Christopher Lesko

After 20+ years in the Personal Care industry I have decided to start a new distribution company, Catalyst Technologies, Inc., that is focused on what I call, The Triangle of Development. By focusing our efforts on this three-point sales process we are sure to bring success to our Suppliers, our Customers and our Industry.

At Catalyst Technologies, Inc. we are focused on facilitating a meaningful connection and relationship between our Suppliers and our Customers through a working transparency model. At the pillar of our philosophy I go back to one of my favorite authors and speaker, Zig Ziglar: "You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” An old friend introduced me to this philosophy while I was a lab technician at Con Agra Foods about 25 years ago and I cannot be more grateful. That brief encounter and the birth of my daughter Cheyenne Rossetti Lesko, 27 years ago gave me the motivation to look beyond myself and make that first sales call at a small lab down in Oceanside, California.

My career in the Personal Care, Cosmetic and HI&I Industries started in 2008 shortly after I graduated from college. Upon earning my degree in Biology, I joined Coast Southwest and worked there for four years before joining Chemtec Chemical Company in 2012. Five years later, in 2017, I joined E.T. Horn and spent three years there before coming to Catalyst Technologies.   

I've spent my entire career in raw material distribution specializing in Personal Care collaborating directly with brands, beauty incubators, product developers, formulators, and contract manufacturers. It's an honor to bring ingredients from premier global manufacturers to our clients to help spark creativity & innovation and bring stand-out products to market. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Beauty Industry West (BIW), an LA-based non-profit, mutual-benefit organization serving the beauty industry and have also served as a committee member for the California Society of Cosmetic Chemists and You Be the Chemist program, the Chemical Education Foundation's academic competition that celebrates the science of chemistry and elevates STEM careers.

I'm an Orange County native, proud Cal State Fullerton alum (B.S. Biological Sciences, Cell Biology) where I was a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority as well as a President of the Order of Omega Honor Society. I currently live in Anaheim with my fiancé Brian and our two rescue kitties Ginger and Coco.
