2016 Game Changer: Shea Coakley
Healthy, fresh and customized meals are the alternative to expensive catering for this co-founder of LeanBox.
Workplace wellness and stellar office cultures go hand in hand with Shea Coakley’s Boston-based company, LeanBox. As an alternative to a space-consuming cafeteria and expensive catering, the company brings customized assortments of healthy, fresh meals, snacks and beverages to clients. When using LeanBox, employees can use a touchscreen display on a refrigerator to buy products or select food purchased by their employer. Based on sales, votes and new product options, deliveries are customized to each client. Other products include a cold brew coffee station and a water cooler.
Alex Baggio, Coakley’s business partner in another endeavor, PERKS Convention, said Coakley’s a great public speaker and is a thought leader on office cultures. “Shea’s continued focus on improving the overall workplace culture and employee perks has quickly made him a ‘game changer’ for the modern office,” said Baggio, the director of operations at 2020 On-Site Optometry and founder and co-chair of PERKS Convention.
The 32-year-old entrepreneur gives back to his community, too. Coakley has been involved in several Boston-based organizations, including the ONEin3 Boston, an initiative by Boston’s mayor to engage the young people of Boston in city affairs.
