Leanne Ricchuiti

PR Account Executive

Leanne is all about telling a story, and screaming it from the rooftop. She’s not a quiet person, having graduated from Hofstra University with a theatre and communications degree, thinking all the while she’d make her name known from performing “up on the boards.”

However, life happens, and after her mother survived heart surgery, she found her family needed her more, and she came home to the Capital Region after graduation to pursue a career in local television.

After almost 15 years in television production, and a decade of that time at Spectrum News 1 Albany as an Assignment Editor, Leanne entered the Public Relations sector at a local firm in Troy, NY., before joining the Overit team in 2018. Her experience with storytelling, video production, editing, and producing, provides her with the ingredients to effectively flesh out the most interesting stories a client has to share–and get them placed in the news.

Leanne generates over a million dollars, annually, in earned media value for clients through placed content in local, regional, national, and trade publications. Her large network of local media contacts serves clients well to increase awareness of their business or cause.

Leanne is a full-time mom balancing dinos and diggers, with meetings and meal plans. She lives on Taborton Mountain in Rensselaer County with her husband, tornado toddler, and a clowder of cats.
