Getting To Know: Leo Gamboa – Reebok

As we are all encouraged to stay working at home during these difficult times, we connected with friends from some of our favourite brands here at Hip to get an insight into their worlds. This week, we caught up with Leo Gamboa, Global Streetwear Collaborations Manager at Reebok to check in on his current situation at his home in Boston.

Hi Leo, please introduce yourself and your role at Reebok?

What things in life have you come to appreciate more during these times?

In the current state I have definitely learned to appreciate time with friends and family and to take advantage of being outside as much as possible. Times like this we realize to not take things for granted.

If the world went back to normal tomorrow what is the first thing you’d do?

Hmmm. Meet with some family and friends for meal and cold drink. 

There’s usually a silver lining with all tricky situations, what’s yours?

Taking advantage of time at home to organize haha.  People sometimes say I wish I had a week to work from home to catch up and get themselves together and now we have that so def use this time to do those things.
