Leo de Montaignac
Co-founder of Weedingtech, I am a keen foodie, cook and traveller. Responsible for building our world class team and steering our growth. I ensure Weedingtech remains focused on helping organisations around the world make their local areas greener, cleaner and safer than ever before. Committed to building long lasting relationships where our customers remain the top priority, I care passionately about Weedingtech being the best partner to anyone we work with.
Co-founder of Weedingtech, I’m a keen fly fisherman, foodie and globe trotter. Starting my career in finance, my passion for the environment and the clean-tech sector led me away from the City and in to working on IP commercialisation for start-up businesses in the cleantech space. Initially responsible for setting up key supplier relationships, I now develop our distribution networks across North America and Australasia, showing the world that the status-quo in weed control can ultimately become herbicide-free.
Keen traveller, looking to make the world a safer, cleaner and a herbicide free place! Looks after all things financial, previously the Finance Director at a fast-growing manufacturing and retail business, having qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PwC.

Interested in everything, I make sure Weedingtech machines fulfil all the needs of our customers and remain at the forefront of the ever-evolving technological landscape. I enjoy crafting the path from idea inception through to product fruition while solving the challenges that it presents. When not working I can be found practicing various competitive martial arts, scuba diving or enjoying life with family and friends – preferably around delicious (French) food and wine.

Having spent my career working for PwC providing a range of audit and consulting services across London and South America and then as a consultant and investment analyst for a private office in London, Weedingtech provided me with the opportunity to put my consulting theory into practice - working with a market changing product which addresses people's concerns for looking after the environment. I am responsible for working at a local level to oversee sales across Europe.
