Having transformed the business in recent years from a print to a digital-first business, it’s an exciting time to join the team,” commented Lee. “We have some huge projects to deliver on in the short and long-term as well as an exciting, ambitious team to work with. On both sides of the Atlantic, our products are industry-leading and I’m looking forward to getting involved.”
