REDWOOD CITY, CA – October 6, 2021 – Legion, the pioneer in AI-powered workforce management, today announced the appointment of Michael Spataro as Chief Delivery Officer, and Leighanne Levensaler to the company’s Board of Directors.

“We are pleased to welcome Leighanne and Michael to Legion,” said Sanish Mondkar, Founder and CEO of Legion Technologies. “Leighanne’s dedication to improving the lives of hourly workers and her experience, especially relating to business and product strategy, will be invaluable to the Legion Board of Directors as we continue to grow and scale our business. Similarly, Michael’s decades of executive leadership and workforce management expertise within the retail space will provide valuable experience and insights during this exciting phase of Legion’s growth. Leighanne and Michael will complement our leadership team for our next phase of growth, and play key roles as we deliver world-class, data-driven workforce management (WFM) capabilities for better planning and execution to employers while simultaneously creating an employee experience that empowers hourly workers.”

Leighanne Levensaler will bring to the Legion board of directors more than 25 years of experience operating at the intersection of people, career development, and technology. Levensaler is the former executive vice president of corporate strategy at Workday and managing director and co-head for Workday Ventures, where she oversaw the company’s investments in emerging enterprise technologies. Levensaler currently serves on the board of directors for Guild Education and is a senior advisor for Opportunity@Work. She also contributes as an advisory board member for Landit, League, and Jobcase.

“I’m passionate about working with companies to create inclusive solutions designed to help people maximize their potential and economic mobility,” said Levensaler. “Legion’s mission to make hourly jobs, good jobs resonated with me from the get-go and I’m excited about the role I can play to advance it.”

Michael Spataro is a retail industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience driving successful workforce management strategies and implementations for large brands including Costco, Macy’s, Hyatt and IKEA among others. Spataro, who has a track record of building work-class delivery organizations, joins Legion from Axsium, a global workforce management consulting firm, where he was vice president of Services.

“Legion is truly disrupting the workforce management industry with groundbreaking innovation rooted in a deep understanding of the needs of the hourly workers and their employers,” said Spataro. “I’m pleased to be a part of the team to drive the next wave of growth in a market that’s grappling with an unprecedented labor shortage.”

These appointments follow the announcement last month of Legion’s launch of four new modules in the Legion Workforce Management platform, which reinforce the company’s commitment to delivering superior workforce management for employers and an improved employee experience to hourly workers.
