Lee is Commercial Manager at Wood Hall & Heward, where he manages the company's work in supporting civil engineering projects on and adjacent to the canal, as well as their ongoing freight transport on London's waterway network.
With interests in waterways heritage and a background in planning and architecture, Lee's role at WHH offers him the perfect opportunity to combine his personal and professional interests. He is responsible for developing and managing commercial relationships with clients, as well as ensuring that the company's work complies with all relevant regulations.
Lee has over 15 years of experience in the industry and is a passionate about commercial use of inland waterways. He believes that the inland waterway network can play a vital role in reducing the environmental impact of freight transportation and is committed to working with businesses and government to promote commercial use of waterways.
Lee has recently been appointed as chair of the Commercial Boat Operators Association and is a member of CRT's Navigation Advisory Group. Both of these roles provide a forum for the discussion of issues affecting inland water transport.
Outside of work, Lee and his partner own two historic GUCCC Motor Boats, Barnet and Cantley. Barnet is in working trim as part of the WHH fleet while Cantley is currently being refitted as a home on their mooring in Rickmansworth.
