he rose to Worldwide Director of New Product Development and Specialty Markets. Products developed from his tenure with Roche, including blood glucose instruments for diabetes, have enjoyed sales of over one billion dollars. Steve has also served as shareholder and Vice President of Bainbridge Sciences, a Seattle-based biotechnology company that developed unique products for cancer detection. Following the successful sale of the company to he went on to serve as their Worldwide Director of Marketing and Business Development for Diagnostics. As president of Ciniva Web Agency, he’s our chief strategist, client advocate, campaign genius and personal leader. It’s easy to keep moving forward when you know a really great person has your back.
Steve is also our resident coffee expert, in-house dog trainer, and giver of the best compliments and gifts. Generous to a fault, Steve always goes that extra distance to spoil his people and his clients. He recently celebrated a milestone by purchasing and renovating a historic gem of a building in downtown Norfolk and then promptly installing a kegorater.
