Lee began his career in the merchant navy as a Marine Engineer. He progressed through the ranks to become Chief Engineer on several ships and in his role as a Senior Officer he had management and leadership responsibilities for a team of engineers and support staff on board.
Lee decided he wanted a new challenge and decided to leave the navy to take up a new career working with young people. He became employed by Lothian Region and spent time as a Residential Care Officer in a number of the region’s children’s homes.
In 1987 Lee left the local authority to support the establishment of Moore House School and he has been with the organisation since this time, carrying out a variety of roles as the organisation developed.
Lee is now a Director on the Board and provides support and direction to the strategic plans with an emphasis on the areas of his expertise.
