Steve Leveen is the Chairman and co-founder of Levenger, the first company in America to design products with readers in mind. The company’s offerings include high-quality notebooks, pens, leather goods, and products that work with iPads and smartphones. Levenger also has a publishing arm specializing in collector editions of historically important books.
Steve confessed in his book The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life that he came late to the bookshelf. But he has made up for lost time, becoming an early proponent of audiobooks, an ardent champion of permission-based reading, and a steadfast supporter of libraries.
Steve earned his bachelor’s in biology in his hometown at the University of California-San Diego, and his master’s and doctoral degrees in sociology from Cornell. His articles on the human side of technology have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Boston Globe and the Christian Science Monitor.
Steve serves on the boards of the National Book Foundation and of the Conscious Capitalism organization. He also serves in education roles for the World Presidents' Organization. Steve and his wife, Lori, who co-founded Levenger, have two sons and live in Delray Beach, Florida, where Levenger is headquartered.
