Union Privilege Staff

Leslie Tolf

In August 2000, Leslie A. Tolf was elected president of Union Privilege, the organization that provides consumer benefit programs to over 13 million members of the AFL-CIO. Tolf was formerly assistant to the president of the AFL-CIO for member benefits. At the AFL-CIO, Tolf launched workingfamilies.com, the first Internet community for working people, and served as the liaison for Union Privilege products and services - including the Household credit card portfolio, as well as auto, phone, financial services, mortgage and insurance products.

For 5 years prior to coming to the AFL-CIO in 1998, Tolf provided marketing consulting to nonprofit organizations and foundations, including direct mail fundraising for HBO/Comic Relief.

Tolf, who holds a M.B.A. in Finance/Marketing from Columbia University, spent 11 years in marketing for Citicorp and American Express, where she managed marketing. She also volunteers as an elementary school tutor in Washington, D.C.
