Leo Bennett is the President of Variety Entertainment. A native of Mobile, Alabama, he earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy from Florida A&M University. He has practiced in community, retail and hospital settings.
As a young man, Leo was lured into entrepreneurial pursuits. His ability to realize the value of live music and his appreciation for watching people enjoy themselves led him into promoting concerts and other entertainment events in his hometown. Now, with 20+ years of experience, Bennett has learned the ups and downs of concert promotions as well as the expectations of concert-goers. He takes seriously the concept of “putting on the show” and making it go off without a hitch. Not just in it for the money (since he would be fabulously wealthy, but is quick to say he is not), Leo has been applauded for ensuring that proceeds from his events are donated to help others.
An avid golfer, Leo enjoys time on the links with brothers of Omega Psi Phi, but his heart also bleeds blue and silver for the Dallas Cowboys. Leo is blessed with constant support from his wife, family and friends.
