He quit his job as a computerized information systems designer in 1975 and co-founded Washington Researchers with Leila K. Kight who was his wife. Due to a slow start at the company, Lesko started sending out a professional newsletter telling people how to get free information. By 1979, the company had employed over 30 people in its office in Washington D.C.
