Our Executive Team
Founder & CEO
Eddie founded Oxygen in Paris in 1999 after working as an IT journalist for more than a dozen years. Before Oxygen, Eddie was high-tech section editor of Ziff-Davis (PC Magazine) and Groupe 01 (NextRadioTv). As a result, he’s an ardent believer in cutting through the fluff and hype to communicate relevant insights – the right message to the right journalist at the right time. Leblanc is also an investor and mentor in The Refiners, a San Francisco-based seed fund and was a co-creator of Augure, a reputation management tool introduced in 2002 that continues to be a standard in France and other parts of Europe.
He is a graduate of CFPJ, a Paris-based journalism training and development center.
