In his new post, he will be reporting to William W. Marshall, Leviton’s senior VP sales and marketing. Kleinman will lead the marketing, branding and advertising for the company’s full line of products across the distribution sales channel.

In a career spanning over 20 years with Leviton, Kleinman has held a series of positions in both marketing and communications. Kleinman was instrumental in Leviton’s 2007 rebranding campaign and helped successfully facilitate the transition on an enterprise level.
