Expatica grew to become the most widely read English-language publication in Continental Europe, in any medium, rivaling major newspapers in readership.[1][3]

Lebo later returned to Canada and worked for the Government of Ontario, and as of 2008 served as the Director of Marketing and Brand Development for ServiceOntario, a Government of Ontario initiative to give Ontarians an easy, cost-effective way to access government services.[4] In 2009 he co-founded Gravitas Business Architects.

In recent years Lebo has worked as a radio host at Canoe FM (CKHA), "the Voice of Haliburton County" in Ontario's "cottage country", hosting the shows "County Hot Seat" and "Half Facts".[5]

Currently Lebo is publisher of and a columnist at the Haliburton Highlander newspaper[6] and serves on the Board of the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce [7]
