About Luc Levesque.


Luc Levesque SEO Ottawa Growth Executive

I love building high-performing teams, leading online consumer products and growing them to reach millions of people.


When I was 21, I founded www.travelpod.com, the world’s first travel blogging platform. 10 years later, Expedia acquired us. As a general manager at Expedia, I led the creation of two award-winning products: TripWow and the Traveler IQ Challenge. Then, as an executive at TripAdvisor I built and led the growth team which helped TripAdvisor become the world’s largest travel site across 55 international sites in 29 languages.


Today, I’m at Facebook where I lead a product area that takes on inspiring opportunities that have the potential to positively impact the lives of billions of people. As an advisor I also help companies like Twitter, Pinterest and Quora grow.


I’m passionate about leadership and have had some of my thoughts featured in the New York Times. I am also honored to have received the International Executive of the Year Award and the Ottawa Business Journal Forty Under 40 Award.

“Luc’s candid approach to managing people extends to his efforts to build a transparent work environment, turning management into a conversation.” -Business Insider

“The most satisfying environment for top-talent, is working with other top-talent.” – Send me a note to join the team.





I’m always on the hunt for incredible talent. Are you the go-to person at work? The star talent that loves what they do and has a passion for big challenges and working with other star-performers? If so, find out how to work on my team, you’ll love it.





When I can, I enjoy speaking at events and giving back to the community. Whether it is one on one with CEOs, founders or students or at larger group events. Reach out and if your event fits with my interests and schedule, I might be able to help.





I’m passionate about helping established start-ups and companies get to the next level of their growth. If your company requires advice in areas such as growth, leadership, or product market fit, I might be able to contribute. These days I don’t have much spare time to advise but when I do I focus on companies that already have reached product market fit and are addressing a large market.





I’m open to all kinds of opportunities to get involved in new things that are interesting, challenging and fun. Want to chat? Drop me a line.
